Winter Wonderland

We woke Monday morning to find the snow fall during the night had coated all the trees and created a beautiful winter wonderland. I couldn't resist getting out in my yard and street and shooting a few shots. It wasn't long until I begin to notice the little bits of color peeking out from under the snow. I ran back and got my macro lens and had some fun shooting teeny tiny berries, and even a leaf. I was delighted to have so many photo ops right in my yard. Our house. (above)

Abbi's New Haircut

One of the big things on my after I move to do list was to find a groomer for Abbi. She is a teeny tiny yorkie and weighs only 3# 4 oz so I am really careful who I let groom her. I want to be sure it is someone who will be careful with her and be gentle with her, and someone I can trust.

Before I moved I searched for groomers in the St. Louis area and found a few. This one looked really good to me . Last Monday we dropped by with Abbi and met Gina then we made an appointment and took her back the next day. Gina and Sasha (I think I have her name right) were very nice. I was really impressed with the way they handled Abbi. They were very gentle with her, very patient and seemed to really know what they were doing. I was well pleased with them and would reccomend them as groomers!

You should have seen the pitiful hair cut she had before she went to Clean As A Whisker. I cut her hair right before we moved and needless to say it didn't look very good. I have decided I am not good at cutting hair :)

Samantha Claire

Samantha is 3 months old now. She is so cute and loves to smile at you when you talk to her. We really enjoyed spending time with her during our Christmas trip to TN.



Welcome to my blog. I plan on sharing things I see and capture thru my camera.

About Me

My photo
I am 49 years old, I have 2 adult sons, a grandaughter & a grandson. I am happily married to the love of my life. I have been intrigued with photography for as long as I can remember. I am constantly striving to learn something new and improve my photography. I love doing portraits, macros, and scenic shots. I literally take my camera everywhere I go. I find that the more I learn about photographing my world, the more I learn to "see" the beauty around me.
