above the storms

Clouds can be fascinating.

To leave in a plane from a drizzly, cold and snowy climate
and then break through the clouds and see this.
Gods beauty for sure!
The pictures don't do it justice, as it was mesmerizing.

Calendar boy, here we come!

My cat Princey is one of the loves of my life. Yes, I just admitted it.

I love that fluff of fur more than I should - he gets the royal treatment but returns the love right back. I got him from Cozy Kitten cattery which breeds the most amazing cats! He is a mini persian, so is supposed to remain around 6 pounds. He likes to eat anything we do though so he might need to get his track suit on and run after some birds in the backyard!

Princey turned one in August, and is very playful and affectionate. He has a blankie he sleeps on all night, and must be cuddled whenever possible. He loves to get out in his cat stroller and go for walks, and recently I discovered he lets me play dress up with him! These are all great distractions when I no longer want to edit photos or do computer work... or clean the house! So, I'm going to share just a few pictures I took of him with different headpieces on. He stayed still while I adjusted and took the photos, so I am wondering just how dolled up I can get him.

Calendar boy, here we come!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays.

My daughter can help decorate and there is such anticipation for Christmas day! While all the presents are fun and the giving of gifts is even MORE fun, I love having another opportunity to teach my little girl about God. His birth is a story she knows well :)

Decorating is another enjoyment/frustration (!) of the holiday. I am trying to phase out any decorations that are not vintage or shabby, and deciding where to put it all can be a challenge. But, if all problems could be this unimportant!

My sister and her new husband are also coming into town, and I just shot their wedding in Geyserville, CA. It was beautiful and they were such a gorgeous couple who were full of love for each other and all of the family surrounding them. Welcome to our family Lucky!
