The candles have been lit, the lights have been dimmed, and smoke from the burning incense is billowing out of the small censer perched on the mantle of our family altar.

Here we are having our third ice storm of the season. Everyone’s thrown off this morning because I’m making a big brunch on a Sunday morning. The roads are horrible, ice has encased all the trees, and more ice and snow are forecasted for the rest of the day. We made the call to stay home from church this morning. I’m not sure what’s throwing all of us off more – eating breakfast on a Sunday morning or purposely staying home. As I sit here and type, I’m listening to the clink, clink of ice on the window beside me. Once again, we’re going to miss Forgiveness Sunday Vespers. But…we have our family tradition of Family Forgiveness Night so it’s not a total loss. Please forgive me if I have hurt or offended any of you. It was truly not my intention.Read More

I woke Les up with a whiff of coffee on his night stand and asked him to keep an eye on Gabriel while I took some pictures outside. I quickly slipped on a coat, gloves, and shoes and went out to be greeted by the bite of the winter morning. The only noise to be heard in our yard was the deep crunch of my boots as I walked across the ice covered snow.
Everything is encased in a layer of ice. All around it looks as if everything has been preserved and I can’t help but want to capture it before it melts away.Read More
This is a little project I’ve been doing with Gabriel since he was a month old. It’s amazing to see his growth in such a short amount of time.Read More
