This Season of Life: 22/52 “leaves”

This Season of Life is a 52-week photography project through which my friend Mary and I will share photos that depict various moments from the current season in which we find ourselves. Having remained friends for the past 12 years, we have experienced a lot of seasons together (and some apart), as we now live in very different places. Having stayed in touch, we continue to share our life experiences and challenges with one another. This has been an incredible gift that continues to shape our friendship. We hope you will follow our Project 52 and enjoy the images that we share.

If you know me, you know I love my house plants. Granted, most of them are succulents and plants that don’t require a lot of attention (Except my fiddle leaf fig! I’m kind of proud that I can keep one alive, given how finicky they are.). The way the sun catches on the sharp blades of this mother-in-law’s tongue that sits in our living room makes me pause almost every afternoon. The green and the yellow are so bold, it’s stunning. I’d say any reason to pause and enjoy nature’s beauty is well worth slowing down.

Now, take a moment and check out my friend Mary’s photo this week: Nature in the Snow. While you’re at it, look around her site, Mary Goldau, a bit more and view our last Project 52. I am sure you will fall in love with her photos and see what a special person she is, just as I have.

Whew! It’s been a minute (or many!). We’re finally back to posting here on our Project 52 after quite a hiatus. Life gets in the way, and we just have to go with the flow.

Here are a couple of images of beautiful, natural settings that caught my eye from a recent visit with family to the local arboretum and mission nearby. Both images remind me to always keep my eyes open to the natural beauty that surrounds us. Enjoy!

PS: Before you go, don’t forget to see my dear friend, Mary’s photo. Just from the title, you can guess we live in very different winter climates! 😉 xoxo

This Season of Life: 20/52 “foggy San Francisco”

This Season of Life is a 52-week photography project through which my friend Mary and I will share photos that depict various moments from the current season in which we find ourselves. Having remained friends for the past 12 years, we have experienced a lot of seasons together (and some apart), as we now live in very different places. Having stayed in touch, we continue to share our life experiences and challenges with one another. This has been an incredible gift that continues to shape our friendship. We hope you will follow our Project 52 and enjoy the images that we share.

This past week I was in San Francisco for a work conference, but I had some time to sneak away with my camera for an hour or two. These foggy photos are from the well known Pier 39, and while the colors aren’t as vibrant at that time of morning as I would have liked, it was nice to explore the area with very few tourists and others walking around the pier.

We’ve been in preparation mode around here lately… preparing for our special little gift. She’s due to arrive in a little over a month and we’re putting the finishing touches on her room. For now, here are some images of some of my favorite little corners of her room so far.

Last week I got to take a morning to visit a friend, chat over coffee and bake these wonderful orange flavored mini muffins. It was the middle of the week, not even a weekend. There’s something about doing something social, for yourself and just turning off the work clock for a bit to be able to recharge and connect with a friend that is truly priceless.

We are back after a long hiatus from our usual TSoL posting. Life events took over, but we’re glad to be posting again! This beautiful bloom is from our plumeria tree out front. It was neglected, dry and just needed a little TLC. Since I shot this image, all the blossoms have bloomed on it!

Happy mail comes every so often, but not always on the same day. This week I received mail from friends in Germany and Japan. It made me realize how lucky I am to have friends who live in and travel to so many places. It’s nice to have friends with similar values and a love for travel and new places. Receiving snail mail from these places only makes me want to visit them more. After all, travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
