Moments of gratitude

We had our first snow storm of the year on Friday night. It was so pretty and soft when I woke up Saturday morning. It wasn’t easy to go to the grocery store, but instead of being upset for all the trouble I noticed few things to be grateful for.

my water proof and super warm boots
hubby and his big red shovel opening the path for me
the evergreens from my neighbour front yard covered in snow perfect for few shots.
the crunching sound when I walked on the snow, it’s so relax for me
the beauty of my street

It is still snowing right now, I can see from my desk the snow flakes dancing outside. Hope the roads will be ok tomorrow morning to go to work.

Have a great week!

Sunday Stills: Frozen River

Today, Terri asks us to post about Frozen, an easy theme for me. I only need to cross a street to take a few pics of a frozen river. Many pretty spots to shoot, but this one above is magical, an ice sculpture!

This corner was sparking while being bathed with sunshine. I stopped there a little bit, a few minutes of solitude listening to the water move under the ice.

And on the way, I found this piece of ice shaped like a heart. Yes, secret messages everywhere.

Hope you enjoyed to walk along the frozen river with me.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

whiteness and wildness

 

This view is a bliss to me. Every morning while nursing a cup of coffee in my hands I look outside my kitchen door. The connection between the white sky and the snow on the ground making everything whole.

Nature has taught me so much these last years. One of the most important things is LET GO, let go of stuff that takes me away from my true self. I’ve learned that I own my body, my soul, and space where I step on. There is no room to be smiling and pleasing others anymore at the cost of my happiness.  I need to be happy with myself, to be content and true with my feelings in first place.

Nature has taught me that there is time for everything: time to keep and to let go.
