light...

as the morning light starts to dance around the room...
and the house starts to wake up...


i savor this quiet opportunity...


these peaceful moments...


and this warm glow...

























and embrace the
light.
i hope a light shines on you today.
welcome new followers! i am so glad you are here!

ERIN!!!!! I hope you got my comment from about an hour ago on your last post. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your enthusiasm and visit today. YOUR POST IS AWESOME, THE WORDS, THE SENTIMENT....mine, exactly. AND THE PICTURES. THE BLUE...you really know how to capture the turquoise color. HOW on earth did you get the blue to stand out so? What kind of a camera are you using? I NEED ONE!!! Many happy thoughts to you dearest, Anita

Hi Erin,
As usual, your photographs are stunning. Those blue Ball jars are favorites and the morning light is so soft and pretty. A special time of day indeed. I love the way you have decorated your pretty home for the holidays. Enjoy! :)

Every time I visit here, Erin - I leave with a sense of calm and serenity. While I reading your post today, I could just FEEL the solitude and peace that you were experiencing this morning. *sigh*....

Your photos are always so beautiful, too. What type of camera do you use? Do you use a macro lens?

Love your photos!! HOWEVER!! I noticed on your side bar "I'm dreaming of a white Tennessee Christmas" !! Due to work schedules and knowing weather can put a damper on things, when trying to get my "gang" together for the holidays I don't want snow and ice. Please keep the "white stuff" up your way! :-D
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Glenda
P.S.: Love the aqua colored bottle!

Your pictures are so pretty, I love how the blue just pops. I think my favorite pictures are the snow pictures on the side bar. I am in a snowglobe right now, we are having a small snow storm and I am just loving being warm in my home.

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Erin, I love, love, love your snow pictures in the sidebar. And the lovely blues and greens that you have captured in these photos are absolutely gorgeous! Now that it's December 6th, I hope you are enjoying the music of the season. :) Best wishes, Tammy
