Weekly Photo Challenge: Smile

This is my second post to the Smile photo challenge. These are some of the pictures I’ve taken since my son was born that I cannot help but smile to. Go ahead, and try not to smile! Smile.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

This week’s photo challenge, Awakening, evokes images of tiny delicate flowers poking up through garden beds and in brownish-green lawns. Many of my fellow northeastern residents are longing for this! This winter has been particularly harsh and long-lasting. It just seems like Mother Nature has not gotten the memo that it is April, not February. Many…

Book Review: Red Clocks by Leni Zumas
