A Little Something That Made Me Happy

Hello my dear friends,

I would love to share something that made me happy these past few days. I like to take photographs once in a while when I see something that catches my eye, especially when it has anything to do with nature. I thought it would be fun to submit a photo or two to a local magazine called "The Beat" magazine that talks and showcases art in our city. There is a section called "the final frame" in which they print a photograph that was submitted by someone of a place in our city or surrounding area. I submitted one of my photo's ...

... and they decided to publish it!!

This is the cover of the November issue in which my photograph has been published.

And this is my photograph ...

... a beautiful tree in all it's color and glory of Autumn with a touch of glistening whiteness of Winter!!

I took this picture a few years ago when our city had a sudden snowfall over night which unfortunately claimed many trees that broke under the weight of all the snow on top. Thankfully there were trees that were fine. This beautiful tree is standing at a park on our street and I took it that morning walking my younger daughter Caylagh to school. It is such a beautiful sight!

I am still working very hard on my "old" design but yet again time is not on my side with many chores in and outside of home, so don't give up ~ I will finish it. It's just 'when' I can't tell you right now.

I hope you are all well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
