A Girls’ Weekend in Chattanooga

My daughter and I enjoyed a nice mother/daughter weekend in Chattanooga while my husband and son stayed home and rode go karts.   I started taking my daughter’s Senior Photos (I am still choking on that phrase) while in some very characteristic Chattanooga spots. I still can’t believe she’ll be a Senior in high School next year.  Enjoy every moment, my friends!  Time passes by just too fast.

These photos are from the Tennessee Aquarium.  It is a beautiful place.  More photos to come.

Gorgeous Creature

This gorgeous creature has landed on our deck railing a few times in the past couple of weeks, but my camera is usually in the other room.  This day I happened to have it within reach and was able to capture this shot.  He definitely had his eye on something but I definitely had my eye on him!

First Morning Light

The hubby and I took a beach trip together for our 20th Anniversary without kids and we had a wonderful time.  Most of the week there was rain but the clouds and storms in the distance that made for some beautiful photos.  This is one of my favorite moments…. I woke up around 5am this particular morning, looked out the window and saw this!  I have always loved the beach and scenes like this are one of the reasons why!  Every day is different and provides a beautiful, new canvas to work with.  One day I hope to live there.  🙂

A Rare Snow Day for Us

We almost never see snow in December in Georgia.  If it snows at all, it will be in January or February … if we are lucky.

After a forecast of a “sprinkle of snow” and “no accumulation”, we received around 5-7 inches of snow.  This is a lot of snow for us.  Schools closed early on Friday and school was cancelled the following Monday.  Every kids’ dream.

We had a blast in this unusual, wonderful, “schedule clearing” weekend, throwing snowballs, sledding, walking in the woods, drinking hot chocolate, eating popcorn, and watching movies.

A great way to kick off the Christmas season.
