Merry Holidays

On Christmas Eve, Mark and I decided to take our pup, Micah, for a walk down by the pier.  The air was crisp and cool and there were just enough clouds in the sky to create the most sensational sunset.

This is Southern California.  One of the most beautiful places on earth.  When I spotted this adorable family celebrating Christmas right there on the sand, it made me smile.  This is just how we do things out here.  Sometimes irreverent, oftentimes laid back, but always, always unique.

Downtown San Clemente seemed to be floating against the cerulean blue sky.(Or maybe it was just my soul set free.)

The light show in the sky cast a purplish-pink hue down on the ocean.  Fantastically, I do not enhance my photos.  What you are seeing, is what you get.

My guys!

Merry Christmas, happy Chanukah, and most of all, have a very healthy, happy New year!  Can you believe that we are now a decade into the 2000's???

From our home to yours, may the coming year be filled with joy, love, inspiration and lots of good things.

I am so grateful to my wonderful readers, those of you who comment and those of you who just stop by. Each one of you inspires me to continue writing and to continue shooting pictures.  Just knowing that you are out there, whether sharing your lovely thoughts with me or just popping in quietly, makes me feel heard, supported and appreciated.  Thank you.

Debbie these photos are exquisite...I feel a longing in my heart for all that sunshine and sand! And at the same time, there is great beauty here in the snowy new england woods.

may we all be satiated by the beauty of the places in which we find ourselves.

Oh Deb, I just love those photos and will be saving the one of the pier to my desktop to just dream of summer returning. As I sit here in the office and look outside it's pouring snow and in the 30's....brrrrrr! I hope you and your family have a wonderful and safe New Year!

Deb, I know you've talked about putting together a book of your musings... you MUST include photos too! You are so good at capturing images that match your words. Happy New Year to you too, and I'm sorta not believing we're already into a new decade. Crazy! xxoo
