Sunflowers: A series two years ago on Quieting Fall featured photos of these cheery flowers!

Thermos: From one of our first apple picking picnics!
Goldenrod: Slow Day breakfast picnic at the boat landing near our house in Fall yielded some free weeds for decorating our table!

Hummingbird: One slow Saturday morning while I was sitting on my porch having breakfast, this hummingbird posed beautifully for me!
Cozy Layers: it is no surprise how much I love layering - I guess this is an example of a day it was actually cool enough to endure layers here!

Beach Picnic: When David brings home leftover sandwiches we make a memory out of it!
Writing Scene: One of my Sunday afternoon writing sessions - working on Slow Lane!

Page 83:
Church: After seeing this church on our way to my parents house so many times, I finally stopped to take a picture of it! It looks more run down every time we pass so I'm glad to have captured it, I love old buildings and would love to see inside it!! Matheson, CO.
Paper Wreath: a fun diy!

Page 86:
Slippers: I've had fun participating in the December Photo Project for several years. Waking up to snow is always photo worthy in my book! And I miss these slippers which I wore completely out!
Thanksgiving Snacky Lunch: Our favorite snacky lunch sandwiched in between a big Thanksgiving breakfast and dinner!


Page 89:
Sunrise: Winter sky watching the sun come up through the skeleton of the crabapple tree in my parents backyard.
JOY lights: one year at Target I thought I'd buy these on the after-Christmas clearance and then they were all gone! I was so sad until the next year when I spotted them again and promptly bought them right then! A fun bright spot on our piano each year!
