There is beauty in the air As the fading sun smiles upon my face For it is a fall day And the world is a magical place The leaves flutter and fall Gently down from the sky While the birds sing their last songs Before saying goodbye Is it the deep hues of orange and red That soften my heart Or the brilliant blue sky That surrenders me to start Dreaming of all that the future holds As each special […]
I took this picture Saturday after our big snowstorm that welcomed winter in Minnesota. The snow is here to stay for the time being. Another storm is coming this weekend!

I wish I had my real camera. This is just my iPhone yet it […]
Photo taken a few days ago at Lake Harriet near my home in Southwest Minneapolis. I find it fitting to feature this photo today. As summer winds down with a blast of heat today (high of 95 F!) and school has once began again, this sunset reminds me that fall is on its way. I’ll miss my summer sunsets over the lake but look forward to the magical fall colors that September and October will surely bring.
Today was the last day of school marking the onset of summer in my book. I took these photos on my walk around the lake. Feeling bittersweet. Another year just went quickly by.
