The Wintry Holidays are Upon Us!

May the love, joy and energy filled world infuse you life with happiness!

An image that is showing us the way to peace! How can we not follow it!

A majestic animal, the horse has always held power and elegance for me!

The reflection and glimmer of light transforms these snow laden branches.

Look at how even though these dogs are working hard for their owner, they are also loving the journey, enjoying what nature brings them along the way!



Sometimes simplicity says it all. Even though I love color, the peace and calm of this wreath's beauty is perfection!

Nature has a way of moving us, of bringing out the best we can offer to others!

Cherish a day like this, if you can stay inside,  read  and reflect all the better!

Imagine only the best and all good things will come to the most unexpected ways!


Dream big dreams for this New Year!
Joyeux Noel!
