Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

IMG_0178IMG_4659IMG_0187

One year ago my best friend passed away.  The last time I walked through these woods, I was with Maisie and Annie and she and I had just finished a phone call.  I knew it was bad, but I didn’t know that I would never see or talk to her again.  I haven’t been back to these woods since then because they remind me of her.

Today I went back.  It was time to see this beautiful place again.  This time with Maisie, Annie and Winn.  My daughter also came with me and as we walked I was able to breathe the air, smell the leaves and think of my friend and enjoy this place once again.

I’m so thankful for this transformation in my heart.  The passage of time helps, but being with my three dogs and my lovely daughter made it easier to venture in and embrace the  natural beauty that surrounded us.

Weekly Photo Challenge: textures

A cold front came blowing through so Maisie and I snuck out and walked to our favorite place.  We were surrounded by different textures:IMG_3274

The different angles of the rocks, the trees against the sky

her blowing hair, the rocks, the water, the Chicago skyline

Weekly Photo challenge: unusual

From our weekend walk:

We had to stop and admire this vintage Cadillac with a boat trailer attached.  That’s not something you see every day! (I’m imagining that the boat is vintage as well.)IMG_0465take a peek at some other unusual photos: unusual photo challenge
