Mother Nature Just Rocked My World!



The day was one of those super exciting snow days you had as a kid... at least that's how I felt. It hasn't really snowed much in New England as of Feb. 1st 2016 so I just knew this was going to be a whopper. 

When we woke in the morning it was a beautiful dusting of glittery white powder... that never stopped... and the snowflakes were ever growing... and growing... and growing. We took a hike through the woods and threw our selves around in winter's soft blanket. We built a snowman and went sledding... it was such a fun day, definitely one for the books.

Finally as dinner time approached, I quickly ran to the store and on my way home... the heavens opened up in a way that was, the most visually euphoric experience I've ever had. After mother earth gave everything a 2 foot covering of sparkling white pow, the sunshine showed her lovely face and lit up my little corner of the world. 

My Quick Trip to Austin

Austin... it's a weird place, man... but it's a cool place. A place to just let your creativity and own thoughts flourish. At least that's how I felt! My friends and I had a great time visiting, being crazy and whoopin' it up! I'm so happy I brought my camera with me. My wee Nikon D700 with a 50 mm 1.4 lens, did just the trick. Small enough for my bag and way lighter than the D3s. 

So... this is how the trip started off... picked up from the airport by some real Austin folk...

the tone was set! {obvi I was there to party...NO KIDS) 

p.s. that pregnancy test was our sick joke on the boys! no one is having a baby :)
