New beginnings

Long shadows


It's been a whirlwind of a life of late. And most of it has been good :) My husband and I have found ourselves a common employer. Didn't I tell ya that we are practically inseparable :) Well not really, though we are working for the same organization, our offices are like 15 miles apart. I'm certain my husband mumbles "Thank God for small mercies" to that!!!!! We call snow-clad Mid-west (Illinois to be precise) home now.....And as I work towards settling down, setting up our apartment and getting comfortable at the workplace with new faces and names around moi, here are a coupla images from my immediate surroundings. A vast change from the sun-drenched Florida, aren't they :) These mark my two years here on blogdom. Viva blogging :)

Best of luck in all your new surroundings. Looking forward to your take on the midwest -- you are already making the snow seem as inviting as the beach. Um, almost. :)

What I love about these photos in this post is how they show such delicate things in nature that have miraculously withstood the tests of nature. Reminds me of you.

Welcome to winter. :)

I'm so glad you're settling in to a new place, new jobs. I hope and pray all goes well and that you'll find satisfaction with the new employment..and of course, the new surroundings. I suspect you'll be happy wherever you are, as long as you're with your dear hubby :)

Viva!!! Awesome, congratulations! What a lovely shade, so much bigger and stronger than the tiny leaf standing alone on beautiful cold snow... Is the snow thicker there, it looks like it has a different granulosity, just curious.

Ginnie said...

Welcome to the Midwest, Moi! My ex-husband has relatives in Peoria, so I know the city a bit. :)

Catherine said...

Lot's of luck to you Moi on all the wonderful exciting changes taking place in your life!

Lovely shots..I love the first one of the leaf blowing across the snow..beautiful!!

I hate that you are no longer a fellow Floridian, but now you have a whole new world to explore with your camera.

Best wishes to you and your husband in your new life.

Sandy said...

Lovely shots. I especially like the leaf in the snow. So simple yet beautiful.

Best wishes on your new home and job. What an adjustment from Florida to Illinois!
