How time flies. Next thing you know, the blog’s been untouched for 2 weeks! Started my day early today and found time to post something new. I hope you had a wonderful holidays! A great year awaits us all.
Every time I teeter through my lavender field photographs, I want to book a flight back to Provence. Simply too beautiful for words and images alone can’t quite do it justice.
Hope everyone is all geared up for Christmas! Best time of the year. Also a crazy busy time; been getting orders out the door faster than lightning. ;)
Home renovations are coming together!! Will share our progress in the new year with before and after pictures!
Here’s a new print of the glorious Italian countryside: Il Cipressino, in Pienza, Tuscany. Took us a little while to find this place, getting lost a few times, which I actually love because getting lost means ending up in places and hidden gems that were never on the itinerary. We found it in the end and boy was it gorgeous.
Another selfie in Iceland, taken by the hubby. I had a big urge to book a flight to Iceland today to travel the northern part. Perhaps in a few months; I still have enough photos to hold me over a little longer, thank goodness. :)
This, my friends, is the Tuscany that you’ve gotta see. I feel like if you don’t drive through the Val D’Orcia region, you miss this altogether!!! It’s just so beautiful and I’m so happy that I have hundreds more to share. :)
I’m here and alive. It. has. just. been. so. busy. Renovations have made our lives extremely chaotic lately!! We’ve been working non-stop, around the clock. If we’re not working away at work, then we’re working away here at home. We have not had time to do anything else at all and have made a ton of sacrifices the last few months to get the house perfected and beautiful. That means I have not had a chance to enjoy the awesome fall weather :(.
I’m definitely missing taking pictures, blogging, and posting! All I’ve been able to squeeze in are order fulfillments during renovation breaks throughout our evenings and weekends. Having said that, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel! The truly great things never come easy and this is one of those great things. :) We are just powering through and I’m hopeful that all will be in order soon! My studio is relatively set up at least. :) Pictures to come soon! Here’s a quick one of the streets of Paris!
Never have I been so captivated by the “dark”. Reynisdrangar, the black sand beach in southern Iceland was truly stunning. The sand and rocks were black, the water a mix of silver and white, the clouds a thick fog, the waves fierce and all I could think was “wow”. I stood there for hours just admiring. Sometimes I can’t decide between two shots, so I post both. :)
Helen Keller once said: “There is beauty in everything; even in silence and darkness.” I would have to agree. :)
We’re all moved in! We have not unpacked nor do we have internet set up. It was actually a bit of a nightmare to think I’d have to go a week without internet. But thanks to tethering, that nightmare never materialized. :) I decided to post something quick tonight as I reminisce to those beautiful days in Iceland.
Most shots of this church in Vik is typically quite bright and cheerful, but the couple of days that we were in Vik, it was raining. But rain in many cases is a blessing in photographs. It brings a completely different touch and creates a whole new image that I like to describe as haunting and beautiful. :)
One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Glaciers in Iceland during the summer…! Left me absolutely in awe.
I’m posting in the middle of the week, that’s progress. :) It actually helps me relax and I should make a point to do it. It’s Wednesday tomorrow and our brand new floors and stairs will be ALL DONE. Can’t wait to see them!!! Back again soon.
