52 Wednesdays :: Cold

This is week six of my 52 Wednesdays project and at this point I'm seriously proud of myself for posting every week.  I realize that I'm only 11.5% through, but I'm still happy. =)  As a crazy busy person, it's a small kind of accomplishment to stay committed to something that could easily pushed to the side for the sake of getting more than 6 hours of sleep.  But fortunately, this evening I'm proud of myself because of my progress and I'll be getting 7 hours of sleep.  It's like a dream come true!

This week our theme was "cold," which we have plenty of around these parts this time of year.  Not midwestern cold, but cold and dark and dreary nonetheless.  I did have a session this past weekend that was cold and there were pink little noses and all, but I thought of a different way to keep with the theme and put a very cheery spin on it.

With that in mind, I feel like I'm bursting at the seams waiting for spring to arrive!  Soon there will be crocus, daffodils, and blooming trees like magnolia, plum, and cherry.  Then there will be tulips and the leaves will come back and before I know it; half the year will have passed and I will be wearing skirts with sandals and the sun will warm my skin while a light breeze moves gently through my hair.  I can hardly contain myself thinking about it.  AND--there will be ice cream, gelato, and popsicles with giggles and smiles from the little Miss and me who love, love, love summer.  I'm waiting...

So here is my picture of cold... one of the most delightful kinds of cold I know. =)

Be sure to continue with the circle so that you can see the many other representations of "cold" in our group.  Next is Christine O'Connell, an Orlando Wedding Photographer.
