saturday morning - christie lake

I almost didn't venture out this morning with Sophie. I am leaving for a conference early tomorrow morning and have much work to do before I go. But....the sun began to peek through my window and Sophie's tail was wagging as soon as I got out of bed...she knows the routine. And I thought...what's so important? What's worth missing a crisp, beautiful winter morning with my girl? The answer was: nothing. And I would have missed....



...this....



...and this....



...and most of all, this.

Time is something we can never get back. Spend yours doing the things that move you...and spend it with those that you love.

The photos are simply gorgeous and I sometimes wish I could be there walking with you and Sophie - just to see it all firsthand. :-)
