there are a few main factors contributing to why i have a ton of photos this week. and, i have a ton!

to begin with, last week was g-o-r-g-eous (most of the week, anyway). that kind of beautiful time when you know without a doubt that you will not be stuck in narnia forever. and it is as if you can feel the earth breathing beneath your feet… waking up from its winter slumber. literally, there was something in the air last week – a lightness, a hint of life. and the trees and plants and flowers and grass, you can’t see anything happening, but you can feel it. and, oh how i felt it this past week. spring will arrive! and i celebrated that knowledge by snapping photos of all of the blue skies, mountains, trees, and happy people that i could.

now, speaking of people, as i’ve said in previous posts this past week, we had guests from germany with us for about 5 days – our first guests from across the ocean! and, when you’re playing tour guide and exploring the place where you live with good friends, you tend to take lots of photos. yep. i sure did that.

so, all that said, i have a lot to share with you today because i had tons of beautiful, jaw-dropping, deep breathing moments. and i give thanks for every single one of them.
