Today I woke up to a winter wonderland sparkly daydream. The snow day was too perfect not to take pictures.
So I decided to play around with shooting into the sun. What it produced was a beautiful lens glare…and in some cases it almost looked like fire! Usually shooting into the sun produces silhouettes.

We baked and frosted chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and my brother served as our “taste tester” (such a sacrifice). We drank water in our tea… Continue reading Tea Time
