Someone’s got a new pair of Girly Mitts to help keep her warm and toasty during our long Minnesota winter.
The other morning, we awoke to our world covered in this. It’s called hoar frost and it doesn’t happen very often, so when it does, I always run out with a camera. I find it fascinating.
It just makes everything look like it’s part of a winter wonderland scene from a movie. It’s just beautiful. It almost makes living in Minnesota worth it, but we still while away the hours looking at homes in Florida online on many cold winter nights. #idreamofFlorida
I decided on my 365 project. I’ve been taking pictures every day featuring gold, for Childhood Cancer Awareness. I’ve been posting them on Instagram with the hashtag #365daysofgold. I was inspired by the story of the man who took the pictures in the pink tutu in support of his wife as she endured treatment for breast cancer. I love what he did, and I don’t begrudge the Breast Cancer Awareness crowd anything, but I think everyone and their neighbor knows what that pink stands for. I meet people all the time who have no idea that gold is the color for Childhood Cancer Awareness. I meet people all the time who have no idea that in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease — more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.
