beautiful rain…

we finally got rain here, so I spent some time outside in between rainfalls and did an unplanned photo session.

I LOVE the rain – every looks beautiful after a rainfall…

winter around here…

i’ve been seeing SO many beautiful photos all over instagram and facebook of snow storms and snowy landscapes! i’m a bit jealous, since we never get snow around here – i don’t remember it ever snowing in my lifetime.

i was outside the other day checking out the cactus plants, when i got the idea for this blog post. so here i am sharing OUR winter here in sunny California – enjoy!
