Life, Photography

Weekend

Life is actually starting to feel nice andnormal.At church we’re talking about “breathing room” or essentially a nice comfort zone between where you are and your limits ( money, time, finances, relationships, etc). I am feeling like I have breathing room! I am waking up every day and pretty much thinking “yes, this is awesome”. I have breathing room at work, I never take work home, I never work on weekends anymore, I have breathing room in my business, my breathing room in my finances is now in a happy place and growing, my time is given back to me! I have enough time to hit the gym, sleep well every night, and do all things that Iwant to have priority in my life. I have breathing room to be financially and time-wise generous to other people! That was something I missed the most over the last year and a half. I had quit volunteering, and I had to be kind of stingy! Uggggh, that’s so not me!

It’s only January! I didn’t realize how much I missed my breathing room last year. I felt like I was suffocating half the time! It’s felt amazing so far.

Anyway, enough gushing. :p This weekend was fun. I spent a lot of time with my friends Lori, Val & Sam and Jeremy’s sister Lindsay. I went bowling (like in high school!!) and birding. :)

The frost is on everything. I hadn't gotten up early enough to see it until Sunday!

The challenge of taking photos while birdwatching is that the 300mm end of your lens still isn't going to bring your subject close enough All the bird pictures in this set are heavily cropped.
