The silent night drifts all away

To all of my wonderful Flickr friends who have filled my world with the most beautiful images over the last couple of years, I wish you all a wonderful Holiday season!

 

I haven't been around much lately because we've all been sick with colds! Watching my wee one sniffle and cough is not fun, but she's on the mend. It's our first Christmas with her, and we feel so blessed!

 

***Since you're all loving this photo so much, I thought I'd share the experience behind it. My hubby and I took a morning drive a few weeks ago, and were driving around in the hills a few miles away. In the morning light, I saw a silver tree. A sparkling SILVER tree. It took my breath away. I yelled "stop!" as I often do when we're out driving around, and jumped out of the car and walked through some mud to get to the tree. It was some sort of evergreen/fir tree, covered, and I mean covered, in drops of dew. I'll never forget that moment, because I've never seen anything like it before. The drops sparkled like little jewels all over it. We've gone back a few times since then, and there's been a little bit of dew, but nothing like that first day that I saw it. It was a magical moment.
