snow, back window

So T. and I are leaving the snow behind tomorrow morning and heading down to Zihuatanejo, Mexico for our belated honeymoon!

Our Internet access will be limited, so Penny & Spree will be on hiatus for a few days. However, I can guarantee you that I will be taking pictures until my fingers fall off {or until T. hides my camera equipment, whichever comes first} and will have oodles of fun stuff to share when I return. ;o)

Hasta luego!

anything but ordinary

As hard as Minnesota tries to make snow seem ordinary, in my eyes it is anything but.

This photo was actually taken yesterday {I know, I'm totally cheating}, during an early morning, blink-and-you'll-miss-it snow shower. The snowflakes were some of the most delicate I have ever seen, and this web-compressed image hardly does them justice. Hopefully some of you caught a few of these miniature, magical intricacies with your own eyes...but if not, rumor has it there's a 50% chance of snow on Tuesday. ;o)

a day for the blues

If you've never listened to the blues song "Stormy Monday," I highly recommend it. It was originally written and recorded by T-Bone Walker back in the 40s, but B.B. King, The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, and Eva Cassidy (to name a few) have also performed versions. Click here to read more about T-Bone and listen to the song.

Today, I couldn't get it out of my head...

the conservatory

Today I went on a "photo outing" with two dear friends of mine, and these are a few shots from the day. It was extremely rejuvenating to be in the presence of so much life...and it made me all the more excited for spring!

Tonight, after doing some laundry and putting fresh sheets on the bed, I found this little surprise snuggled up in the comforter on the floor. ;o)
