Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland

Woodland Path to the Frog Pond
I've wanted to start a blog for some time now.

it was just one more thing on my to-do list that kept being
forced to the bottom of the list.

You know how that goes!

The Frog Pond
The fires that rage the hottest are the ones we attend to,
whilst the little smoldering embers lie there
virtually exstinguished until...

Snow-covered Driveway to the Cottage
Then it finally dawned on me.  Blogging will never be a raging fire in my life,
because it is not something I have to do.  It's something I simply want to do! 

And, unfortunately, the have-tos in my life seem to
always win out over the want-tos.

Beloved Well-House
But, this is a new year, and with a new year comes new opportunities—
or, as some would say, resolutions.

So, with the onset of this new year, I have resolved to do some of the
things I've been really wanting to do—such as blogging!

The Pump House
I had originally set a goal of starting my blog on 01/01/2010.
(Wow!  That date looks so futuristic to me!)

For weeks, I contemplated what to write about...
what to share with all of you...what photos to show you, etc.

I just couldn't seem to lock in on where to start.

The Log Barn
Then this frigid weather descended upon us! 
And I thought,  "That's it!  This place is quite beautiful when it snows, and I
already have some great photos from last year
that I can share."

I knew if I waited for my brain to finally register some other
start-up topic, I might just never get this
blog up and running!

The Reconstructed Barn—in Progress
I've filled these first two posts with
snowy images of the outside of my home.

And I bid you welcome to The Brambleberry Cottage—
all decked out in her winter finery.

It's truly some of her grandest attire, don't you think?!   ; )

  1. Liz - Beautiful photos. And hey, you just created some instant wall art. I would blow those up and frame them. They are just heavenly!

  2. Beautiful, I had no idea you guys got that much snow! It really is beautiful! I'm really cold I'll be all bundled up in the summer probably, too. LOL

  3. Your photos are beautiful! Isn't it amazing how a little of the fluffy white stuff can transform any landscape and make it into a winter wonderland?!

  4. You captured the beauty of all that snow. I love how it looks when it still clings to the trees. I'm in California and don't get snow but we have a mountian house that we can't get into right now because of all the snow.

  5. What wonderful photos and wonderful snow. Like a "winter wonderland." Welcome to the "world of blogs."

  6. I'm so glad that you started to blog. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Your photos of the snow are beautiful. We only had a little snow here.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  7. AWESOME photos, Liz! Just beautiful! God's handiwork at it's best! Enjoy blogging! It's addicting - but oh, the wonderful sisters you'll meet! :) Happy WW to you!

  8. Beautiful snow pictures. I will post some from last year because this year we have only had a dusting a few weeks ago.


Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to comment.
