sunday






















are these the sweetest most tiniest apples you've ever seen? the smallest hardly larger than a coin.




today i watched a little yellow finch out the window, knit for upcoming birthdays and christmas (can you see the love going in?), walked in the marsh with my husband and drew a name for the book giveaway.



congratulations sally anne! please let me know if you'd like me to send it off now or if you'd rather wait and i'll try to get it autographed for you on december 3rd.



thank you everyone for playing along. wasn't it fun? if only i had a book to send to each and everyone of you.




wishing you a beauty full week ahead.

  4. lori, there is something about the way you see even the simplest things that feels sacred. there is such warmth and reverence in these pictures. gentleness.

    some day i would like to walk beside you with our cameras clicking away. you are a wonderful photographer--top notch. i couldn't hold a candle to you, but boy would i like to see what you see!

    love you, lori

  6. So many beautiful things to smile at, Lori. I loved ALL your images, but what sticks in my mind was that beautiful Pink and White 'hat' you drew Sally Anne's name out of. So,so pretty.

    Congratulations to Sally Anne!

    Big love to Lori Ann!xx♥

  8. What a wonderful day. When we picked apples for my parents we had a whole bucket of little tiny baby apples that we kept for the little people to eat. Perfect for their little hands and they love them.
    Congrats Sally Anne!

    Glad you had such a nice Sunday! XXOO Lori

    Yes, that's true, for the most part dear Renee. I've long ago made peace with it, but since he is my children's father, he'll always be in the picture. Now if my kids could only make their peace too. bless you and your love.
