I think You Capture is addicting because when the snow started, the first thing I thought was, "This is going to be GREAT for the You Capture theme this week!" True story. I grabbed my camera and tried getting some shots at night and then first thing the next morning - all while freezing my fingers off and running inside to wrap them around a hot mug of coffee. Then we had an ice storm last night and I got really excited! I've found that once you get a taste of photograpy for fun, you can't stop. It's still a winter wonderland outside my window as I write this and I. Am. In. Love. December snows are the best.

I was also totally excited about the outside theme. You Capture junkies we have become :)ReplyDelete
I really like your shot close to the swing with the garland up the column...and the garland on the fence. Wonderfully framed.
You guys have done such a nice job decorating your place. Gotta say I'm a bit jealous cause it feels we still have so much to buy or make. But I guess it really takes years to get all the Christmas stuff just the way you want it!
What great shots!!ReplyDelete
You Capture is definitely addictive. I love the ice shots!ReplyDelete
I really, really like the icy twig shots. But I LOVE the fencepost with lit garland. And the porch swing. It may be icy/snowy, but with those two pics you somehow also managed to capture WARMTH. Nice work!ReplyDelete

There is no snowy goodness here so I was hesitant about outside prospects but I went for it anyway.
You did add some nice new ones with the ice! Really like the last one...and the first one with the twigs and ice :)ReplyDelete

Hi Carrie ~ I'm so glad you found me at Treasured Chapters/Growing Up MK! I have so enjoyed reading your whole Story of Us!! Love your story! Mine is a little bit similar - I met my husband at missionary boarding school when I was in 3rd grade and he in 5th. Didn't date until college, though. Isn't it fun being married to your best friend and to someone you've known for so long?ReplyDelete
Oh, and about this post: :) I love your shots, especially the one of the snow on the porch swing.
Beautiful photos! I'm not sure which I love more - the holiday decorations, or the ice crystal drips - maybe the holiday greenery with the ice crystal drips as in the last pic. Really, nice job!ReplyDelete

Love the ice on the berries!ReplyDelete
soo pretty pretty! If I'm not mistaken the background on your blog is one of them as well? I love it!ReplyDelete
I could not agree more! These pictures are so beautiful. Definitely my favorites of your You Captures yet. I think what I love most is that you've captured the stillness of a snowy/icy morning so perfectly. Nice work!!ReplyDelete
