Reason To Smile

My mother introducing Mowgli to Millie..
who for the first three days tried to kill Mowgli.
Seeing old friends and taking silly pictures.
Mowgli's hatred for snow.
Tas the cat who's hatred for Mowgli kept him from moving around with us.. 
(They are getting along better now.)
Mozzarella Caprasi

Big Kitties and Little Sisters
 All the beautiful mountains.
The tree I used to talk to most when I was little.
The beauties that still held on after the big storm.
 Mowgli's new beard.

Tree tops

Taking fun self portraits.
Mowgli has another reason to hate winter
Beautiful gift from my dad.

No matter how dark the times.. there is always a reason to smile.. 
In my case, there are plenty of reasons.

 Thank you to everyone who left me a sweet comment or wrote me an encouraging email... 
Your kind words have been one of  my biggest reasons to smile.

  16. Well hello there. This is random. Really random (or not?). I was trying to figure out how Pay Pal worked so that I could purchse the elephant totem necklace for a friend (she will LOVE it). Then I noticed you live in Provo and have a blog.

    I live in Salt Lake City. Your pictures are beautiful. And I thought I would say hello :)
