My Favorite Picture of 2010(so far)
Instead of walking around picking up and sweeping up the crushed Cheerios all over my floor this afternoon, I decided to sit down and edit pictures and blog. I intended to sit here and do a general picture spew of what’s been happening lately until I looked over at my new mug full of hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows and smiled.
It was supposed to be for my mom for Christmas. Except I ordered the wrong size. And I just so happen to need a new, special mug as a result of a sad dish washing mishap last week. So, I kept it for myself and ordered another for my mom in the right size.
The picture is from almost a year ago and it seems like yesterday. It still makes me smile every time I see it. It’s such a pretty picture and I literally have no clue how I got the shot except that the snow was a very key player. It was taken before I ever even decided to take my camera out of the auto mode and start to learn something about my favorite material possession. It was taken in the doorway of the garage while I ran out to hand her hot chocolate and snapped a picture. And I came inside to look through what I had taken and gasped.
So, now I have a new mug to commemorate my favorite picture of the year. I wouldn’t have otherwise bought it, but I’m glad now to look at her sweet red cheeks and her snow-covered mittens each time I sit down to get cozy with some tea or coffee or hot chocolate. The colors came out strange on the mug, but c’est la vie.
