It’s a rainy day here in Ann Arbor & I passed by this restaurant, just like I do every day on the way to work, & enjoyed the bright graffiti on the wall – a little color to brighten up this dreary day!

It’s all so quiet

Posted in Val by valerie on March 6, 2011

We had “light snow” here yesterday for most of the afternoon/evening. The grass, which was just starting to peek through the patches of melting snow, is now covered again in a blanket of white. Last night, when I took our dog, Melody, for a walk I was reminded again of why I do love the fresh-fallen snow…everything was so quiet & still; when the gusts of wind blew, the snow moved & drifted like sand on a beach. It changes the way the world looks & does something really magical with the light, I think. It’s all so still…

The view from here

This is what it looks like outside my office window now, but I know spring is coming…eventually…& I’m already picturing what this tree will look like then!

-2° = love

Posted in Val by valerie on March 1, 2011

-2° = love… That was one option for the name of this blog, since Mo & Adrian kindly flew up from Vegas to see us in Ann Arbor when we recently celebrated our 10th anniversary; they left their warm, pleasant weather to come to this deep freeze we call home.

Mo & I had been chatting about being creative, we both love taking photos, I was inspired by this book a friend recently loaned me, & so it begins… I think it will be interesting to see how the world looks through our eyes, both Midwest & Southwest or wherever we may find ourselves.
