for you.

as we were driving home from the laundromat, a car full of four loads of laundry + a dear {friend}, i was inspired by the snowflakes falling onto our car & melting as they reached the windows, the lights of cars zooming past us, and the white blanket of snow covering the road ahead. i was inspired by {shari's} {photos} of blur, light & winter whites. so, i snapped a few myself.
i am amazed at the inspiration that fills my screen each morning as i take a couple of minutes to read some of my {favorite} {blogs} & see photos from {flickr} {friends}... beauty at my fingertips every moment of the day. it is a real delight to be a part of this tiny community of bloggers. you guys are awesome & a true blessing to my life. just wanted you to know that...

in other news, i am looking for a new job. i am so thankful to have my job, working at an independently-owned stationery store in downtown, but luke & i are looking toward the future. i have applied to a handful of montessori schools & to the public library, both places that would serve as great experience for my degree & future career. until then, my boss has offered to pay me to continue to do our window displays at the store. my favorite thing to do! so, i am really excited & very anxious for the future.

i hope you all have a wonderful day. lets notice the small delights of today & be thankful.

Natalie- I keep wondering if you know my friend Stephanie. You are quite a bit younger than she is but she seems to be in a similar "circle." She works at the public library and at Poppy. (Short-ish, curly-ish dark hair, sweet as can be.)

Anyway- lovely photos. Take care.

These photos really capture the mid-afternoon, early night feeling of winter in Missouri. How did the ridiculous cheetah ones turn out, haha?
