This year I am determined to do better. I do live in New England, after all. So over the weekend my fiance Brent and I went for a walk in the woods of a nearby town. I had been grumpy all day and I frankly did not want to go, but Brent insisted. And it was lovely. We had just had an ice storm and in the shadow of the forest nothing had melted off the flowers and trees yet. And the light was soft and blue and beautiful. After a little while I forgot about being freezing cold and just started to enjoy walking around with Brent (he is pretty great) and taking pictures.
