for the G+ LeapYear 2012 – Day in the life of G+ Community Photography Project.

About five minutes from my house is the Villages which has beautiful landscaping year-round. Luckily, we have gotten some good rain in the past week so things have really come back to life (including me – ha!). This photo is from a park that runs basically through the center of the town for several miles.

Therefore, I give you a leaping lizard! Ok, so he’s not exactly leaping here, but I assure you this tiny guy can!

Happy Leap Day 2012!

Lately, it seems that I’ve been missing posts from lots of people, even from those of you I have most interacted with during the last few months. Notifications have been screwy too. I noticed just now that many more posts are in my stream so I am optimistic that this bug has been fixed (it wasn’t just me). I’m sure I missed some great work and it is really hard to catch up later with so many people to check in on individually. Anyway, I am sorry and I really hope that all is resolved. Have a great weekend everyone!!

A late-ish submission (since I hadn’t done one in a while and Khrystiane Friedli inspired me) for the #windowwednesday crew, Cheryl Cooper, Jason Kowing, Simon Gelfand, Jules Hunter & +Martin OBER (hope I got all those right) 🙂

It got a bit colder in the last week here and now all of the flowers are gone. I miss them and the photo opportunities they present. Winter has basically been here for 5 total days or something, so I am not complaining. I’m just ready for spring.

I’m super happy today because plans with my best friend just solidified and I can hardly wait to see her!

It’s funny that yesterday there was a lot of talk going around about solitude vs. loneliness and I felt quite satisfied to be in my solitude, yet as soon as I found out that my friend was coming to visit I couldn’t wait to not be alone.

The idea of feeling alone even when you are around people is one that I understand fully. Some people get you and some people don’t. Those who do are so valuable and I’m happy to give up my solitude to spend time with them. I never feel lonely when I’m around people who “get me” and I’m so thankful for those friends.
