“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
That’s a line from one of my all-time favorite movies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and even though the tale of Ferris’ epic day of playing hooky is just a story, there’s a lot of truth in that line.
Life does move fast and it’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day drag. We’re preoccupied by all that we have to do, by our jobs and our families, and by social media. It’s easy to forget to look around and just be in the moment. That’s why I’m partnering with Amanda at Dog Mom Days for Appreciate the Moments, a monthly themed photo challenge.
It’s simple: just one photo each month based on that month’s theme. Photos can include your pet… or not. It’s up to you.
That said, here’s my photo for winter.
Early to mid-December in central Indiana was incredibly mild. I was still occasionally using the AC in my car, opening the windows in my house, and wearing capris and t-shirts. We still had patio furniture on our deck. I was clearly in denial of what was bound to happen sooner or later: snow, and lots of it. But at least it was Christmas Eve, and if I have to endure a snowstorm, I’m okay with it at Christmastime.
