{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Inspired by SouleMama.

If you have a ‘moment’ to share, leave a link to your post in the comments for all to find and see.


This little guy followed me during a walk a while back.

I had just gotten my Canon Rebel when I took this picture.  This little guy was in New Hampshire and I had fun practicing different settings on the camera.  A lot of people are amazed to find out that my camera is ONLY a 10mpix.  I guess sometimes it’s not about how big the camera is, but how you use it.



This is Storm.  And this is the look I get all the time from her.  The “I want what you have” look. 


Jules still calls Storm “puppy”, and I keep reminding her, she’s not a puppy anymore.  But, she is our big baby.  We got her about a month after Julia moving in with me.  Which would be abut a month after we started dating. Yup, we U-Hauled it – we had to be pretty committed, we got a dog together after a month. 

I was looking through the vast amount of pictures that I have and I found these a few weeks ago.





That was on the 1st night that Storm got her new home with us.  She’s was a pain.  A cute pain.  She had a funny looking cow nose and was shy.  (That didn’t last long!)


We learned pretty quickly that she chewed through everything.  Including her cords and collars.  And so we upgraded on those pretty quickly.



She’s getting older, and so are we.  She gauges the length of our relationship, so this year she’ll be ten.  She still has moments of “Puppy Like Activity”.  Like diving in head first into a snow bank this week and pulling us along on her extra long leash all summer long and smelling everything! 


I guess she’s still kinna cute.
