Slice of Life Sunday: Taking Time

It's an unfortunate side effect of my life that sometimes I move too fast and fill my schedule too much to see just how fortunate I am. How full of love my life is. And how much the people I care about mean to me. This week stopped me in my tracks. And filled me with all of these emotions. So I'm taking time to just be.

The past week has been rough for a few of the people closest to me. Which means it's been a rough week for me. And nothing cheers me up like going through my travel photos. These are from my October trip to Montreal for a work conference. A few of us that went traveled a day earlier to take in more of the sights. Needless to say, Montreal is a beautiful city and much colder than I had prepared myself for! It felt like the height of our winter and the Canadian conference attendees were shrugging it off as the mild beginning of fall. Ha!

Oh the foliage!

Next to trees, my second favorite thing to photograph while traveling is signage

The inside architecture was stunning:

Slice of Life Sunday: Master Bexley

A few weeks ago I wrote about the dogs I love. We still haven't incorporated Bexley into the family pack, but it's comforting to know that he still remembers me and showers me with kisses. That's the first step, right?

Here he is mesmerized by a bug flying through the air in my sister's backyard. Happy Sunday!

December Desktop Calendar Wallpaper

I started this calendar series with a photo from my 2009 Australian vacation, so I thought it fitting to end the series with one as well. The photo below is a silhouette of baby grapes taken at Lancaster Wines vineyard located in the Swan Valley in Western Australia. Kim and I went on a the bus wine tour and this was one of our first stops. It was the most memorable because 1. I bought a bottle of wine here and more importantly 2. they had THE BEST cheese samples. I mean, seriously. Divine.

And an interesting fact to note, this photo was taken with my trusty 5-year-old Canon point and shoot digital camera.

About Kelly Tarleton

I've always been a creative person, and the one who always had a camera on-hand at a moment's notice for any occasion. Photography and graphic design dominated my life in school and I loved every minute of it. I miss that constant creative outlet and want to share more of it with my family and friends through this blog.See more of my work at my website:
