Here around Seattle, it's beautiful, sunny and frigid as it usually gets when the clouds clear on winter days. I love warm, balmy days so I usually stay inside on days like this and just enjoy the bright sun from my windows. But, my good friend Sharyn Sowell inspired me today, as she always does, with her gorgeous blog post. I went outside with my cameras and captured the frosty crystals on my herbs, the majestic snowcapped Olympics and the sweet little chickadees in my yard. Such simple things that bring so much beauty to an ordinary day.
