Here in Chicago our New Years Eve snowstorm finally ended today - two days later. I took this photo about half way through. We now have over a foot of snow. Getting to and from work was a challenge today, but I do love the stillness that snow brings and the crunch of it underfoot.
This photo reminded me of my favorite pyrography box:

The details are exquisite and the monochromatic colors are so peaceful.
My photos don't do it justice.

2013 had more than the usual share of challenges and sadness, but I have decided instead to remember the blessings.
