319/365 – From Above

For the first time since freshman year I was able to go home for thanksgiving break!!! I really can’t believe I am staying up to post this, but, I want to stay on top of things. My flight left this (well, yesterday now) morning at 6:30 am. That meant that I was up at 3:45 am to get ready, and since I went to bed around 2:00 am, I am running on just about 2 hours of sleep. And today has been packed with family and friend time. I really couldn’t be happier to be home. The snow (which we got some fresh today; what a perfect welcome home!), the cold, the company, everything is just so excellent. Other than being completely exhausted that is, but it is all worth it.

Anyways, I knew that since I was flying I wanted my 365 to be related to that. So here is a photograph I took out the window when we were just about to begin landing in Minneapolis. Definitely not the greatest picture from a plane, but, my window was dirty, my lens wasn’t liking the situation, and I didn’t want people thinking I was some girl all excited about flying and needing to document everything by taking a million pictures. And yes, I just made a ton of excuses for myself, I apologize. And yes, I am rambling because it is late and I have been awake since 4:00 am, with 2 hours of sleep.

Raven Run Hike

Here are the rest from my mini hike yesterday morning.

There was a random tomb for Archibald Moore.

So if you were to go by all of the above images you would think that all I shot yesterday were vertical pictures. This however is not true. I took lots of horizontal ones, my favorites just  happened to be vertical. But, for good measure, here is a horizontal shot.

68/365 – Purple Blooms

My wonderful boyfriend, Elliot, and I went on a walk today while his laundry was going (which probably wasn’t a good idea since my ankle has now swelled way back up). I am so lucky that he is so patient with me and doesn’t get annoyed when I stop to take pictures every five steps. I absolutely love crocuses and they are blooming all over Lexington, so I am just in heaven.

I may not be able to post for the rest of the week, tomorrow I will have an insanely busy day, and then for the weekend I will be in NC for a wedding. So, on that note, have a great weekend everyone!

Keep your eyes out for a ton more pictures that I absolutely fell in love with while on this walk!
