We see things as we are. . .

This girl isn't my favorite but I was happy with her eyes so I thought I'd zoom in on the part that I liked. . . 
We have been having crazy weather in KY this year.  My boys only had school one day this week which added 4 snow days to the 5 they already accumulated this year!!  We've been battling ice/snow.  Yesterday I took this picture on the way home from the high school.  The sun was out and the ice was gorgeous - It still coats everything!
The road that was clear was no longer clear this AM.  We got another couple of inches overnight.

She does have great eyes. And I like the quote.

This seems to be the never-ending winter for most of the country. Ice always looks so beautiful when it covers the trees but it's so destructive. I experienced enough of it when I was younger.

I love the loose lines you have used to shade her! Great face! Love the snow (but not when you have to travel through it!) :)

I know it's so so cold, but coming from the desert, it looks gorgeous there in the snow! Love your face too - you cracked me up about focusing in on what you love - I totally do that too ;) xoxo
