  1. Donna,

    You really should publish a book of your amazing photography and your favorite quotes. You are like a Quote Ninja! I think that Mabie quote is my favorite of the year. A conspiracy of love...yes!

    That last photo makes me shiver. And hear the crunch of frozen snow. It is gorgeous.

    Merry Saturday before Christmas all!


  2. Thank you Di! You are a dear.

  3. I absolutely agree with Di.

    I just returned home a bit ago and sat down, after hanging out with my favorite 3 year old at his house, while his Mom, Dad and Sister went and saw "Frozen".

    We had a lot of fun, but I needed some Serenity Now, to quote you, Donna!

    This post is lovely and inspiring and comforting all at once. thank you.

  4. love you Donna. your images, your choice of words... always touch me! xoxo

  5. They're all just breathtaking! The photos and the quote. Bless you for sharing.
    Christmas love,

    This season is blessed and so are we by you and all that you do here. Again, I am so thankful for the woman who encouraged you to find your calling encouraging others. I agree with Di and Susan…a book with your photos and the quotes you find to go with them would be fantastic. I especially like the last photo which at first made me think of cotton fields during harvest, but I quickly realized it was snow. Brilliant indeed! love and prayers, jep

    1. I agree! I would totally buy that book! Between faces and seasons, it would be stunning!

  12. Hi Donna. I just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas from a blog friend up here in chilly Canada. I love your blog and find myself checking it out almost everyday. I hope to see more of you in 2014. Cheers.
