by the sun / by the moon


T- Nikon

We were prepared and ready to watch the lunar eclipse last night. Going to bed a little earlier and setting our alarm to get up and watch. But here in Atlanta the skies were cloudy and we couldn't see this first and only eclipse of 2010. It was a disappointment. But maybe some of you saw this wondrous site that fell on the early morning hours of our winter solstice - watched as the bright white glow of the moon gave way to a coppery, luminescent orange.
Celebrate Winter!

It's Christmas evening and we are having a lull before we start cleaning up all the happy messes we've made. I wanted to stop by and wish you the merriest of Christmases. May you and your family enjoy laughter, love and peace. May you feel all the love that we feel for you. May you truly know you are blessed. Sending you much love! ~ Relyn

We missed it up here too...could only see a faded glow behind the dense clouds. But I suppose that was better than nothing!
