I took this picture in memory of last year’s blizzard. We had another huge snow story this February, and I wanted to illustrate how things can change over a year. Last year, we had this beautiful focal point in our yard and this year it is gone. The view is still just as amazing, but it is also different. The tree being cut down mirrors the changes in my family’s life: our daughter is going to college, our son is going to be in high school, and I have finally started putting my pictures on a website and on Etsy. Lots of change and growth. I will miss that tree, just as I will miss and cherish past memories, but I am also excited for what the future holds.
