Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends. My first experience with this day was in Whistler back in the early 1990's. It was a little nuts and I'm sure its only increased 10 times over. I love that beautiful country and miss my friends there. The shots below were from my trip there in September 2011. I had spent the day walking around Sydney by myself and just as I was about to head back to Manly the setting sun hit the opera house. With the dramatic dark skies it made for some beautiful photos.

After we put down our 18 year old furry friend last year my husband and I decided we needed to get out of town for a few days. We got in the car and headed for the border. We spent a few days in Seattle being tourists which we haven't done in ages. Of course we headed to the the Pike Place Market, checked out the second hand stores, the amazing EMP Museum and the stunning Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass. I knew Chihuly was famous for his sculptures but he has also some really interesting collections housed in the cafe.

In my long list of photos yet to blog these were ones I has planned to post because Christmas. In the fall I was in Squamish to shoot the lovely Andrew family portraits and had a few spare minutes to shoot in her house workshop where she makes clothing and accessories for infants, toddlers and children. If you like to support local businesses and find unique gifts "Chubby Love" is worth checking out on Etsy.

Today is my father's 69th birthday. It makes me so very very happy to say those words. If you have followed my blog that last couple years you know how much my father means to me and how grateful I am every day that he is in my life. On the weekend I got together with my family to celebrate and as always my nieces were there to entertain and make everyone smile. My parents also have some gorgeous mountain views from their house and they were in all their glory during my visit.
