Pictures for my Senses

I'm going to start this by saying that I'm no photographer, but I do love pictures, so I'm so excited to look through other people's posts today.  For me, there are a few pictures that are able to bring me back to a very specific moment.  Those are my favorite.

1.  Feel - I love the feeling of sunshine on my face (even though I'm a little light sensitive and I get sunburned easily.)  This last weekend was our first in NYC and we enjoyed a full day of sunshine.  What a warm welcome.

2.  Smell - Now that I've shared my love of sunshine… I also love a rainy day.  I love a foggy day.  Not all the time or I would just move to the Pacific Northwest.  This picture has been posted on here before.  It was taken on our street in St. Paul on a quiet Saturday morning last fall.

3.  Sight - It was our 5 year anniversary this year and we celebrated with a trip to California.  The morning that we hiked around Emerald Bay was one of my favorite moments of the trip.  It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.  You can find more pictures here, but here is one of my favorites.

4.  Hear - I had one day all by myself in Big Sky last January.  I remember sitting in this mountain home and hearing silence, but at the same time, hearing all kinds of new sounds - the kind that come from a slight breeze, birds flying by and animals moving around in the woods.  It was amazing.

5.  Taste - You're probably wondering why there is a picture of a bunch of people, but this is from our most recent trip to the MN State Fair.  I'm no foodie blogger but I love food and the fair is one of those places where you eat everything possible.  Full list of food consumed can be found here.

6.  Because this is a random picture selection, I've been wanting to share at least one picture from a vacation that I did not go on.  My nieces all went to Disney for their first time in October.  It has been so fun to hear about their adventures and meeting ALL THEIR FAVORITE PRINCESSES.  This picture just makes me smile every time I see it.

So, Happy Friday.  Hope you have exciting weekend plans.  I'll be out exploring more of the city, shopping for a dining room table and jamming out to this song (because I already have to head back to the main office at work next week.)
