bowl of clams for new years dinner

I went down to the beach at sunset thinking I would be the only soul braving the 20 degrees temps. The parking lot was full. As I got out onto the beach I noticed small groups of clammers dotting the surf. Equipped with shovels, buckets, and full winter gear these clammers didn’t even seem phased. One family was digging surf clams for a New Year’s eve clam chowder. How freakin’ adorable and cool is that?

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who has ever commented, e-mailed, and or read my blog. Your support means the world to me and frankly is the only reason I keep going. To all my blogging friends who to continue to inspire me everyday. I’m so glad that somebody created this crazy blog world so we could all become friends. Here’s to health, happiness, and success in the New Year!

Jon Olsen: Winter Photographs

Reading Farm in Winter

I came across Jon Olsen’s work recently on the cover of Yankee magazine. The image above is part of a winter series of photographs shot in Vermont and New Hampshire. The images capture winter as a calm and uncluttered landscape. They make me want to jump in the car and head north. How can you hate winter when it’s this beautiful? Find out more about Jon and his photographs on his site: jonolsenphotography.com. Photographs can be purchased through Jon or through local galleries that represent his work.
