christmas memories ~ wild and sweet montana

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Photography 7 Comments

hello!  our christmas ~ full of all things bright and beautiful, with the love of God and family making it always extra magical and sweet… 

we headed out to the swan ranch once again, and enjoyed a treasured day among friends and family. although the snow storm made things “interesting” {always!} it was breathtaking, per usual amazing creation by God’s hand…

i’ve been enjoying being able to get out and about and take a few photos… especially when the frost hit a few days ago, and of course, always a treasure for me to get out to the ranch and take a few photos.

i made a first-time ever new appetizer, in the pretty deliciousness of a handmade pomegranate cheese ball, and it was fabulous!  {i got the recipe from pinterest ya know}.  totally worth it, and we loved it enough, i think it may become a new traditional favorite!

and a new baby this year to the swan family, with a bit of a cowboy flair and ride on his new pony!  he’s only four months old, but of course, he commands quite a bit of attention {and a photographer, too!!}

brian and i headed west to visit family in washington, and battered down and through a few more snowy storms, and many icy snowpacked roads, but it was a good trip, and we enjoyed our trip together tremendously.

so … i’ve compiled a bit of a photo journal of our christmas days together {and in all kinds of montana weather!}…  

i hope and pray your days were all wonder memorable, quiet, wild, and sweet and filled with treasures of time with those you love.

i love the old cottonwoods against the dramatic beauty of the evening’s setting sun on the mountain peaks

brian “breaking the trail” for his photographer wife!  what a guy!! xo 

not a bad view of the rocky mountain front through the car window!
our lovely and dramatic roger’s pass of montana.  temperature?  -6 with a windchill of about -25 i’m guessing.
it was rockin!

a bit of a stretch break at lookout pass
happy new year!
be blessed each and every day.
with much love,
xo
