The days immediately after the Christmas holiday are the ones I secretly look forward to the most. I do love the holidays and all they entail (family, food, relaxation.) But, to me, there's nothing I look forward to most than a clean slate. I joke (but not really) about taking the Christmas tree down on the 26th. My family gives me the death stare. As much as I look forward to putting the tree up, I really really want to take it down because I know the new year is right around the corner. Anyway, these photos were taken a few days after Christmas. Husband and I wanted to get out for some fresh air because it was a beautiful day. The light, the ice, and the water all evoke those feelings of starting new. Happy 2014!
