see the world

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

This morning at nine thirty, after hastily getting dressed, I stepped out into the brisk morning air. Tiny white flakes sleeted from the cloudy skies above: the first snow. My heart leapt as I saw the snowy beauties. Not a single flake is still resting on iowa's green floor, but the mere knowledge that we've finally had our first snow makes my heart wholly happy.

As I climbed into our van, gazing out the windows at the two sided autumn-winter landscape, we drove peacefully to the eye doctor's. The long awaited day had arrived for my younger sister--they day she was getting her glasses. The eye doctor's had ordered a pair of blue and black frames for her to try on, but she wasn't quite sure they were the ones she wanted.

Naturally, I was there, paired with my camera. I snapped a few photos while helping her decide which ones to choose. She, smiling, chose a black pair with flowers on the side. She couldn't possibly be cuter.

she opposes my picture taking.

She is really liking them, and the fact that she can now see clearly. What a cutie.
