Last December Andy and I celebrated our five year (marriage) anniversary. It was blissful, as we spent the weekend in Door County, Wisconsin at his parent's condo. (Thanks Ray and Mary!) Going to DC in the winter is one of my favorite things to do. The attraction to Door County is it's summer fun; fish boils, ice cream, and sunset viewing. So I think winter time is over looked, but it offers it's own set of fun. And has less tourists.
While we were up there, we spent the afternoon painting some pottery at one of my top spots in DC, Hand's On Art Studio. Yes, Andy painted pottery, no, I didn't force him. After painting, and taking a scenic drive, we drove along the waterfront of Ephram just as the sun was ready to dip below the tree line of Peninsula State Park. We pulled over, Andy got the camera ready, and I pulled out my iPhone and snapped a quick shot. The camera ended up being a bit too slow, due to the freezing cold temps, but my phone ended up catching one magnificent sunset.
Feeling proud of my capture, I posted it to Facebook and Instagram (like everyone these days), and went on my way. Later, I noticed that Neville Public Museum in Green Bay was having a photo contest for a Winter in Wisconsin theme. I tagged my photo was the appropriate tag and thought nothing more of it, until last week. I got a notification that my DC photo was picked to be featured in their Winter in Wisconsin exhibit.
My photograph is in a museum! Say whhaaaattt? I'm beyond honored and excited to be featured along with many others who have submitted their photos. It's great to be living in a state that gives up different seasons, a reason to be outside and take in our beautiful state full of nature and awe.
If you are one of my two readers, happen to be in Wisconsin, somewhere near Green Bay, check out Neville Public Museum and see the Winter in Wisconsin exhibit!
