Sunday Stills - Holiday Lights & Decorations

I have been a bit neglectful of this blog lately, and am going to try harder in the New Year!
For my last Sunday Stills of the year, I've joined in with some holiday lights from our tree.
The last three photos were taken last year.

Sunday Stills - Happiness is....

I know, I'm posting this on a Monday - I'm really bad at keeping up with everything at the moment - but didn't want to miss out on this one.
This week was an easy task and although I haven't had a chance to see what everyone else has posted for Sunday Stills, I am betting there will be lots of photos of family and loved ones. Me too! I love my boys more than anything and just knowing that they are safe and well is.... happiness. I've also included a few other things that make me happy.

angel of the north
No, not the Angel of the North, but my two sons - they are very shy and prefer not to be plastered on my blog, but they are there if you look close enough!

Flowers and nature

Sunshine - puts everyone in a good mood

Obergurgle ski slope
One of my favourite things is snow, I only wish we got more than a light dusting in the winter. At least I have my holiday memories!

Banoffee Cupcakes 3322 R
And lastly, my love of food and photography makes me happy!

Took a walk around the garden for signs of Autumn. There's a nip in the air, the leaves are changing colour and the apples are falling - we're definitely headed into Autumn in my part of the world.
For more signs of Autumn (or Fall), check out the rest of the entries in this week's Sunday Stills.

Views from Pompeii

Following on from a photo that I posted for Sunday Stills, here are a few more from the beautiful excavated town of Pompeii.
Pompeii is an enormous place, the size of a large town - I'd have to find the guide book to give accurate details of each photo.
