This Beautiful Moment; Windowsill View Edition and Snapshot Summary November 29- December 4 {Week 13}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments at SouleMama for all to find and see. Have a wonderful weekend!
