A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!


A New Beauty in Lassen County

Day 2 of a dusting of snow. A few minutes ago I went across the street into the woods to take my picture(s) for the day and as I was looking along the horizon and the mountains I started thinking I will ALWAYS have those pictures to fall back on all winter.
I asked myself, "Self, what is out here today that probably won't be seen the rest of the winter due to being covered with snow?" These pictures are what I answered myself with. In fact I am rather proud of my pictures today. Not in the pictures themselves but in my own thought process of the how's and why's of doing so. Gosh I love what I am learning for myself through this blog.

So here are the pictures

The ground being a good place to start. One decent snowfall and I will not see anything peeking out of it till a good spring thaw.

Out of the four I am going to post here today, I like this one best.
I see simple, ya know?

My Raspberry bush still has red leaves on it, and the contrast of red and white and green is beautiful

And it just so happens to be the major colors of this holiday season. I hope I can be lucky like this the rest of the winter, but I sort of doubt it. I will however try.

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
