In Search of Beauty

I’ve dreamt of this in my mind, longed for it in my heart and felt it from the depths of my soul for some time. At Christmas time the new camera I got was a gift of creativity. I’ve been waiting for Spring to show her colors so I could capture each one. And then recently my sweet soul friend Cat felt and saw my dream: spending an afternoon in the glorious grace of nature, seeking out the bounty she brings with the arrival of spring. It was indeed, like being a little girl again…stirring up some of my most favorite memories of being outside and at one with Nature. Synchronicity stepped in too, because just yesterday morning I turned back to the start of my journal to read a childhood memory I’d written….all about playing outside on the rocks, our swingset and in the grassy yard with my big sister. 

So I’m elated to share the beauty that greeted me on every corner and with nearly every step. The squirrels even played along a bit! When I look at these images, I feel something stir deep within myself. I can’t help but smile. We are blessed to be surrounded by so much grace. And yet, with the busy-ness of our days, we miss it. Today, I’m savoring it. xo

For you, Cat….

Loved these beautiful purple pansies. Something about how the colors are woven together….

And these yellow were right beside them. The sun was beginning to set….

Met a new friend….he was here as I began and also as I headed back home….

Who wanted to play Hide & Seek!

One of the last blossoms to open on this tree….perhaps she was waiting for me….

Streaming sunlight felt like Angel dust….

A little sun worship? No worries for my little friend….

Robins everywhere….singing….looking for nest materials…

This might be my favorite….stunningly beautiful….Mother Nature’s inspired art….

Spring in Her glory….

So naturally She creates Her beauty…..

Even the Pine trees join spring’s birthing process….

Life & Abundance present everywhere….how do we miss it?

Sweet Adieu my friend….

As the sun continues to set…..Grace shining through the trees….

Our guide for the journey. I realized just now – hers was the first photo I took as I began….and one of the last before going back into the house.
