Simple Beauty Day 33

Growing outside its boundaries… I think I could learn from this. ❤

Simple Beauty Day 28

I was given the opportunity to take pictures at my brother’s wedding. I had a great time and learned a lot. Before the wedding I went around and shot my sister in law’s amazing work of her decorations ❤.

Drinking my tea and working on Thursday’s video ❤.

Simple Beauty Day 20

Sweetpeas, my favorite tree, a visiting neighbor cat and black eyed Susan’s. I searched everywhere for the name of the small flowers in the bottom corner, just couldn’t find it… Do you know its name?

Simple Beauty Day 16

Whenever I feel like bursting from seams from “what am I doing and where do I go next,” I always find myself at the base of an old tree. As if to seek guidance from a grandparent far older than my own, I sit and contemplate about life. The reason for it all and the direction of where its going.

For some reason these giant plants calm me down, slow my wild thoughts and remind me to take things slow.

“Be at ease, let the wind through my leaves help you breathe. Everything’s going to be okay.”

I almost didn’t post today. Its was a hard day at work and the gloominess of the day made me want to sleep it away. But something in me desperately needed to clear my heart and soul. Then, a thought of my favorite nearby tree came to mind. So I took off my shoes and walked to my release.

I have been coming to this tree ever since I moved here. In fact, any place I have moved to I have found a special tree to share my thoughts about life with. These gentle beings are the best listeners. After about an hour of inner rambling I finally felt like I could breathe again. I still don’t know what step to take in my life, but at least now I feel like myself again. ❤

I am so grateful to have been able to live near nature all my life. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without someplace to go in nature. It has been my greatest mentor and therapist. 👣🍃💞

Postponed Post

So, I recently got a subscription with adobe premiere pro’s video editor. I was planning on posting a video that I’ve been making on my spare time today (of me dancing with my hula-hoop….) but as I was putting it together I ran into a lot of technical problems.

One was that the song I chose was too long(so I had to shorten it.) Two, was a problem with the loaded clips being extremely choppy, which made it hard to edit. And lastly, my lack of current knowledge of Premiere Pro slowed down the progress. I’ve pretty much spent 13+ hours working and researching this project…. All for 30 seconds of video…lol!

I will be working on it more this week but plan on posting the finished video in two weeks. I have to work a lot of overtime at my main job this week so this will give me more time to fine tune this little piece before posting it.

I thought I knew enough about this video editor but then again the last time I used it was back in 2013 and lets just say I’ve either forgotten a lot, lol, or they have drastically changed. I also don’t have the best laptop which is probably part of the problem too, but I will continue on because its fun to learn new things and be able to tell a story through dance 😊💞.

See you again soon!

High Expectations
