I’m revamping Unfolding the Heart and am posting in the blog every Sunday starting this week. This Sunday’s post will dive more into the “Give Love Project” going on now until the 23rd of July.
With the holidays quickly approaching , I have decided to take a short break and will begin again on the 3rd of January. May you all have a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year! ^_^ ❤
Persicaria Maculosa ~ I have no idea how to pronounce this plant, lol. But it was pretty ❤ 😊.
Grateful of another refreshing day, a red clover plie’s (pled-ays) in the summer rain. ❤
*I can’t believe I’ve been posting everyday for a month now! I was debating on ending this series but after today’s picture, I feel renewed again 😉. So, I think I’ll continue this for another month! Yay! 💞 See you all tomorrow!
I came across a few poke berry bushes and the yellow flowers. I’m not sure what they are called though, some of the plants I take pictures of can’t be identified through the PlantSnap app.
After I took pictures of the poke berry bushes I saw this little guy hanging out on a leaf. ❤ today turned out to be a good day!
Today I went to a free event and kayaked up a river. Afterwards I stopped to take a few pictures of downtown Battle Creek. One of the pictures turned our really grainy on my phone so I added it to my PICSART app and made it look more like a painting. Such a wonderful day… really ❤.
I was going to post something else today but I wanted to share my experience of this past weeks new daily series “Simple Beauty.” I was also itching to share some of the other pics I took each day.
Can you see what the sun’s rays in the top left picture form? ❤ I couldn’t believe it!
During this nature walk, I was particularly drawn to what I call the “under glow” of leaves. That and the way light moved across and through the environment.
Each time I took part of the day to find something beautiful, I did. In the top left leaf here, you can see another heart that was possibly made by a bug 😉 .
My trip to the lake was immersed in the curiosity of the wind and water’s movements…(I think this is my favorite picture of Odin too 😉 ).
The remaining pictures from yesterday and today’s walk were also begging to have their debut. Light, color, shadow and composition… are truly fun to capture.
I was nervous at the creation of this new series, scared to commit to something fun, scared to commit to myself, and I think scared of not be able to find beauty in each day… But what is beauty really? An appreciation of something, gratitude towards something perhaps? All I know is that since I’ve made a commitment each day I find myself smiling more, laughing more, creating more, and overall taking notice of each passing minute in my life. These little moments each day have opened up a lot more than just my senses… and for that I am GRATEFUL ❤ !
Next week’s post will be about one the affects the daily prompts have had on me. If you want an idea of what it will be about check out a previous post from 2015, Artist Date Turned Project. See you soon!
