Simple Beauty

I'm always searching the internet for beautiful photo's of flowers. It's somewhat of a new fascination, the last year or so. I having a bit of trouble finding words this morning, perhaps just tired, but it's so much more then just a pretty picture of a flower.. I think probably the fact that they inspire me to create, to mimic their colors palettes, textures, fragility. They all just amaze and move me emotionally.

Anyways. Here are a few that I found on the internet today. Most didn't have names to go with them, so let me just give thanks to the photographers who were thoughtful enough to share these on the internet with us.

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday surrounded by loved ones.

With such a tough year it's sometimes hard to remember to be thankful. So I just wanted to mention...that I am thankful for my fiance's love and for his recent accomplishments as they have brought him such joy,  for all of my family and my loved ones, for negative test results, for all of my friends here, for the health of my family, and for the people in my life who have been able to acknowledge their weakness's and being strong enough to ask for help. And with all the suffering around us these days I am thankful for what work I get, for the work my family and friends have, for a roof over my head, food on my plate, and the love in my life and heart.

I'm back :)

Yep, still alive. I had a fabulous and terrible week all in one. Terrible because of family drama happening in my life, but also fabulous because my fiance was here this week. We have been apart for 7 months. Not by choice, but like everyone today, we have to do what we have to do. Which means, he has been working in New York, while I am still here in Arizona. So after spending a week with him my spirit is refreshed, and once again I have a positive outlook on life!

Looking forward to getting back into the normal swing of things, and keeping the negative away :)
