Reflections Of The Day

This was taken the night of the tragedy of Newton Shooting in Newton, CT. I will never forget standing in my driveway and marveling at the beautiful sky. Wondering how can a day finish with so much beauty, but have had a horrible tragedy unfold that day. When I went to editing the photo, my feelings where to add a reflection of the trees and the sky. We have to reflect and think about how lines have blurred in our world. The stark reality of our world is with lightness, there is darkness around. With beauty there is a darker side to our world.

Photography Friday

So here is the deal. I would like to make a commitment to myself and post some of my photography every day. Knowing that I am a stay-at-home -mom with a brand new puppy, I am forget at times. I would like to give it a try. A saying that has been heard around my house recently is ” You won’t know unless you try” . Here is me trying. This Friday is all about flowers.

Please click on each photo, I have a  neat description about where I took the picture.

Mugs That Will Brighten Your Morning

Are you one of those people who just looks forward to that first cup of coffee?  I am! I can’t wait to what the beautiful light brown stream of Hazelnut pour into my cup.  The aroma rising up as if a mist from the jungle is finally lifting.  This is the cup of coffee that will kick start you!  Will give you balance to complete your day.  I find that I enjoy not only choose my flavor of the morning, but I enjoy choosing what mug my coffee is going to be in! That’s why I love to decorate mugs with my photography!

Spring is here, new beginning for all. I took this photo at Epcot’s International Flower & Garden.  When I saw this Monarch Butterfly, it inspired me feelings of new beginnings, spring celebrations, and an inner peace and happiness.  I felt that this picture was perfect for different celebrations.
