May Flowers

Can you believe it’s May already?!? I was able to explore a new place yesterday and I am so happy for the chance to do that. Very much needed. Being able to photograph nature always has that “feel good” effect on me. Here are just some of the photos I took yesterday. Hope you enjoy!…

Of Rains, Blooms and Sun{Rises}

“When it rains, it pours. Then comes the blooms. And the best part about it, after every storm, the sun rises. And so are you.” It’s been a soaking – rainy days here in the Carolinas the past few days. To say that it’s a welcome sight to see the sun shining again is an…

What’s in your Treasure Chest?

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21 We define treasures as a quantity of valued objects or items. Anything of extraordinary amount; priceless. Does it only involve only precious jewelries, heirlooms, expensive cars, branded clothes, big houses, Louis Vuitton purses? Degrees or honorable titles perhaps? If that is the…

Wintry Air

Above is just one of the many winter photos I collected for the past two years. I know it’s been a while since my last post. I am having a difficult time right now expressing my emotions. I do have  a lot to share and tell but not finding the right words and emotions to…

Seeing Beauty

What It Takes to {Be}long?

“How far will you go to belong?” A sense of belonging whether it is at work, school, church or anywhere else is probably one of the most assuring feelings one could ever have. It is the knowing that they do not consider you any different from the rest of the crowd. That feeling of being…

Living in an Abstract World

I dream of a world where we won’t get our superiority from the uncertainty of others. Where we don’t mistake kindness for weakness. Where we co-exist and not just exist. I always tell my husband and daughter that I was born in the wrong era. I am fascinated with everything old. I enjoy listening to…
