So I know this photo probably makes zero sense to those of you who are actually still around and still reading this. I have gotten far behind on posts and I have to be honest, I have not been taking photos every day like I should. That being said it has been incredibly busy lately with school, work, and trying to help Mom move to a new house. But I promise I will do better and I will finish this challenge. Some of the posts will be using old photos. But back to this photo, which is a year old, out of place and not my best. When I saw this photo tonight it meant a lot to me. This tree was a little pine tree that me and Abbie bought for Mom on Mother’s day for the house, because she so badly wanted a pine tree. One day it would get big enough to decorate. Well, it is still little but that year she decorated it and it looked really pretty, though small, out in the yard covered in snow. This tree made the house even more of a home. Today we moved out of that house, or at least started to, and moved elsewhere. And it was kinda hard. That place was our home for some six years or so. It was beautiful and it was full of so many memories, like this little tree. And it was not easy packing things up and moving out. But nothing is permanent in this life and things change. We move on and hold the memories of past homes with us. And this home was a great one.
A beautiful evening on the patio with family & friends. I really enjoy evenings such as these. Being outside with the fresh air, sun shining, summer breeze wrapping around my bare skin. The sun sets behind me while I enjoy the smiles of those in front of me. I can’t help but be distracted by this, like so many of us during trials of our life. We cannot focus on what’s behind us when we have endless possibilities in front of us. Moments that offer happiness and satisfaction.
Remember the sun will rise tomorrow offering new opportunities and the breeze will gently blow the pain away that lingers from second & third chances.
When the sun sets and turns the sky into a burning and quickly changing splash of color, all the focus is to the west. All eyes are on the sun as it falls from the heavens, setting the sky on fire. Everyone forgets to look behind. Just turn around and you will see a whole different beauty. The clouds being lit by the sun. The colors are softer, more muted. They are humble and quiet. Every evening they show their colors, never to be noticed. Backs are turned on them. A waste of beauty. Just turn around. There’s a whole other show going on.

My best friend. My favorite tracks. My love for photography. Slight breeze. Suns shining. Clearing my head before a night at work indoors. I love her so much. She can make any situation or day better and she’s always one step behind me. As long as she can see me she is fine, otherwise she’s uneasy not able to see the trouble her mom is about to get in 😉 My world. My love. My happiness. Thanks for always being there. I love you Lills!
