empty nest

As I walked along the railroad tracks, I saw a tree whose branches were no longer in season.

Bare and colorless.

But I couldn’t help but notice the fully exposed nest among the branches.

Twigs and leaves and a collection of things. A patchwork fabric nestled within the center of the tree.

A safe haven. A comfort zone.

But like the bird who leaves an empty nest, so must we. 

Dare to fly.

You Are Truly Appreciated

As some of you may know, not only do I have a passion for writing but I also have a passion for photography. 

For me, both of these passions have very little do with what I see, but more of what I feel. Allowing my passion to breathe through words and photos opens up the view from my window all the more to others who may relate.

With November as a reminder to us all of our many thanksgivings, I am truly thankful for all of you who have helped guide me and supported my passions. You are truly appreciated.

With that being said, I hope you enjoy a small clip from my little world. If you enjoy the video and want to see more of my photos, click here. If you should choose to click on the link, you will find this video pinned to the top of the page along with a question. If you are interested in the give-away, just answer the question on the Facebook Link and you are eligible to win the $100. No strings attached. 

Thanks again for all your continued support and encouragement.

Lots of love,

While traveling to Florida, the sun began to set and I hoped I could get a shot as the sun continued to peek through the trees.

With my husband driving and me in the passenger seat, I rolled my window down and took a shot with my iPhone.



A double reflection of the setting sun peeking through the trees.

It was one of those ‘right place, right time’ moments. 

There’s no force more powerful than seeing God work through his own creation.
