She celebrated the gifts of spring

“She celebrated the gifts of spring.” ~Jennifer
 
For months, I felt like spring would never come.  The darkness of winter persisted, as did my morning sickness.  March and April came and went, but the skies remained cold and dark. 
So did I. 
 
Then May arrived.  
I’m not sure if it was the sun finally shining, the flowers blooming, or my hormones beginning to stabilize, but I started to feel some relief at last.  I figured it was high time to pull out the pearls and celebrate a little!
 
Sometimes I can’t see all the goodness that is right in front of me.  That’s one of the reasons I love photography so much: it gets me out of my head.  Photography grounds me and brings me back to the present.  There truly is so much to celebrate when I stop and appreciate the beauty around me. 
 
Whether it’s enjoying a cup of tea, a bouquet of flowers, a quiet moment in the garden, or some other simple pleasure, I hope you find a way to celebrate today.

  4. I am so happy to know you feel better.
    I completely agree with you, my photography expresses what I can not with words.
    Seems like the words flow and follow after I shoot the shot.

    I celebrate YOU and the little life growing inside of YOU

    • You are so right, Deb. That is exactly it! First the shot, then the words. It seems I have to get out of my head before I can get into it again.
      Thank you for always being there, with such love and support.
      Xoxo.
