Grandfather Mountain

What’s a better way to spend the day after Thanksgiving than to have some quality time with family. We went on a day trip to the mountains and although the way up was very foggy, it cleared up just in time for us to enjoy the magnificent scenery. I hope you enjoy the photos as…

Hummingbird

Several weeks ago, I waited outside in the cold to capture this tiny and yet beautiful creature. For almost an hour, I played catch with him. For some reason, he seems to know when I am distracted with something else and not looking. What else is there for me to do, but….to play along. Allow…

{Of Self Love & Grieving}

Experts say that we should let ourselves grieve. And that the best way to help others that are hurting or grieving is to acknowledge their pains and sadness. No need for exchange of words, but just to be there even in silence helps someone who is hurting or grieving more than telling them to “get…

Riding Through Life

Nothing is ever too late. I never learned how to bike. My brothers didn’t get their first bike until they were in high school. I tried learning. But then, I was told that biking can take away a girl’s virginity and you know how important that was back then? So I quit. That.. and my…

The Day I Finally Grew Up

“I always thought I was a grown-up. It turned out, being a grown-up requires more than my thoughts that I am one…” I wish I could tell you exactly when that was….or what brought about the change. One day, I just woke up feeling like a different person. It’s that change that kind of slaps…

Women Empowering Women

“Us women, need to see our worth without the approval of anyone. Our worth is not measurable by the clothes we wear, the shape of our body, how beautiful we are or what others think of us. Know your worth and the rest of the world will.” If I asked you right now, how much…

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…

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…

New Kind of Brave

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 Have you ever heard of “word prompt”? It is where you have a certain word for the new year. I have never done it nor even tried. Tonight, as I was browsing online, I saw a post about it. And I clicked on…
