if the shoe fits

Hanging out with friends this afternoon, I couldn't help but notice their fine taste in footwear.

# Fun, flirty, and flowery pumps #

# Essential retro sneakers #

# Sophisticated yet understated loafers #

pockets of sunshine

I don't live in a chic city like New York or some other exotic place in Europe.  I live in suburbia.  Strip malls (and shopping malls) abound, and it is challenging to find something interesting to capture.  There are, however, little pockets of quaintness, which can allow me for a second to imagine that I am living somewhere with character and personality.

(not so) terrible twos

"It takes two to speak the truth: one to speak, and another to hear."  {Henry David Thoreau}

a day in the city

I don't often go into the city, but a few good friends and I took a trip for the day to celebrate a birthday.  The weather was sunny and mild, strange for this time of the year, but perfect for the occasion.  We spent our time eating and lingering and observing the sights and sounds.  We even rode the carousel.  I took these photos in black and white because I wanted to capture some of the moments as timeless.  I was reminded today of how time passes by so quickly, but it stressed that I should do something with this time I have and make the most of it.

2011 reflections

I've always loved taking pictures and being able to come back to them to recall the captured moments.  I started this site to share photos which reflect little things or experiences that give me joy, evoke a feeling or thought, or even help me to appreciate this God-given life.  To kick off the new year and my new site, here are a few favorite photos from 2011.  Happy New Year.
