Finding Beauty Where I Am

I have felt lately that I am failing to appreciate the beauty that exists where I live. I look at pictures on other blogs of the beautiful towns and landscapes and I wish that I lived there, somewhere prettier than where I am. This is so silly, because there is plenty of beauty right around me if I just open my eyes and take it in, pause a moment to appreciate it for what it is.
So I have made it a small mission of mine to get out there and enjoy the pretty places in my town, to visit spots I know of and also to explore the lesser known corners.

On Tuesday afternoon the girls and I visited one of the community gardens. I drive through this garden quite often but cannot recall the last time I actually stopped the car, got out, and walked around.
It was a gorgeous afternoon....the girls running about laughing and shouting, the flowers, the sun.
Beauty found. Right where I am.

And I already have a few ideas on where we can go next.


  1. Yes, there is so much beauty all around us and your daughters are adorable. The flowers are so pretty in spring and how nice was to stop with your daughters to enjoy the gardens. What a fun idea to explore different areas too. Have a nice weekend.

    1. Thank you Julie. A lovely weekend to you as well.

  2. Oh my goodness, your girls are sooo cute!

  3. Definitely Beautiful!!! Those girls of yours are darling!!!
