Gratitude Week: Tuesday

This week I am joining Michelle’s annual Gratitude Week 2015.

Today Michelle asks:

Can you feel the wonder of something today? What blows you away?
And how does that wonder make you feel?

I always get blown away by Mother Nature.  I need that around me.  I need the trees & flowers, birds singing, water gurgling or waves crashing… I love the sunrise & sunset.  I love how the light changes with the seasons.  I can’t count how many times I look out in my yard and just say, “wow”!!!

This mostly makes me feel calm.  I can breath.  I also feel a deep inner warmth, joy, peace…I’m so happy that I was there to witness this beauty.

Here is my ‘wow’ moment from last night’s drive home:


And the same spot this morning, on the way to work:


I also love those ‘wow’ moments when I think I have messed up a photo…moving, wrong settings…and it turns out pretty amazing:

Until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.

  1. I participated in gratitude week with Michelle a while back! It was such a wonderful week. I LOVE your banner and the last image so much, it’s gorgeous. All these images are just stunning. Again, I want to step into the image.
