My day started off rough. we arrived to the kids’ school only to realize i forgot both their breakfast and their lunch at home. had to scramble quickly to figure out how to get them fed so that i could make it to work on time. one of my coworkers saw that i was flustered so i told her what happened. this afternoon she generously brought me a fresh pressed watermelon juice just to cheer me. her act of kindness completely turned my day around. i literally have tears of gratitude typing this. i just wanted to share because you never know how a small act of kindness can have a big impact on someone. ❤️🍉 #payitforward#kindnessmatters#whpcircles
We stopped at @bluehousefarm on the way down to the flowery yesterday and saw some animals. i’m pretty sure this one was thinking, “girl, you don’t want to fight me cause alpaca punch.” 🥊 haha #justkidding 🤣
We headed to pescadero today to pick dahlias at @thepescaderoflowery 💐 the flowers were beauties, the kids had fun, and no one was injured with the scissors 😅 they’ll be doing the #upick through october if you’re in the area!
The other day i was reading an @artifactuprising blog post on photography tips and @anyeske wrote, “when taking a photo, i often look for interesting shapes that are made by shadows. train your eye to follow shadows and your photos will stand out.” the very next day i was walking into a walgreens and noticed these shadows. had i not just read the article i doubt i would have stopped and paused. it’s so cool how something can enter your consciousness one day and materialize in physical form the next.
i love photography for engaging my creativity every single day. 📷✨ #tellon#whplight
And while i have time on my hands to #latergram . . . this pic makes me smile 🐎 we found an old-fashioned soda shop by my dad’s house in slidell with vintage rides and games. gabe liked riding the horse so much we had to come back twice! i’m sure the draw of ice cream didn’t hurt 🍨 😋
