Time Out


Our days are so busy.  



Often, it is hard to take a moment and appreciate all of the small things that surround you. 



Truly, beauty is everywhere.

  17. lovely shots, looks like a very peaceful place to be-and yes we do need to be conscious of the little things-funny how they can disappear yet be right in front of us.

  18. Yes,...we do indeed need to stop and smell the roses. That's one thing I love about summer...being out and seeing all God's beauty. It's there in winter, too, of course...I'm just usually inside. :))
