blogging it forward

I’m very excited to be a part of Blog it Forward. The idea came from the Victoria as a way of sharing love and inspiration with fellow bloggers. Nancy has passed the torch on to me and so it is my turn to share with you what inspires me.

I love my magical little camera(s). Taking pictures of the world around me is eye-opening. My camera is teaching me to see beauty everywhere.

::music::

I find so much inspiration in music. It calms me down, lifts me up, motivates me when I’m feeling lazy and smoothes my soul when weary. Right now I’m loving:
Devotchka
The National
Coeur de Pirate

::evening::

My favorite time of day is probably about an hour before the sun sets when everything is winding down for the day. When the whole world mellows and gets a little quieter and everything is tinged with gold. That’s when I can think, walk, sit outside and find some stillness.

::travel::

I love to be going somewhere. Honestly I think I get inspired just by packing my bags. Whether I’m going to Utah or London or Minnesota or Mexico it’s always an adventure and a change of pace. I love the anticipation of leaving my daily life behind, even if it’s only for a weekend. I hope to travel a lot this year – as much as possible.

::words::

I am a collector of words. I have notebooks full of quotes, stories, and poems that have at one time or another been an meaningful to me.

::faith::

I can’t tell you what my faith does for me. I don’t know enough words to tell you how it restores my soul and strengthens my heart. It makes me a better person, a better friend, a better daughter. I love my Heavenly Father so. The knowledge that I am his daughter and that is love for me is unconditional a blessing I don’t think I could live without.

Tomorrow please be sure to check out Polka Dot Robot.

  1. I love that photo of the sheet music– I find musical notation so inspiring. Coeur de Pirate is one of my favourites, my sister got a chance to see her in Quebec last year and I am insanely jealous. Great blog-it-forward!

i'd love to hear from you
