WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FAMILY

Image

When seeing the weekly photo challenge, I immediately went looking for a family photo. I take pictures on a weekly basis, journaling my life and the lives of my loved ones with pictures. I would love to see old photos of my parents, grandparents, etc. but I know that I never, ever will. Because of this, and knowing how important it is to be able to look back and actually see where your family came from, I take shot after shot of every event. I do this so that one day, my children can actually look back at the memories we created and pass them on to their children.

The photo above was taken when we all went to see a Disney movie with my granddaughter. As usual, I’m behind the camera but pictured are my children, granddaughter and my mother. We normally run on different schedules, and rarely all go to the movies, and a Disney movie? Nah, that does not happen, but for our little one, we changed it all just to be there and we had a great time!

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my photo.

Peace and Love,

Lisa

Weekly Photo Challenge – BEGINNING

This weeks photo challenge is to show a picture that defines “beginning” to me.

I love the ocean and am there every chance that I get. When time allows, I wake up before the sun rises, I walk the beach, and wait for the dark, early morning to disappear and turn into a beautiful yellow and pink sky. This picture reminds me of how fortunate I am to wake up and enjoy a new beginning.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Peace and Love,

Who said Saturdays are for sleeping in?

Hello world,

After a week of work and a million other commitments that I had to fulfill, I told myself that I would sleep in and not do a darn thing today. After all, it’s Saturday. Ha! So much for that thought. My granddaughter spent the night and reminded me that I had said that we’d wake up real early and see the sun rise at the beach. That sounded like a good plan a few days ago but certainly not last night so I did what anyone in my position would do……I conveniently forgot to set my alarm.

Not so fast Lisa……

My little one came into my room and persuaded me with those big eyes to keep my word. Β The morning was BEAUTIFUL. We had breakfast on the beach and then I took pictures of her enjoying the ocean for an hour. I would not trade this morning for any other because life is made of memories and far too often we let our routine, comfort and procrastination get in the way of what really matters.
