Something pretty....

I was just reading a post of blog that's new to me, Beauty in the Ordinary. Jacqueline's "quest" (my word) is to sort through all the mish mash of life and find the good things in life to celebrate. As I read her most recent post this morning, I was struck by the simplicity of the notion that no matter what happens, there is always something "good", there is always beauty in life to behold. Her blog is an artsy feast for the eyes...lovely photographs mingled around words from her life...



It made me want to post something "pretty" this morning, just for the sake of art....something beautiful, captured through my lens...

Like these little friends at an East Coast wedding...


or this stunning bloom from he Chrysanthemum show...


Or my pretty little Bella, whose life is as simple as they come...


Fall Family Dinner is over,
Thanksgiving is around the corner. 
Dreams of Christmas holidays are dancing in my head...
and with it, the Annual tree cutting day with the kids and grand kids...


Laurel. Life is good.
