she read, she saw...


This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is finishing up her third year of law school in Seattle, WA, a photograph I took and she picks a quote to go with it.  So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result.



"I will love the light for it shows me the way, but I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars." -Og Mandino



Photo info: this one was just a few years ago. the morning after a little dinner party. the sun streaming in on the table which I obviously hadn't cleaned up yet. sharing a meal with friends, such a pleasure in life.

I needed this today girls - thank you!

I'm mostly a glass half full kind of girl but lately find the 'half empty' thinking was winning over so will lock this image and quote in and let the light shine through.

Happy weekend Lovelies!

Stars are beautiful, we take them so much for granted as we go about our busy lives, and yes we need the dark to appreciate their loveliness - Such a simple and striking photo to remember your special time with friends.
