daily bits of beauty

I've been busy enjoying life - Training my eyes to look for the lovely that surrounds me. The days are just whistling by... nothing monumental, nothing to stop traffic or make the evening news (thank goodness!), just little bits and pieces of the daily beauty that's this life of mine.

I've been:
[enjoying the beauty of the season and all the bounty that it brings][knitting rainbows for winter][capturing the seeds of the season past][cozying in and baking][being amazed at the changes in the woods...daily][starting on some secret Christmas crafting] [uploading the sounds of the season to come][and of course, gathering the leaves in our yard]

What a lovely post. It just made me stop, take a breath, and look around at all the beauty in my everyday. My day had started terribly, but this certainly made me stop and readjust my feelings.

Thanks

It's the daily bits of beauty that make life worth living. If we had to wait for something gigantically monumental we'd shrivel up inside. Thank you for sharing pieces of the daily beauties in your life!
