If you look for beauty, you will find it.


Did this week really happen?


I feel like it was a blur.




Casey from Bumpin' Along the Road Less Traveled is the winner of the Canvas giveaway from Uprinting.


Thanks so much to everyone that participated. 
I really wish I could give a canvas to every single person. 
I asked Gary if we could.
I told him it would only be $13.89 times 68 for the people that entered if we gave them an 8x10.
I didn't do the actual math since math gives me a headache.
Gary muttered something about me being crazy.
So, I assume that means no.
I sure wish I could : (.
If you have printing needs, don't forget that Uprinting can handle all of your online printing.

Look for it.

Becky, you are talented at seeing being beauty and catching it! Seeing it is readily available to those who seek it, but capturing it? That's a gift :).

Love this. :) It's something I try and remind myself... But I always forget... get frustrated, and then have to remind myself all over again to just look for it. :)

You are so sweet to want to give everyone a print. It is the thought that counts. Congrats to the winner though. I can just see Gary's face when you asked about getting one for everyone. Ha.

Jennifer said...

What beautiful images, and words!

Jen@ADropintheBucket said...

Great photos. And you are right. Just as long as we remember to look for it, we will find beauty! Have a great weekend. :-)

Congrats to your winner! It's a rainy yucky day but I'm looking for the beauty today.....it's here somewhere!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sarah said...

I agree wholeheartedly, which is one of the reasons I take the time to write and take pictures...I'm letting myself notice all the beauty.

So I read your comment on Kelle's blog that your mother in law passed away before your were married. Mine did too, but I did get to know her for a few months and she was such an angel. I have found that I miss her so much now that I'm raising her grandchildren and long for the relationships that would have been. Ok, just had to share that connection.

Have a fabulous Fall weekend. XO sarah

I am glad that Gary was home to mutter. And say no because that was probably smart too.

I am also glad that God gave me "beauty glasses". I find it pretty much everywhere. I wonder why it is harder for some people to see than others. But I think it is true that it's available to all who seek it.

Hard not to see the beauty here at your place, Miss Becky!

I know if you look for beauty, you find it! You will find it just about everywhere! :) And you sure did... these photos are amazing. Beautiful. So happy you joined us 'in the studio' this week... even though your week was a blur! ;)

jlo said...

I'm all about being "in the moment" right now because I get so stressed with the day to day. Good reminders!

Jim said...

You really don't have to look very far to find it. I do every day!

Caseybumpinalong said...

THANK YOU, BECKY! I can't tell you how excited I am - my first ever canvas print - I've wanted one for SO LONG!
