Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I really like that first picture. And those are some funky candles!

You seem to be into Emerson quotes a lot lately. I love everything by Emerson! :)

Only you could put a mishmash of photos and make each one look interesting and compelling!

Have a wonderful week ahead, Becky!

The kitten in the window is such a sweet shot. Like stepping out on a stage.

Treasuring the normal day. Yep! That's what you do. Thank you for that.

Wonderful photos! Love that one of the hair...too bad mine is too short for that.

Unknown Mami said...

How true is that opening quote? You my friend, have a gift for finding beauty wherever you go. Just goes to show you carry it with you.

Ashley Sisk said...

Such a fun and happy set - really love it.

Love the hand shadow and the blue doggie! So cute!

Stasha said...

What fun. You always capture kids cheek and happiness and kitty's attitude perfectly.

Sara said...

Love the trees, the cat peeking through the curtains and the flowers, so beautiful!

Sweepy said...

Woof!
If we carry beauty with us then we do not need to seek it? My human said one does carry beauty because it is a description. But my human is a dud.

lifebythecreek said...

Beautiful captures of the little things that make life worth living. Too many people only look for the next "big" moment while the beautiful little ones just trickle away...

Maddy said...

Great quote!! Can't wait to see you in a few days :)

septembermom said...

Awesome quote! Great photo selection for this post's theme too.

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

I hope you framed that 1st shot, B! LOVE.

The the picture of the blue sky. It's so blue it hurts my eyes. But my favorite is the one of Kaish, with no shoes!
