Looking up

Hand me a camera and I'll want to point it up straight away. Endeavouring to capture the wonder I see in the sky when I stop to just be each day. It's more than wonder I see though. Maybe because I'm an optimist.... 

The vastness, that expanse - it reminds me that I'm part of something bigger. It reminds me that there are endless possibilities and opportunities out there. That tomorrow is a chance to start again. And that beauty presents in every single day.

It reminds me to stop and not just look up but look around and step outside and really see. And it's then that I always find myself giving thanks.


{Life has been beautifully busy these past couple weeks. And in taking time to look up and look around, I've got a little overwhelmed in a good way by what can be and by what is. I think this week will see a little more sky gazing with my two little girls in tow and a little more giving thanks as I wait on clarity. Elisa x} 

Is there something in your day that reminds you to give thanks? What are you most grateful for today?

  1. I love your looking up shots
    I look up to our mountain each and every day - it gives me perspective and calm
    And the ocean - always seeking the ocean for moments of clarity
    Grateful that my little boy cheerfully helped me plant pretty flowers today so that we can watch them grow together

  2. I do love looking up and seeing the beauty around us too, the sun glistening through the leaves. You always have a way with words, so calming and so wise and true. Today I'm grateful when I see my little one creating, watching her imagination unfold. Have a wonderful week with your little ones. xx

  3. Oh what a capture. Yep. I definitely need to look up more :)

  4. I so love taking photos of the world above me whether it be the sky or the tree tops.

    Grateful today for the simple little life we have carved out and feel so blessed to be living.
