LET HEAVEN AND NATURE SING.

When out on an adventure, I love a good panoramic view just as much as anyone else, but it is the details we so often miss. I try my best to take note of those wherever I am. I think we all too often overlook the smaller beauties of the world in our search for something grander, when in fact, the beauty is in the details.

While I was at the Renew Retreat, we walked up the road from our cabin to an empty lot to do a little photo shoot with everyone. The lot is a beautiful empty field right now filled with the glories of nature, but one day the grasses will be cut down and the flowers trampled over without a second thought so that a cabin may be built there. Life is short and beauty will fade, so don't miss the opportunities you have to soak up the creation around you today!













XOXO.

I agree with you so much! The beauty is in the small things, the small wonders that make us stop for a second and realize that there is so much joy, so much adventure deeply sewn in the tiny specks of nature. Nature truly brings out my creativity and I love being all around it, taking deep breaths and renewing the sense of my soul. This is exactly what this post did for me! Thank you, Meg!
