What a beautiful place we live in. The colors were just beginning to pop this past weekend.

Recently I was given a new camera and I’m learning how to use some of the newer settings. This was shot on Vivid…so the colors would be more prominent.  I imagine this weekend they will really be in their glory.

This morning I am grateful for blue skies, cool air, sunshine, my children, family and friends.

Wishing you a day of gratitude and a moment of true inner peace.

Ciao!

From life in the fast lane to Gratitude…

Max Patch – near Asheville, North Carolina

Do you ever take a moment to ‘breathe’ and just sit with your breath and smile and be grateful for what you have?  I try to do this at least once every day.

I had a priest years ago…that would stop Mass at 12 noon … and remind us to give thanks for some thing, experience, person, blessing that had happened earlier in the day.

This is a wonderful reminder to step out of the fast lane and breathe….with Gratitude.

I’m giving thanks that my photograph of Max Patch was a true gift to my doctor and is now hanging in her office.

What are you grateful for?

Friday late afternoon in early August….

Some work, some play, some time to think away

An Afternoon to reminisce and say ‘Let’s Stay!’

Peach Roses from the market in Verona Italy

The longest day of the year…when the fireflies are out…and the roses are blooming and the air is filled with the smell of honeysuckle. Enjoy it and make it a wonderful day for you and your loved ones. Go for a walk, a hike, a bicycle ride (I did this morning)…it’s so nice out and remember to find one thing to be grateful for each day…it’s there for the us… like the air we breathe….just waiting to be noticed. Peace to all…. A

It is my hobby to take photographs and this one really captured my eye once I saw it on the big screen.  I hope you enjoy it as well. As for the job search, I’m getting plenty of work and am very grateful.  May your job search bring you wonderful results and work you enjoy. Ciao! Anita

A Winter without Snow in the Western North Carolina Mountains

I mentioned this to a friend today…that said…it did snow some….I can assure you…it was like NOT having Any! I missed it!  I enjoy SNOW DAYS…those unexpected days where you wake up to 3″ or more and everything is closed down and you know you can stay home in your pajamas – drink hot chocolate – get dressed and go sledding if you want. Take photos of the snow in your back yard. I’ll try to find one to post in this blogpost. I miss it!  The flowers are blooming – the grass is growing and the trees are beginning to bloom as well. There’s even bees and wasps out…it’s NOT officially spring yet! And….my body is saying ‘what happened to Winter and the hibernation period’? Well…as far as the job front is concerned..it’s almost been a year since my layoff from the G.M. position of 10 years! The year has been a roller coaster to say the least. I thank God for the work I have and for those who have supported me through it.  It’s been quite a challenge and I sense that it’s not settled down for me yet.  I also give thanks for my husband, who’s been so supportive, my family and my friends. May you be enjoying your day/season and/or current job. Until the next post – ciao!

Autumn in Western North Carolina. A time for reflection and gratitude. What a wonderful time to hike to photograph this season. Soon I will be displaying my photography at West One Salon in Asheville, North Carolina. In the mean time….there’s much to prepare for. Wishing all of my readers a wonderful weekend and joy in their hearts. Ciao! Anita
