a little throwback...a little quote...

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

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures on this very cold morning. It helped to brighten my day! Is that Malachi? My word...what a cute baby!

  2. Donna,

    Thank you for this lovely spot to tuck into when things are really busy.

    I love the quote, and believe it to be entirely true.

    My day has been full of chores, cleaning out, sorting, recycling ... and spending a fair amount of time waiting at the Stadthaus for forms so we can move.

    (Living in Switzerland is lovely; leaving is a challenge. They do everything well - but there is such a kerfuffle to getting out of town ;-)

    but I digress ... this is lovely. I could gaze at these images all day. Thanks!

    Thank you, this is just what I needed right now. We are gearing up for an open house today at our office. Busy, busy and I just sat down to calm my nerves. : )
    Little Malachi, oh so precious...or is it Asher?
    Your pictures are crystal clear. The flowers and the jellyfish...oh my.

  5. Beautiful photography, as usual. Asher is so, so tiny. Where does the time go? I love that I can see your reflection in Emma's sunglasses. Thanks for sharing.

    The opening flower and the jellyfish are so beautiful they make me feel emotional.

  9. That quote must be where the term "be YOU tiful" comes from, eh?

    Wonderful quote and photos. Reminded me of Pastor Nelson, my childhood church pastor. He always pronounced the word beautyfull. Dad said he liked that, because beautiful things and people are truly full of beauty.

    I could seriously look at the photo of Asher all day. His eyes are gorgeous, but that little mouth. I'm smitten. :)
