A Breath of Fresh Air

Cheesy? I don't care, because it was a day greatly needed. It started out this morning, by hearing the peaceful coos of sweet doves outside our kitchen window. I cannot begin to explain how ecstatic I am that these little lovers have chosen our eves to make their home under. Hubby and I have been spying on them the last couple days, hoping they would get their nest all together, and they finally did!

I really could not get a good picture of the nest, but here is proof that they do in fact live under our eves. (I swear if those blue jays come and try to eat their eggs, I will shoot them!)

Some pretty flowers in our front yard

Then, I took hubby up to the foot hills for a surprise picnic. It was a win-win situation...we ate yummy food, laid by the river, relaxed in flower-filled meadows, read a book, watched the sunset, and oh, we even rode the Harley. The only down-fall was that we couldn't use the picnic basket-it wouldn't fit in the saddle bags. :) It was a beautiful day and actually, my first time away from the computer in a long while, so that was lovely.

I just could not believe how green it was up there. This was one of my very favorite pictures. And I wonder why... Maybe it's because of all the glorious snow still up on those mountains?

Finding some inspiration along the way. {There is just nothing like nature itself. I am so incredibly inspired by every texture, color, and piece of life out there.}

Snuck in a picture of the hubby

We went down to the {beach} to touch the water and let me tell you, it felt like ICE CUBES! (Oh and yes, for those of you who don't know, I have gone brunette.)

I will leave you with this. Pure beauty.

You did EXACTLY what I was wishing I was doing. I really really need to get up there to thank God for his gorgeous handiwork . . . before the heat comes and I begin to question Him! ;) Thanks so much for sharing those pics. They are really great. I love the skies!
