This week I found a new blog called Surprised By Life. The author, Brooke, challenged her readers to take pictures of the beauty they discovered in their lives. I love this idea, and I decided this was the perfect time to play with the Instagram app I had downloaded and never used. Every day I've taken a picture or two. Here's a glimpse into the beauty in my life.
|Marigolds stink. Have you noticed? I don't particularly care for them. BUT one pot of marigolds has cleared my back patio of annoying insects without the need for chemicals.|
|Two peppers! Not only have my brown thumb and I managed to keep the plant alive - it's actually growing things! I'm stupid-excited about this!|
|My first basil harvest. Something else I haven't killed!|
|Five years ago this month a scruffy, scrawny, bug-covered mutt showed up in our front yard at just the perfect time. Today we can't imagine our life without him. PS...He's not so scrawny anymore.|
|Sweet sleepy face snuggled with his "Rawr" and his blanket. A rare moment of peace in a week full of teething issues.|
