20140720-083217.jpg Ahhhh, Summer. Or Summmaaa as I have started to call it. Bountiful. Colorful. Insert whatever summery word suits you. The Market yesterday was a riot of color. The yellows really catching my eye the most.

20140720-083805.jpg I had this image on my Instagram feed yesterday, saying I could photograph tomatoes every day in this season. They are just such perfectly perfect things to capture. And eat!

I have written about this a bit before, but I would like to say a few words again. I have always wanted to have my daily blog post be a bright spot in your day. Keeping it upbeat and positive is incredibly important to me. This is how I try and live my life each day. There can be so much darkness in the world. The horrific event that happened the other day has me teary just typing this. My heart just aches for the families who lost loved ones on that flight. I sometimes feel funny posting such light things after such a tragedy. Please know these events affect me greatly, but I feel we must not let that darkness overshadow or overcome all the good there is in the world. Not by sticking our head in the sand, but rather by staying positive and not letting events like these overcome us.

So I will focus on the beauty of the day. There is so much of it around us.
With much love,
