Spring awakenings (WPC – Awakening)

Despite what might be happening outside my window right now, the birds and blooms are telling me the earth is awakening. It’s spring time!

Awakening is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.

 

 

 

 

 

A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Rise/Set is this week’s Photo challenge from The Daily Post. Be sure to click on the icon below to see more fabulous interpretations of this week’s challenge.

Morning Moon – what’s your story? (WPC – Story)

The upside of not being able to sleep last week (I’ve yet to find the upside of not being able to sleep this week) was that I was able to follow the full moon from its high point in the sky until it finally dipped behind the trees.

As with the sun setting each night allows one to rewrite the next day, for me each full moon is a reminder to reflect on how the last few weeks were, and what the coming weeks will be. Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Story is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.

Transported to another place (WPC: Out of this World)

Driving across central Iceland is like driving nowhere else in the world. Particularly in the dead of winter with a setting sun. Dormant volcanic mounds dot the landscape in every direction. The road the only evidence of man’s existence.

There was a rumor going around when we lived there, that this is where NASA would send it’s astronauts to get a sense of what it would be like on the moon. We believed it!

Out of This World is the current challenge of The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.

Morning coffee on the Piazza (WPC – Face in the Crowd)

The memory of my little family sitting at a cafe located on the Piazza San Marco, listening to the live band behind us whilst we watched the many tourists around us creating their own memories, will forever be etched in my mind.

As we sat drinking in the atmosphere, complete with princess water bottle, each of us were simply another a face in the crowd enjoying the morning to those looking in our direction.

Beloved travel and children (WPC – Beloved)

Never did I dare dream that not only would I fulfill my desire of traveling to Morocco (and spending a night in the Sahara Desert) but I would do so with my young children. What an amazing time we had with so many incredible experiences!

Here my two little darlings are enjoying some “down-time” with a game by the pool at Sawadi, our kasbah for the week we spent in Southern Morocco.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Beloved.

The Jumping Rabbit (WPC – Variations on a Theme)

This restaurant’s exterior really caught my eye as we strolled through the streets of old Quebec City. Its whimsy reminded me so much of all the shenanigans of Peter Rabbit.

If only we’d had time to have a meal at this restaurant then I could have seen if this truly was inspired by Beatrix Potter or it was simply my imagination running wild.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Variations on a Theme.
