Photo 365 #225

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen the beautiful blue sky we had the other morning.  If not, scroll down the page a ways and look for it in the sidebar.

Go on – I’ll wait. 🙂

I took that picture on my way to work.  I’d stopped to get gas and while I was filling up, I happened to notice the sky.  But the beauty didn’t stop there:

I took these on my way to lunch that very same noon.  I love how the clouds just feathered out at the ends, almost as if they were oil and the sky water.  Except I suppose oil really doesn’t do that in water, does it?  Well then, it’s almost like the clouds are smoke that’s just fading away…

Okay, that’s not a very good comparison, either.  But I’m still recovering from strep, so, uh…And it’s Friday…

Anyway, I just love how these pictures turned out.  The colors are spectacular, the clouds are gorgeous, and I could stare at them all day long. 🙂

Photo Friday: The door throwback

I don’t know why, but I just love pictures of kids and doors:

Maybe it’s because my sons love to explore (particularly where and when they shouldn’t).  Maybe it’s because it’s a fantastic reminder that to a child, everything is new and different and somehow magical, which is something that adults often seem to forget.  Maybe it’s because it reminds me of the magic I used to see in the world, and that the magic still exists if I’d just take the time to look for it.

I don’t know about you, but I could use a little magic at the moment.

What reminds you to seek the magic in your own life?

Have a great weekend, everybody, and don’t forget to check out Charnele’s throwback post!
