Team Up Thursday: Doors

The lovely ladies behind Mental inventory and the Hip Momma's Journal do not disappoint. This has been another sensational week of inspiration. Thanks ladies!

Puna was brave with her snap. She peeked into a kitchen door and turned out a beauty. There is such a story in the activity of the shot. Don't you agree? Puna, I admire your images. Thank you for another super week.

My snap is of my front door - a favorite place of mine. We bought this home off the people who built it and I can only imagine the stories of people who came and went through that very door.
Happy Snapping!

This week's topic was great! Puna was at the lake celebrating summer and her shot is of the kids she had there celebrating, too. Mine is of a sensational celebration of a tiny little new addition a shake early but healthy. I find it amusing that both of us have children featured in our Celebration photos.
Thanks so much for playing along Puna!
Without further ado...


Go shout out some love over at Mental Inventory or The Hip Momma's Journal. Megan and Melody are the masterminds behind partnering people up and encouraging everyone to stretch just a little more.
Are you playing along?

Teach me.

Have a go at this video. Do you remember?

On my mind.

Run your fingers through my soul. For once, just once, feel exactly what I feel, believe what I believe, perceive as I perceive, look, experience, examine, and for once, just once, understand.

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems dont rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what is going to happen next.
