Sharing my vision with the World

This Moment

Manlookingatlake-Edit-2I took this picture in August of last year.  I had seen this man around the park several times.  Each time he captured my attention and each time I found myself slowing down and enjoying the moment.  I have not seen him around since last last year and hope he is well.  It is amazing how much we can learn from a total stranger if we just stop, observe, and listen.

Basking in the Sun

Turtles sunbathing

I was delighted to finally catch a glimpse of these turtles basking in the sun. When my mother-in-law was visiting last November she was fortunate to see them her first time visiting. I have been frequenting Lake Mirror for almost a year and had not caught them! So happy to see them. By the way, my mom was with me when I caught these. It was only her second time visiting the lake.
I am a turtle saver by nature. I have stopped traffic to save turtles. It’s in my blood.

Sunshine

These photographs were taken at the end of September 2012.  It seems like yesterday that these sun beauties were glistening and inviting.  I have missed you all and hope you enjoy!

Long Overdue

Hello Everyone,

In the past couple of months I have received a few awards that I am forever grateful to receive.  Due to time limitations, I had decided to be an award-free blog.  My nature, however, is when you receive something you give it back.  So the award-free blog isn’t working out that well :)  I want to thank Eunice at www.nutsfortreasure.com and Nizy at www.nackynice.wordpress.com for nominating my blog again for the Lovely Blog Award.  I also would like to thank Ivon at www.ivonprefontaine.wordpress.com for nominating me with the Reality Blog Award.  I am lucky to have connected with these three wonderful people.  It has been my pleasure.

These are five questions that Ivon passed on for the Reality Blog Award and that I have decided to answer for both awards:

1) If you could change something what would you change?

I would’ve never put down my camera.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

22-23

3) What one thing really scares you?

Not living up to my full potential/giving enough to others

4) What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it.

Start my own web site/business selling my photograph’s.  Yes, I know I will be able to complete it.

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

I would be interested in being Mother Teresa in the past and Eckhart Tolle in the present.

I nominated 20 different blogs I visit regularly that inspire me in some way, shape, or form.  I hope you will pay them a visit and enjoy their presence and insights as much as I do!

This award does not go with any specific “rules”. Instead each nominee can do whatever feels good to them, but I hope they will take the nomination as a sign of appreciation and encouragement.  I am awarding all of the below for both awards!!

Sunday Post: Delicious

Here are just a few of the delicious delights I love to indulge in.  I love natural foods for their extraordinary flavors.  Lemon-lime water quenches my thirst in an instant.  Definitely a necessity living in Florida.

Brown rice with veggies and shrimp is a weekly staple in my house.  It is a healthy meal full of flavor and deliciousness!  For lunch is normally a green salad topped with EVOO and dessert some fruit.

Thanks to one of my husbands co-worker’s we discovered Mangos last year.  I have been hooked ever since.  When they are in season I eat a few per week.  As you can see above, we enjoy sharing them as a snack together.  Last but not least, when watermelon season roles around I am in heaven!

I hope you have enjoyed this post!  To check out more DELICIOUS posts or to enter your own click on the dragon below!
