9/ 365... Peaceful joy

It's rare for me to be alone. I can hardly go to the bathroom or shower without having a little person (or two... or all four) joining me. I'm ok with that but there are times that I just need to have a little "me time".

Today I took some time for me. So I went for a drive. No music. Just me. Alone.

Peaceful joy.

Then I came back home ready to put myself on hold for a while.

9/365

Today a special little girl turned ONE! Happy Birthday to my niece, Grace!

This is really pretty. Is it SOOC or did you do some pp on it?

Thanks! AimeeJ, I used a LR preset called "antique". That was it :).

Loving your nature posts. Inspiring me to get outside- even if it is freezing.
