transitions | life & seasons

This past weekend I escaped to Southampton to visit one of my closest gals.  There’s nothing like a few days of wine tasting, dancing to live music, feeling the sand beneath your feet and catching up with an old friend to refresh the brain.  I said my goodbye to Summer and I’m ready to embrace Fall (my favorite season) with cozy, sweater-clad arms.  It’s time to start appreciating what I have and working harder for what I want – whether it’s making time for an art project I thought of years ago or getting rid of my snooze button habit.  Here’s some inspiration, as always.

Get organized –  love the feel of Claudia Benvenuto’s Bungalow Office

Wish and pray – but don’t expect.

art & life | it’s all about perspective

Isn’t it amazing how a thought-out composition and a different perspective can completely change your opinion of something?  In every day life I don’t daydream of puddles and shadows, but they sure do look good when photographed the right way.  They DO happen to be two of my favorite elements to capture when I’m romping around with my camera. Maybe that’s why I’m so fond of this awesome collection I discovered on Pinterest (BONUS: it contains some super cool old shots of New York!).

If only we were as talented at placing that strategic composition and positive perspective on every aspect of our lives.
