November | {A Thousand Words}

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” ― Mother Teresa

Can you imagine if we all went through life spreading happiness? What if we all did everything with the intention of love in our hearts?

I try to keep an open mind to this concept. Of course, we all have our bad days, but helping and encouraging others always comes back around.We never know what anyone is going through on any given day. Even small acts of kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Sometimes we never know how we have helped or impacted others, but every now and then they will let us know. We are all connected and it’s worth it to be kind.

We are finding the last of the dandelions in our yard, but we aren’t letting them go easily. Maybe I’m crazy, but I never mind if my daughter wants to blow the seeds around the yard. Wildflowers are a small gift and I always think of her when I see them.

A Thousand Words is a collaborative photography project. Our photos and posts are influenced by a different quote each month. Please continue to  Chris’  post to see how she interpreted this month’s quote.


October | {A Thousand Words}

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

(Full disclosure: would you believe I have never read this book?!)

For the past six years, we haven’t lived in a four seasons-type climate. At this point, I am more used to maybe two seasons: we’ll call them hot and less hot. BUT, I still think of Autumn as the best season. Fortunately, we recently traveled to New Mexico to visit my mother and attend Balloon Fiesta. We had some beautiful fall weather there! I do believe October would be my favorite season, if I lived somewhere where a true “October” existed. What a perfect time of year- crisp air, leaves changing, cool nights, warm afternoons. Sign me up!


I am thrilled to be a part of a new collaborative photography project, A Thousand Words! Every month we will have a new quote to interpret with an image. Please follow the circle to Alyssa’s post to see how she captured this month’s quote!
