As I write this post I am sitting at my desk looking out the window and admiring my neighbor’s lovely tree. My neighbor is a sweet lady and her and I have swapped comments on a couple of occasions making note of how beautiful the tree is. Unfortunately, we have no idea what kind it actually is. This wasn’t my original post for today but sometimes there is nothing more inspiring than Mother Nature herself and you just have to go with it. I spent some time gathering a few other images that  inspired me today… I can only hope they have the same effect on you!  —xoox, V.
