Snapshot Challenge Saturday

This week’s challenge is a little late, but better late than never, right? I spent today at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival, which I’ll be posting about later this week, but while we were waiting on line to enter the event, I took a picture of the scenery beside us. All it takes is awareness of our surroundings to really appreciate nature’s beauty around us.

Snapshot Challenge Saturday

This week’s Snapshot Challenge happens to fall on Valentine’s Day, a day of the year set aside to express one’s love to his or her significant other, or in some cases, to his or her mistress (just kidding, don’t take that as a sign of encouragement if that pertains to you). I wanted to tie this concept in with my Snapshot Challenge because we shouldn’t just set one day aside out of the year to express our love to those who are important to us. Likewise, we often try to get away and see the world with hopes of coming across nature’s beauty, when in actuality, it consistently surrounds us. I went outside today and took this picture right before the sun began to set. Remember that everyday should be a Valentine’s Day and a day to express our love to those who are important to us. Similarly, if we open our eyes to what’s in front of us, we can find beauty surrounding us wherever we may happen to be.
