I was just 5 days old the first time I was blessed by it… The first sliver of summer sun that rose up in the Tennessee sky. I’m almost certain that it was love at first sight, because every since that day when autumn returns, my heart whispers the sweetest of goodbyes. Today, I paid closer attention to the warmth of the sun on my skin, the greenest of green, the blooms of flowers and how deeply i’ll miss the smell of summertime showers… Then, I thought of my summer in the hills that I love so very much. I am excited and filled with the anticipation of watching the beauty unfold as the seasons change.. But, first… I want to reflect on the moments I was blessed with during another southern Appalachian summer.. And, to make it even more of a blessing – I get to share my reflections with you.
Below, you’ll find just a sliver of the images that I had the honor to capture this summer. My hope is that, they will inspire you to not only go outside and play – but to seek simplicity, light and beauty in each and every day.
