For The Love Of...


‘I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.’ – Arthur Rubinstein

I love my family.  I love to take pictures, read books, and practice yoga.  I love flowers.  I love the smell of lavender, basil and also really fresh tomatoes.   I love the sound my daughter’s laughter and rain on a metal roof.  I love the beach, and the desert.   I love the taste of fig and goat cheese pizza, dark chocolate and cheesecake.  I love wearing old blue jeans and flip flops. 

I am also grateful for all of these things, and so much more…

What do you love?

Today I am linking up at Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday, the theme today is For The Love Of…
My photo above is textured with the Kim Klassen texture simple  and shows two things I love, flowers and books. 

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great week!

Michelle

  7. Dear Michelle,
    thanks a lot for your affectionate (or do I better write: warmhearted?) comment on my latest post. You live in Ohio - as far as I've read a couple of years ago approx. 27,4% of Ohio's population has German ancestors. What about you? Michelle is a very international first name. It sounds French to me, but even some German girls are named Michelle as well. And even your first lady is called Michelle - and she definitely has no (or not many) German or French ancestors... ;-)
    I really like, no, even LOVE your current photograph and its angle of view!
    Regards from sunny Germany (--> I love our mild and sunny spring 2014 here in Germany!)
    Uwe.

  8. Hi Michelle,
    I do love posts like this, to hear what people love and in your case it is a lot. I absolutely agree with you Michelle! The most important things for me are my family too, nature around us, hobbies and pets and friendships (even those with long distances) ;-)))
    Your picture today is so great. I have this flower in my garden (in this purple color) and I love to make macro shots of these beauties with little tiny rain drops.
    Have a great week and many greetings to your husband. Hope he is getting better soon.
    Brigitte
