Bella asked me to generate a prompt for this weeks 52 Photos Project
Her beloved Mother passed last week, so "release" came to mind.
We all have so many ways we let go, unwind, and release.

morning ritual

I am in the midst of uprooting from Texas, and moving to Florida.
So I am digging in my archives for photos to show you ways I  "let go"

Lately planking has been an amazing diversion for me...
I feel a little bit naughty, bravely daring
and somewhat refreshed

so come on now...tell me how you unwind, LET IT GO!

Seven more sleeps and I will return

beautiful in my own way

I'm perfect in my imperfections, 
happy in my pain, 
strong in my weaknesses 
and beautiful in my own way 
cause I'm me

Queen of Arts, she Rocks my World

photo by Kim

My friend Kim de Broin Mailhot, aka The Queen of Arts
aka The Rock Fairy is the artist behind these tiny little treasures. I place them in random public spots to be discovered. I have them all over my home. I slip them into the pockets of a friend in need, indeed! I photograph them and plan to spread the love even more by selling prints someday! {{ still working on that one}}

You can buy these little delicious morsels in her 
Etsy Shoppe as well as printed notecards of her paintings like the card below she mailed to me...her heart is "One Big Walking"!  as I have watched her paint, and believe me, 
she paints with her whole heart!!

 photo by Kim

Kim, I adore your spirit, your generous Big Heart Walking, and amazing talents as a mixed media artist...and as a friend!
