One Little Word|Captured|Week 5

This photo is SOOC. As part of my JOURNEY this year, I have decided that I really need to be more aware of my hometown. I live in the beautiful city of Riverside. There is so much history, cultural diversity and beauty and I want to capture it.
I have lived all over the world. Seriously. I've lived in Korea, Germany, 10 different states and I've visited tons more. I really wish that I could go back to some of those places and appreciate what I had around me. I lived near the beautiful city of Chicago, I was an hour drive from Seattle, I visited France, Spain, Greece...what do I have to show for it? Vague memories. Seriously. I honestly think that I rush through everything so much trying to hurry and get this done, get that done, help this person, do that job for so and so... *sigh* Not anymore. I HAVE to slow down. I want to look around and enjoy...and learn...and appreciate...and live this journey.

Life…as I see it


  1. Lovely photo. It captures a hometown feeling.

  2. wow, how cool to have lived and visited so many places!! :) You can get stuck in going to the same places all the time. I like your goal of experiencing more!

  3. lOVE the new blog. It's gorgeous.

    I thought about doing the one little word too, but didn't follow through with my thought.. I'm so excited to see what you've done with it.

  4. what a great picture of your hometown, I agree - I need to get more pictures of mine also. You should journal your memories of these other places if you don't have as many photos... how wonderful all the places you have been

  5. such a good lesson. it's true about slowing down but it is so hard to do. i will try to remember this this week, too. thanks for the reminder and thanks for sharing!
