be a capturer.                                                                                                                             be an adventurer. 
be an explorer, an observer of the world                                                                                  take two seconds courage
of the ordinary, of the mudane,                                                                                                 for a five second leap. 
seeking beauty where others find none                                                                                    be courageous. reach out.
with eager eyes, an open heart,                                                                                               be the first to take the jump
and a notebook brimming with stories.                                                                                  too many are afraid of.

be a doer.                                                                                                                               be healthy. 
jot down lists. do things that                                                                                                 drink water. grow meals. 
have been seeping into your dreams                                                                                    be out-of-doors.
these past few months.                                                                                                         exercise. drink in fresh air. 

be creative.                                                                                                                          be present.      
cook. paint. write. read.                                                                                                      connect. learn about people.
write what's one your heart.                                                                                               laugh. breath. study. ask.
document life. whether it                                                                                                    don't just see but observe. 
be shared with the world              
or in your personal keeping.
write hat should never be forgotten.                                                                                                                

this is my heart for this summer. to live. to breath. to create. to thrive on busy but not glorify it.
to be so alive that it drips like the sun spilling from the cerulean sky.


  1. Love this post, dear Grace! Your photos are wonderful (as always!) & that quote speaks to my heart. <3 <3


  2. "this is my heart for the summer. to live. to breathe. to create. to thrive on busy but not glorify it. to be so alive that it drips like the sun spilling for cerulean sky."

    Darling, this is something I'd love to memorize and say it over and over and over again. I want to hear it all the time. You are wonderful and this breathless.

    And my heart is pretty much wrapped up in this.
    I love you.

  4. Grace, Grace, Grace... you leave me speechless! Where DO I begin?

  8. Oh, dear. This is just beautiful, and I mean it. Every photo is beautiful - the colour, the sun rays, the flowers. And those words...I just want to memorize them like a poem. It's a collective manifesto I want to live out as well.

  9. Those pictures have such a sweet and soft quality about them.


  10. Um wow these are amazing. I always try to get the sun to look like that in my pictures, but it never works out.
