My daily "HOUR of JOY"

OK, so Jack Canfield, the creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul, is an amazing motivational speaker and mentor!!! John and I have been taking these incredible lessons from him and one thing he says is to find one hour a day and use that hour to do something you love doing ( My Hour of Joy). It didn't take long for me to figure out what I wanted to do. I love nature, so I've decided to take Allie and Vaughn with me to enjoy an hour a day at the UNM "college track" that is only 2 minutes away from home. I took my camera to capture the beauty that surrounds me. I am no photographer, but I am looking into learning how to be. Anyway, I really enjoyed my hour of Joy and can't wait to get out there today!!!!

At first look, it doesn't look very joyful!

But, get up close and there is beauty

You're no photographer? Those pictures are beautiful! The faraway and closeup comparison looks like something that you would find in a magazine. Love, Lucy

Hey Hanne!! Jessi gave me your blog address, so I'm excited that we can keep in touch through blogging now! Your family is beautiful, and so are the pictures that you took. I agree with the others-- you seem to be a natural photographer!
