Good Reads: Photography + Inspiration

Fall in Graeagle, CaliforniaAs a blogger, I like reading other blogs.  I come across a lot of interesting articles and ideas.  Instead of just forwarding them on to my mom, I’d like to share them with all of you too.

And a couple that I find inspiring:

A great reminder to take a step back and see that what you already have is probably all you need.  This story really puts things into perspective.

Seriously, I’m sure we can all cut out some of the bullshit to do the things we truly love.  Don’t waste a moment.
