should never crave the rose.”
I couldn’t decide which image I like better. What do you think?
Which image is your favorite?
What have you taken with your phone lately?

If you read either one of my blogs, you know I truly believe with all my soul that it’s the little moments in our lives that fills our life with happiness & joy. It’s the beauty of those moments that transform our lives, creating memories to forever cherish.
In 2015, I was in a creative rut, one that I couldn’t seem to get out of. I didn’t take nearly as many images as I normally do, and at the end of the year, when I went through & picked my favorite images to print, I was completely saddened by the lack of images. I mean I only had 1 or 2 of all my 5 kids together for the whole year! Pretty soon my oldest will be 18 and when he’s off making a place for himself in the world and I will looking for those images to comfort me during his absence.
A few days later, I was checking out a few of my favorite blogs and saw the recaps of their year through images and my heart broke. This is something I truly regret. Something I feel I missed out on because I couldn’t dig myself out of the creative hole I was in. So with the new year beginning, I’m determined to not repeat last year’s mistake, it’s time to jump back in and start doing what I love to do best…….photographing & exploring our the world around us. My photography is something I do for myself, as well as my children. Yes, they enjoy it as much as I do. We spend many a nights looking at old images, talking about what happened in them. But I also love sharing the meaningful images or images I’m proud of with like minded people. Which is where my 1st 2016 photography project began.
This is a 365 project that that highlights & documents the beauty in our everyday. And “Beautiful Journey” was born.
Please check back daily for my new images. I will accompany them with a quote, story, poem, or sometimes with nothing at all. But since I’m a quote gal, you can bet there will be quite a few of them. 🙂 If you are doing your own 365 or another photography or creative project, please leave me a link in the comments so I can follow along. There’s a lot of new things happening with Ever Changing over this next year, hope you’ll come back regularly & check them out.
What do you do to get yourself out of a creative rut?

Thank you to all of you, who makes blogging such a fun experience for me. Here’s to another 200 posts!
