|That Moon Song by Gregory Alan Isakov| “The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.” ― Deng Ming-Dao πŸŒ™βœ¨ #bllphotoaday #mymonthofmusic #mymonthto40 #moon #night #advice #music #nature #fullmoon #inspiring #beyourself #betruetoyou #power #beyou #calm #serene #sky #darkness #beauty #quotes #inspiration #song (at my asheville balcony)

Happy Monday, IG world! This weekend I was tagged by @murderingtime and @maramcewin, two special IG ladies with deep, beautiful souls, to share with you Ten Things That Make Me Happy. So, to start this week off with a positive vibe, here goes!

1| Twinkling Christmas lights all year round. Anywhere + everywhere. I think I use them to light my home more than regular lamps.✨ 2| Campfires and blankets and stars. Preferably all in the same moment. Perfection.πŸ”₯ 3| Giggles + belly laughs that make you cry.πŸ˜‚ 4| Finally being the age where I realize that I don’t really care what other people think about me. I’m no caught up in the image game. Finding that confidence to just be me has been life-changing.πŸ‘Š 5| Snow days! Enough said.❄️ 6| Photography days. Walking around with my camera dangling from my shoulder, sniffing out photos, all the while discovering life with every step.πŸ“· 7| Holiday traditions. USA-style and Sweden-style. So thankful that I have a double set of holidays to celebrate.πŸŽ‰ 8| Movies from my teenage/childhood years. Classics that bring back memories and remind me of that sense of hope and idealism that inspired me.🎭 9| Traveling. This is a given for me, but it is one of the most important things in my life. To see, explore, discover, challenge, learn, educate, enjoy, soak up, meet + experience life all around the world. What could be better?!🌍 Except… 10| My wife. My love. My best friend. My everything. Without her, I’d have no one to share this amazing journey of happiness with.❀️ #tenthingsthatmakemehappy #happiness #iglove #travel #life #journey #loveyourlife #tenthings #aboutme #photography #movies #lights #holidays #mylove #selfconfidence #lifeisamazing #love #me #butterfly #happy

Early morning. Stealing some moments for myself. Everything is quiet… I smell the coffee brewing. I see the rain falling. I hear nothing from the bedroom where my love and the kitty are still snoozing. I feel a bit of peace in our home.β˜•οΈ #home #coffee #morning #quiet #peaceful #solitude #flowersonmytable #ritual #early #breathe #breathingspace #kitchen #friday #cozy (at Two Chicks & A Cat)
