Thought I’d join in on @kewiki #kewikihighlight_bestever theme this week… This is still one of may favorite iphone shots I’ve ever done. I’m not sure if it is the edit I did or the memories attached to it that makes me so partial to it though. What makes you love your favorite shots? #ilovetrees #iseeklight #iloveflares #manassas #virginia

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
- George Eliot |  Taken at #ShenandoahNationalPark #SkylineDrive a few years ago … such an exquisite view. #landscape #ilovetrees #chasingautumn #ilovebirds #mountains #fall #virginia

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
-Emily Bronte —- I got to see #autumn colors today! Best medicine ever. #chasingautumn #fall

Spent the day with two of the most amazing young girls ( @merebearcc & @ncmonkey33  ) and their folks too, dear friends who are more like family. Watching them grow up has been one of the greatest blessings in my life, I’m so #grateful for that.  #ilovetrees #roadtrippin #pennsylvania #messiahcollege #pa #mechanicsburg

"We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away." -Chuang Tzu last of old #autumn shots for the day, taken at #ShenandoahNationalPark on #SkylineDrive in #Virginia a few years back. This earth awes me. #fall #ilovetrees #chasingautumn #iseeklight #sunset #goldenhour

I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for pretty displays and packaging. I love feeling like whatever mundane, routine thing i am in the midst of doing is special. I treasure and delight in those moments. While in #NYC earlier this week for the #EscaladeReveal I found myself having many of those moments. The hospitality room that @cadillac had set up in the @trumpsoho was exquisite. The food and drinks were so elegantly displayed. Love that. #chrystiinthecity #newyorkcity #soho #trumpsoho #fortheloveofcoffee #coffee (at Trump SoHo New York)
