Film. Kodak Portra 400.

I took these captures a while ago, and these peonies have opened up even more.  Their sweet scent has graced my home for the past couple of days and there’s nothing quite like their beauty.   They remind of myself – very closed and hard at the beginning, but when I open up – my heart and soul just seem to pour out.


There are a few things that are out of my control right now, but weigh very heavily on my heart.  Through it all, I am reminding myself what is important and to enjoy the simple, everyday joys of my life.

I wish you a wonderful Memorial Day weekend~

    I’ve always loved peonies for the very same reason. I have some on my dining table right now. You’re on the right track with handling life’s occurrences. Remember to smile, breathe and take a second to smell the peonies :). Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

    These are lovely. Don’t see these around where I live too much. I think I might be a lot like your peonies, too!ReplyCancel
