Inspiration of the Week : Color, Mountains, and Perspective

Much of my inspiration comes from the constantly changing display of colors in Colorado. On my drive home, I had to pull over to admire the view. The mountain sunset sky was perfectly doubled in its roadside lake reflection. Soft blue transitions to peach and into the darker outline of mountains and land. 

Sometimes a little perspective change enhances everything.

I had to snap a few photographs for the landscape before continuing the journey home. Do you ever have to stop and give time for truly taking things in? I love a good slow moment. Here it was an amplified world of pastel. Definitely has me inspired to create my own reflections of that beauty in the upcoming jewelry I create.  

Color My Mornings: Soulful Self-care

There's something about the energy of a new day that feels fresh and full of possibilities. I do believe things are better in the morning. Today I ran out (in my pajamas, mind you) when I noticed the world was illuminated with rose light. I was so thankful to see the mountains waking up. The warm sunlight rolled out and reached the highest peaks before stretching the entire mountain range. Usually people face East to catch the sunrise... today, I found beauty in looking West, seeing the way the sun greeted the landscape.

This sight was a reset for my soul. Total gratitude and peace in that moment. I always do my best creative work when I slow down and get grounded in awe and nature. Look at those colors! Who wouldn't feel inspired? 

How do you recenter yourself? Are you a nature-needer? Treat yourself to a massage? Manicure? Yoga? I hope whatever it is, you're making space to take care of you. 

Be well,
