Crunchy autumn leaves aren’t just fun to jump in, but they are also great to look at! From awesome art projects to hearing them crackle as you step on them, I have always loved this unique part of autumn. Here are some of the best, most beautiful leaves I found this year. Continue reading
I recently enjoyed a restorative weekend camping near the Washington coast in Elma. Gazing up at the stars from the vast wildness expanse of Western WA is one of my favorite summer pastimes but since moving to Pullman, the 6+ hour drive isn’t something we can readily do each weekend. Instead, it made this trip much more special. Continue reading
Sometimes photos take your breath away! These are some awesome aerial pictures that help remind us of how small we are, and how connected the world is. Astronauts call it the “Overview Effect.”
The project, founded by NYC-based Benjamin Grant, was inspired by the Overview Effect:
This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once.
Grant strives to give viewers that same feeling by showcasing thought-provoking aerials of places around the world where people have affected the landscape.
The images are beautiful and often astounding—and they really do make you think. A few of my favorite recent images include the Istanbul Shipyard…
…Kuala Lumpur’s palm tree plantations…
…California’s Roseville Yard…
…and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Last night, I went out in search of summer flowers. Having been disappointed at a thunderstorm that dumped rain on the spring blooms a few weeks ago and melted them, I was excited to see that the summer seasonal blossoms were coming into full bloom! Continue reading
Sometimes gardening is messy and unproductive, but other times it can be the most beautiful things in the world. I am a huge fan of succulents, and I’ve spent some time learning about how to grow them and split them into countless mini plants! I recently re-potted some of the sprouted creations and it was so visually-appealing! Continue reading
I could feel the wet moisture in the air as we walked through the basin of the waterfall. I love that you can still feel the wind current of what used to be water in waves in a prehistoric riverbed. Palouse Falls is a special and ancient waterfall that is one of the biggest in the state of Washington. You’d never know it since it’s tucked into a deep canyon and hidden away behind farmland.

Beauty is all around us. From a single green leaf holding a dew drop in the morning to the pink and purple skies of a fiery orange sunset, there’s always much more for our eyes to behold. If you love the beauty of nature and can’t get enough of it, consider yourself a philocalist.
Philocaly: (n.) the love and intense appreciation of beauty. Continue reading
Eat a chocolate. Smell a rose. Hug a tree. Hug a friend.
