The Beauty of Simplicity

I grew up in a modest little farming town in South Western, Virginia on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is and has always been a place that I feel I will always hold close and dear to my heart. This past weekend I visited with my mother whom still lives there and was able to take this opportunity to get out and take a few pictures for myself for a change. Something that I have always loved doing when I am there is getting up around 5am and walking along the old country dirt roads that border the parkway and finding people and scenes that inspire me. This particular house with its majestic view and quaint little cat curled up on the front porch reminded me of how important it is to take the time once in awhile to step back and evaluate what is truly important in life as well as the importance of stopping sometimes to just enjoy the beauty of simplicity.
