A Happy Detour


A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour. - Author Unknown

I took a detour today (of sorts).

On my way I got to enjoy:
Sparkling diamonds scattered across a lake.
Blue sky as far as my eyes could see.
Streaks of yellow sun warming every single inch of earth around me.
And, every color imaginable via plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, and more.

A very happy "detour" it was.

  4. This place sounds like paradise! I often think that the trip is not about the destination, but the journey along the way. And sometimes the journey is completly secondary! I'm glad you found this amazing beauty in your day!

  6. More gorgeousness from Stacey. You did apply a "paint" filter to this didn't you? It works perfectly.

    Detours can be frustrating. It's a good thing if you can take the time to kick back and enjoy the view.

  17. Sounds like your happy detour put you on the right path Stacey Dawn! It's so hard to sometimes stop and remember to look and pay attention to what is all around us. Sometimes we miss all this beauty without knowing it!

    Have a Happy weekend!

  18. What a beautiful photo Stacey Dawn! :o)

    These days I feel like my life is on a detour. I am trying hard to enjoy the ride... some days yes and some days no. But even when I'm worried because I don't know what will happen, one constant is that the scenery is absolutely fantastic. :o)
