i've seen it raining fire in the sky.

It's strange. Nature has never been my favourite thing. I am more of an indoor person....choosing the peace and comfort that controlled heating provides. Any opportunity to stay inside is an opportunity I will take. The truth? Earlier this month I had three days off of work in a row. While I accomplished a lot - from cleaning to writing and a million tasks on my to do list - I never left my house. For three days. Yes, I am definitely an indoor person. Which is why it is puzzling that I have been so inspired by nature lately. By striking images, cool wind on my face, and the way sunshine makes fallen snow sparkle. There is so much beauty in the world. And I want to experience all of it.

Nature has become a real source of inspiration to me. For much of the month, I have felt very connected to the earth and all it has to offer. Which is why I have found myself saving photo after photo of nature-themed fashion editorials. There is something striking about high-end clothes, dramatic hair, and bold makeup.....clashing against a postcard worthy backdrop. It has been a very long time since I did an old fashioned inspiration post. So, that is what this blog post is all about. Inspiration, beauty, and of course, nature.

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, 
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby.
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado. Rocky Mountain high.

My life has been full of inspiration lately. And that has been a truly wonderful feeling. I hope these photos have inspired you - or brought a little light to your day.

What inspires you? Do you like these pictures?

  11. These photos are stunning. As a lover of the arts, these make my heart smile! I agree - I'm definitely more of an indoor person. However, this past year I've become obsessed with Iceland (as you probably know) and it's really changed my thoughts. The beauty that is in nature all over the world is incredible. I want to experience it all! The other day it snowed here and I just went outside around 12 am and just watched it. It was so quiet and lit up the dark streets. I'm always in awe and I like to go out and take it all in. Great post!
