This is a catch-all post for three different fun projects: the Photo-Heart Connection, some journal photos that a group of friends and I are all posting and sharing, and the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I hope it doesn’t get too long!
My choice for the Photo-Heart Connection for July was tough… on the return flight home from Chicago last week, I took many photos of clouds from my little window seat. There were so many different types and colors all layered together and I thought it looked magical. The one below looked sort of like a little tunnel from a stormy situation into brightness. Then I got to my car and was exiting the parking lot and saw the one immediately below, with a lovely rim light giving special contrast to the separation of the grey clouds and the bright blue sky. And I drove through those storm clouds and rain toward sunshine where I got to reunite with my sweet girl.

“Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.” ~ Christina Baldwin
Some friends are doing a party this week of pictures of our journals… we were chatting in our Facebook group about being obsessed with them. I learned I’m not alone in admiring them, buying them, and then not wanting to sully them with my scribblings. This could probably be a post in and of itself, but I already have next week’s posts scheduled so we’ll just include it here.
There’s just a sense of promise, of beginning, of possibility with a brand new and beautifully covered book, don’t you think?
All these pretty covers and yet I began by using boring spiral notebooks…
I have several travel journals where I pasted ticket stubs, brochures, cards, etc. and wrote about all the inspiration I was seeing around me. I even found an old Lira note.
I’m sure you all have a journal or two, right? If you like, share how you use them (or not) and what they mean to you.

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is PURPLE. Well, by the time you read this, I’ll probably be behind again, but here ya go…
My favorite color!
Whew! Have a lovely weekend, friends. Come back on Monday for a post I’m excited to share with you about how a tiny shift in persecutive can change absolutely everything!
