113/365 - Love is All Around

Today was my first photo tour with Dawn. We headed out towards the coast to Bath, which is the oldest town in the state. When we were about 15 minutes away we found another historic place to stop so we decided to pull off there. We wandered around for a bit and it was really cool. Tons of boats on the water and it was just really pretty. It seems to be a little bit of a mix of historic and newer things... lots of businesses in old buildings which was always cool. This is easily my favorite picture from the trip. I just like how I was able to capture the clouds and how it looks like an almost heart. I didn't notice it at the time, but it makes the picture that much better. Love is all around us, we just have to open our eyes and see it.

Love is one of those things that I think people have some sort of taboo against. For me, I have no reservation when it comes to the word. I bet I couldn't even count how many times a day I tell people I love them. I think the word is underused and I don't know why people are so intimidated to say it. I'm sure I say it a whole lot more than I hear it, but I guess I'm okay with that... it's just part of what makes me Jenni Clark.

Love is more than just a word, an expression. Love can be seen in a child's eyes when they finally learn how to do something. It can be heard in the shrieks of children playing. It can be heard in a baby's laugh. It can be seen in a beautiful sunrise or a snow angel. Love is all around us, we just need to learn to open our eyes and our eyes and see it.

Don't be intimidated by the word.

I love you. Pass it on.
