Creative Crush: Simplicity with Kimberly of Around the Table at Blackberry Farm
Each Friday, a special blogger friend shares their current Creative Crush – whatever is cause for inspiration at this very moment. This week, I’m happy to have Kimberly from Around the Table at Blackberry Farm and Kimberly Taylor Images. She was another Alt roomie and an instant friend. Kim is whip-smart, funny and oh so talented with that camera of hers. Her crush on simplicity was a much needed reminder for me this week. I’ve been soaking in these images and taking deep breaths all morning. Thanks, Kim.
Lately, simplicity has inspired me. I find people and images that really “see” the beauty in the everyday moments around us tend to make my heart beat a bit faster. I am blessed with a friend that I met in my favorite place – France – last year. From the moment I met her, I was drawn to her calm peaceful manner and her incredible outlook on the world around her. She is so full of love and of kindness, and since meeting Nadia, I have enjoyed reading each and every post that she shares on her blog – La Porte Rouge. Her images are often haunting – their lighting magical. She lives in her personal little slice of heaven with her husband and a menagerie of beloved animals. She truly sees the beauty around her – taking long silent walks in nature to listen to the life her countryside holds. Every time I read her beautiful words, she inspires me to slow down and find the beauty in the silence that is around me. I find I tend to carve out more time with my own animals as of late, and see simple things that I hadn’t truly noticed before.
