Find Joy- Favorite Places #SundayStills #Photography


Find Joy however you can

Many of us are scared of what is going on in the world and frustrated with the restrictions this unseen enemy has placed upon our lives. But I challenge you to go through your photos and find the places, or things, that bring you joy. Soak up that feeling and don’t give up- we are in this thing together {{hugs}}

Sunday Stills- Favorite Places

Sunday stills is a weekly challenge created by Terri Webster Schrandt. This week she chose FAVORITE PLACES. Stop by and join the challenge here.

Cherry Blossoms against a cerulean blue sky

I’m blessed to be living in my favorite place. DH and I were both born and raised in north-western Alberta, against the shadows of the Rocky Mountains. Winters tended to last seven-to-eight months and could be incredibly depressing if you weren’t into snow sports.

Our summer holidays were often taken on Vancouver Island, Canada’s rainforest. We fell in love with the land and the people and dreamed of one day living there.

Imagine my joy when that dream became a reality!

See the resemblance? DH posing, lol

We may be stuck at home, but photos are a wonderful way to lift our moods.

Stay safe everyone!

  2. How wonderful for you, Jacquie. Fulltime RVers–that is beyond cool. And I like your husband’s look. That’s my kind of guy (my husby is similar).

    I love all your pictures, Jacquie:) The thought has occured to us to go live in our trailer somewhere. Looks like a beautiful spot!
