Daily Lovely Update

So remember that New Year's Resolution I made to take a photo of something lovely, daily, in 2012? I'm 5 months in and so far so good. Here are some of my recent favorites:

I've enjoyed this project so far. I like to think I have always noticed the little pops of happiness in life, but this is forcing me to take an even closer look, and I think it's been a very positive experience. It's also definitely easier to find the lovely in the nicer weather this time of year. But, nice weather or not, some days are harder than others.

Here's hoping I make it through the rest of the year! Follow the project at
