Summer Colours ~ Green Day

I've so been enjoying Summer Colours week on Flickr. Thank you to Poppytalk for creating this great photo group! We've already had pink day and yellow day. Now it's Wednesday, and the emphasis is on the many shades of green, from emerald to lime to mint and every other shade in-between.

For the rest of my green images -- and all of the others in this inspiring gallery -- go right over to Summer Colours and check them all out!

My 100th Post & Summer Colours

I just realized that this is my 100th post! Wow, that's a milestone. I need to thank my friend Silke at Metamorphosis, because she is the person who got me interested in blogging. Although I do not post as regularly as she does, I've found the blogworld to be a lovely place to connect with people from all over the globe. Whenever I need some creative inspiration, I turn to my blogger friends, and they never disappoint.

Speaking of inspiration and blogland fun, I'm participating in Poppytalk's Summer Colours Week. Yesterday was pink day, and I'm proud to say that Popppytalk chose my pink sunset photo for inclusion in her highlights of the day.

Today it's all about yellow. Here are some of my yellow photos.

You'll find more here.

I like having something like Summer Colours to focus on. It's positive, it's inspiring, and it gets the creative juices flowing. What I have realized time and time again is that it really is the little things that add up to making a rich, fulfilling life. Maybe taking a few photos and posting them on the Web doesn't seem like a life-changing event. But having that positive focus -- both for the folks participating and the ones who are viewing the gallery -- can make all the difference.

Here's hoping you have a bright Tuesday filled with plenty of small but happy moments! Thanks so much for reading Beth's Take on Life!

A time for weddings

[Julie & Rico's wedding]

I've attended 2 weddings in the last 2 weeks, and they were both love-filled and lovely. I'll be talking more about weddings soon, but for now, here are just a few images from these recent happy occasions.
