messages of love: by nessie noodle


these photos by vanessa (aka: nessie noodle) remind me to look for messages of love wherever i go. i also think it's nice that people are out there leaving lovely messages for others to find in their travels.

vanessa says:

i took these photos almost a year and half ago while on a road trip up to portland, oregon. i had just gotten a new lens for my camera and was 'seeing' the world with new eyes- that and a road trip always opens up the flood gates of creativity! these are some of my all time favorite photos-
the 'you are beautiful' hangs in the hall where i can see it on a regular basis- to remind me that yes , in fact i am beautiful even if I have only gotten 2 hours of sleep haven't taken a shower and have spit up on my shirt- i am still beautiful. the other two just have really great messages- I dig when I find positive words in my travels!


{you can see more of vanessa's photographs on her blog and her flickr page.}


something to think about: how can you see the world with new eyes every day? what little things can you notice that will make a big difference in your experience of life?

*big thanks to vanessa for sharing these lovely photos!!*
