After all this time.

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens
with love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.

Stop Waiting.

My name is Charlotte and I am a procrastinator. 

I like to think of myself as an organized, optimistic and "go-get'er" kind of gal, but I have recently noticed my lack of enthusiasm these days. There are so many things that I want to do, like take more photography courses, go back to university, get serious about yoga... the list never ends. My issue isn't a lack of ideas but it's the delivery of the ideas and the follow through.
I get excited about starting new activities in life, especially gathering all of the supplies (and beyond) that will help keep me organized and on top of everything. It's when the going-gets-tough that I am no longer interested and really lose all confidence in myself. 
I promised myself that this year was going to be different and so far, I haven't let myself down! It has been a slow start and we are almost into April (yay!) so that means that I need to up my game. I need to take every opportunity that is put in front of me or I need to make opportunities for myself. 

2015 is the year of determination and crossing those finish lines, friends!

A Sunday Well Spent.

Happy Palm Sunday, my friends!

Sunday's are my favourite day of the week! It's my designated day to connect with the Lord, get my thoughts in order, having 2 hour long phone conversations with my mother, and taking er' easy. And, it has "sun" in the name, and I love the sun, haha!

This Sunday, in particular, was a little better than the others. Not only was it Palm Sunday (which I totally forgot until this morning) but it was also the first day that it really felt like Spring. 
The air was clear, the sky was blue and the sun beat down in all of it's warm glory. I truly felt like God was with me today. Walking along the path with my husband, myself and our two dogs. In the middle of our walk I stopped and thought to myself: "This is my life. I am truly blessed". It was such a great feeling and I am the first to admit that I do not show my appreciation to my husband, my family, or God as much as I should. I am so lucky to be where I am, to have what I have and to be who I am. And today really opened my eyes to that.

Do you ever have those moments?

Good morning, friends!

"A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. 
When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment we start acting like life is a blessing I assure you it will start to feel like one".

- Unknown

Start each morning with a positive thought. 
Maybe you think about pouring that first cup of freshly brewed coffee (tea for me!) or what you want to accomplish that day. Then proceed to get out of bed, put on your comfiest sweats, and start your day :)

And for many of you, including myself, I know that when you look open the curtains or pull up your blinds, you will see the dreaded "s"-word everywhere. So, I suggest grabbing your favourite fruits, some OJ and yogurt, blending them all together, closing your eyes, and taking a sip of Spring!

Enjoy your Monday, my friends :)

To be alive.

"Suddenly I awake to a stark amazement at everything.. To be alive is so incredible that all I can do is lie still and merely breathe".

- W.N.P Barbellion

Enjoy every precious moment you have on this incredible planet. Spread joy. Laugh as much as you can. Spend time with the one's who make you a better person.
Live happily, my friends.

 Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills
They long have known.
- JRR Tolkien

The East Coast is my home.

Where is your home?

Hi, Hello!
Happy Monday, people of the internet!
" Life is waking up an hour early to live an hour more."

Monday's come way too quickly for most of us BUT that just means that we get another fresh week to be productive, spend time with the ones that we care most for, and try something new! Then, when Friday finally arrives, we will enjoy the weekend more because we know that we have earned it!


What are you going to accomplish this week?

For many of us Canadians and the Northern US, winter has made it's point and we get it already. It seems like spring will never come but it always does!
Soon, the snow will start melting, the grass will start showing and we will be able to walk outside in sweaters and be completely content.
Spring is my favourite season not only because my birthday is in the spring (April 10th!) but because I can feel the happiness in the air. The new moms are out walking with their strollers in packs, people are out for runs and dogs are frolicking around happier than ever that their owners will finally step outside from their winter hibernation!
You are welcome to join us anytime, Spring! 
Life is unpredictable,
It changes with the seasons, 
Even your coldest winter,
Happens for the best reasons,
And though it feels eternal,
Like all you'll ever do is freeze,
I promise spring is coming,
And with it, brand new leaves.

What is your favourite season?

Hi, hello!

I have not formally introduced myself, so here it goes!
My name is Charlotte Buckle.
I was born on April 10th, 1991.
I stand at a whomping 5 feet ..
I was born and raised in the Annapolis Valley in the magical province of Nova Scotia, Canada.
I now live in Western Manitoba with my incredibly rad husband of almost two years (June 1st!), our cat and our two dogs. 
I am testing the waters of photography and decided that I wanted to share my work with the internet and also have this as a visual diary of sorts!

I want to thank all of you who have stopped by my blog and have left comments. 
I appreciate it beyond words!

My soul honours your soul. 
I honour the place in you where the entire universe resides. 
I honour the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
