The first month of the year is behind us, no idea how that happened but happy to say goodbye to January and hopefully leave the worst of the winter behind. If you follow my blog you will know I have some resolutions for this year, and thought it might be good to share some of my progress with you.
I am proud to say I have been meeting my goals for the year, including number 4: Take more photographs, go on a photo journey around town once a month.
A couple of weeks ago I woke up early on a Saturday morning, excited to start my day because I had planned to go on my first photo journey of the year. I decided to go to the Water of Leith since it is one of my favourite walks in Edinburgh. It was a frosty but sunny morning, and even though I was a bit shy at first I soon became quite relaxed and really enjoyed it. Here are some of the pictures I took:
Having the blog has definitely helped to keep my resolutions and I am happy to share them with you. I have been listening to many podcasts lately and have enjoyed listening to the journey of such amazing crafty people. This has made me realise how important it is to give yourself time to be inspired, to be creative, to be in awe of life and everything around you. I would have never considered myself a creative person before but I have come to find how much I love to have creative escapes in my life, how much I love colour, textures and shapes and how great it is to feel inspired by them.
It is strange but lately I have been feeling as if I’ve finally started to settle in to… well, me. I am realising what it is that I truly like and don’t like, even if it is unexpected or if it doesn’t fit with the way I have always been. I am sure it will keep on changing but that is alright, I just need to keep filling my life with what makes me feel good, happy and relaxed and I will know I am on the right track.
Everything is a journey I guess, a crochet journey, a life journey.

What beautiful, beautiful photos; you’ve certainly captured the mood of a brisk, frosty morning.
Thank you Ruth 🙂 For once I didn’t mind the cold that much!
Gorgeous, all of them! What country are you in?
I’m in Edinburgh, Scotland 🙂 Moved here from Chile, it will be 3 years in June, amazing how time flies! Love it here though definitely colder than Chile!
