I took these pictures of the monarch butterflies up at my husbands cousins house. I am so excited to plant tons of these flowers next year. The monarch's seem to love them.

I sat for at least an hour on the boulder in the middle of their butterfly garden, following the butterflies around...trying different angles. I truly was in heaven. I absolutely love Monarch butterflies. They mean so much to me....for so many reasons....this is why I chose Monarch as the name for my business.

I have been so moved lately when taking pictures. So moved that I often find myself tearing up from the near explosive joy and excitement it brings me. Photography is such a fabulous passion.

While talking to some friends lately about the stress of the business side of things...they have reminded me to focus on loving it....just keep feeling the joy behind it....because that is the driving force to success.

I just wanted to share some of the bliss I am feeling at the moment as I edit a few pics.

Do keep your joy for it, because these pictures I have been looking at are so lovely. Really beautiful. Like art, not just pictures of flowers, or whatever. Art.

Monarchs find their way home. They always find their way home...This is what I love about them, too.
