to refresh your memory, here is where we last left off… and here are some recent fotos, taken last month.

by the way, obviously this has taken more than 14 days… it’s merely the way i’m keeping track of the whole project here on the blog… you get it, right?! 😛

{the dichotomy of audrey michelle}

14 Jul

first of all, i just want to send a quick shout-out to all the newcomers… i’m always humbled whenever a new follower joins the fun!  welcome to food and foto and thank you for your support! ❤

i just love this shot from the archives, taken by my friend michele when i first moved back to colorado in 2011… it’s been 3 years, almost to date.  i do love parts of this great state – especially the mountains, the peaceful sound of the nothingness in the air, and the sunsets.  however, there is such a dichotomy to my personality.  i miss the city – the hustle and bustle, the lights, the diversity, the people.

i miss new york more than i ever thought i would. it’s kind of funny how i always say i went there to pick up a piece of me…. and yet – i feel like when i moved, i left a piece of me there…

{foto friday : those noisy neighbours, again!}

i love waking up and seeing this…

sometimes i feel like i have more conversations with wildlife lately than i do with humans. i’m not complaining; i talk to anything that has life or energy – so, i pretty much talk to everything 😉

this family of elk live in my ‘hood and they have recently been grazing the grasses by where i walk home every day… sometimes i see them, sometimes i just see their poop.

image

but i do believe they are starting to recognize me!

sometimes they just stare back at me… i inch closer, snap another foto, and they just stare.  i do believe they know who i am now, and they know who my camera is, as well. the little fawns i’ve been seeing are just heart-melting, too!

let’s all take time this weekend to unplug – connect with your true source, with nature. hug a tree, smell the roses, look for bumble bees, stare at the clouds.  get lost in the beauty that is around all around you… ❤

{animal energy}

26 Oct

animals {and all of nature} can teach us so much about awareness.  they can teach us about patience, presence, process, and perfect magic.

animals behave from instinct, not from thought.  i find it comforting when an animal crosses my path.  i feel their energy offers us much insight into a greater cosmic awareness.

so, here are a few friends i made recently :

this was the “little caterpillar that could” – i watched him patiently inch across the street just in time before a big truck came rolling through…

image

this dog followed me all the way into town one day… and right after i took this foto, i looked up and a huge raven flew over my head.  {talk about magic!}

lots of cattle surround these hills and they have so much room to play! Continue reading
