Photo of the Day | Little Things

"Half the joy of life is in the little things taken on the run... but let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us." I challenge you today to simply pause. If only for a moment, let everything else fall out of focus and cherish your small joy before it flits away.

Dasia the Senior Rep 2013 | Plant City Photographer

Here in Florida, summer evenings mean pretty much three things.... rain, rain, and more rain.
