A Place of Calm...

It is that time again to join in with so many on Memories Captured founded by Galit of These Little Waves and Alison of Mama Wants This! 

I love the creativity that is inspired by this project. As life goes by us, we take lots of photos but do we truly capture the memories that were behind each one. Pausing for a minute and adding some words to a picture can make it come to life and never let is slip away.

The picture I chose is of my husband in a race on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Being on the water is my husband's true passion. I know it is where his mind can let go of the daily grind and find a place of calm.

My husband with his racing buddies

Oh swoon, girl! I love that he's following his spark!

(We all should, yes?)

That quote is so true, girl! There are plenty of things that I look back on and say, hmmm if only I had the huevos to do this...

Happy Friday!

I should keep that quote in mind. My husband also loves the water, but his medium is the surfboard.

Yes, so true; some of my best photo albums are those I "narrated" so to speak. You've motivated me to start doing this again!

GREAT picture, and I love the quote!! Rock on, husband!!

Great pic and a wonderful quote! I had never heard that one before, but it rings so true!
I need to stop being afraid of failing at things I want to do and grab life by the horns! Thanks for the reminder!

Wow! What a great picture and a perfect quote to go with it. Nice work!

Oh, I love this!! It so makes me want to go sailing. I've never been on a sailboat.

This is so cool! I've never been on the water like this. It looks so exciting and so calm. An odd contrast, I think.

That quote is so perfect for this photo! You're right that it brings it to life!
