In Honor of Earth Day!

Hello All! In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos. Some I took a while ago, some are more recent and taken with my cell phone. I'm not going to go on about recycling or anything...I'm not fanatical. The simple fact is that, no matter your political leanings, or whatever it is that drives you, everyone should care about taking care of our planet.

My mother always taught us about The Golden Rule. You know, it doesn't just have to apply to other people...  treat the Earth as you would want to be treated. It's just that simple :-)

OK, there's my soap box...now, go forth and enjoy this beautiful place we call home!

Taken on a walk in North East, PA...the town, not the region (you wouldn't believe how much I have to explain that!)

A bird nest we happened upon while Geocaching. Note to self, write a post about that hobby.

 Pilot Mountain in North Carolina, last fall.
I love picking berries! This was taken July 2009 at The Happy Berry Farm in Central, SC.
Sunrise on Folly Beach, SC. Doesn't look like it, but it was February and it was cold!
Apples growing at a local farm here in North East. Burch Farms I believe.
Waves crashing on Edisto Beach, SC, taken March 2009.
The Angel Oak near Edisto and Charleston South Carolina. The perfect example of our amazing planet.
I made this collage of favorite Edisto memories for my best friend. I believe the template is by Jen Caputo. Photos are all mine though :-)
And Finally...
I realized I haven't shared one single page of my own on this blog! Since the beach is my favorite place to be, and it is Earth Day, I decided to share this one. I hope you enjoy these photos...I hope they help you remember your favorite things about our planet. I also hope you have a wonderful Earth Day!
