– I decided I wanted to start my first official beauty blog off on a different note. Im sitting here, at the computer…trying to think of a great ice breaker..something whitty, something fun, something mildly amusing..something I would enjoy reading. Obviously nothing sensational came to mind, and telling jokes isnt my strong point…because all I could think of, the only thing I could wrap my brain around is…“WHAT IS BEAUTY?”  Is “beauty” the right shade lip gloss? Perfectly curled hair? Designer handbags? Is” beauty” sunsets? Ancient paintings by Masters? Compositions and concertos by classical composers? Maybe “beauty” is the love between a new mother and her child? The innocence of a first love? The wisdom in a grandparents eye? What is YOUR definition of BEAUTY?!
For me, beauty is…
  • The colors dried on my palate after a night of painting. The intermixing of colors in the height of artistic expression are sometimes more appealing, more beautiful to my eye then what was actually produced on my canvas.
  • The sound of a baby laughing. There is nothing more sweet, nothing more precious than a true laugh from a beautiful little one. The beauty of innocence.
  • The waves crashing on a silent beach. The world is so big, and has so much to offer..my problems and challenges seem so small next to the beauty of Mother Earth.
  • The sound of my church throughout Worship. The voices all singing together, loud and united. Sometimes I find myself being silenced, with my eyes closed, just to embrace the power…the beauty of the Lord.
  • Looking in the mirror and being proud of what I see. Not pride in my eye liner, my skin tone or my hair color…not my outfit selection, my fake eye lashes or high heels..being proud of who I am beyond all that. The confidence in the person I have become, and the pride I have in dropping my insecurities and telling myself I am beautiful. The BEAUTY in my life, in myself and in and my spirit, I’ve found is to be the most beautiful of them all.

I think beauty is all around us, and beauty can be found in EVERYTHING. My passion for my quest for capturing “beauty” is never ending! I’ll end my first blog with this.

What is beauty to YOU?
