These are two of my favorite pics from when we went to Yosemite in 2008. The first picture is Bridal Veil and the second one is part of Yosemite Falls.
I love waterfalls and every time I see one I light up. It’s a combination of the crisp smell of the water, the feeling of the light mist softly landing on your face, the powerful roar in the background, and the tranquility I feel when I’m infront of one that makes me smile and gets me every time. I love pretty much anything having to do with water. Swimming, rivers, pools, and yes, even washing dishes.
Every memory I can think of associated with water brings a smile to my face. When my brother and I were little kids we would spend hours swimming in our pool and I would imagine that I was a mermaid and i would create this beautiful underwater world. In High School swimming would always appease my heart and mind. Even during the most exhausting swim practices, I loved how the water felt around me and how my fingers created soft waves.
And when I think of these two waterfalls I think of the day my husband and I got married in Yosemite at the cute little chapel and how no other place could have been more beautiful for us.
What makes you smile?
