There is a serene

enters into the soul

and delights

and elevates it,

and fills it

with noble inclinations.

I was feeling super-inspired by the Daydream Lily blog today…I love Liss’s style! It’s sooo me! I swoon over dreamy, romantic, soft photography. I have been using instagram on  my iphone for awhile, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photos I got.

I love the effects and the dreamy vintage quality of photos I capture with it. I feel like I’m walking around with my Holga, getting awesomely beautiful lomography shots. 🙂 If you don’t have the app – go out and get it! 🙂

I hope you’ll comment with a  link to your instagram. I’d LOVE to see the shots you are all getting in this gorgeous autumn weather!

Stay tuned, for a great giveaway really soon!

Have a blessed, bliss-filled day!
