What is Beautiful Through Your Eyes? ~ Lori Portka

This week on the blog I am hosting beauty week. What is beautiful through your eyes?

I want us to talk about beauty, to feel beauty, to be inspired by beauty. Beauty is something that we enjoy with all of our senses. With our hearts. I'll be asking you to join the conversation over on FB and Twitter. I want to know what is beautiful through your eyes. Each day there will be a giveaway, simply leave a comment to enter to win.

Lori, my soul-sister is joining us today. Lori has spent the last year working on A Hundred Thank-Yous. When I think of beauty my mind wanders in so many directions. From the smooth glossy surface of my decaf coffee to the new shade of nail polish I found at Anthropologie. And I think about beautiful work. This project, this gift of beauty and gratitude that Lori has created is magic. It has changed her life and if we all pay attention to this, if we let ourselves understand the depth of what gratitude allows, our lives too will be changed.

I will be a guest at Lori's exhibition and I am filled with joy. Beauty. Beautiful work. Beautiful living. Beautiful Lori.

What is beautiful through your eyes?

Beauty looks like forgiveness, kisses on the forehead, Anthropologie dresses, bright colors, green buds after winter.  

Beauty is what makes me tear up with emotion, what touches my heart and brings me into the moment, grateful and happy.

Lori is giving away to one beautiful person, her prayer flags. To enter to win, simply leave a comment below with an answer to this question:

What word will you whisper today in prayer, stillness or meditation?
