giovanamelo2 One of my favorite things is saying "good morning" to strangers in passing. .

I found this little guy on my walk this morning and I wonder if he feels the same way.

giovanamelo2 Because sometimes you wake up 6am early all ready to take on the day and then you open the door find out everything is cancelled because the outside world is covered in a blanket of snow.
What then?

I ran inside, grabbed my coat and boots, and romped in the snow, watching it stick to my coat. Today is remembering what cold feels like, and the importance of allowing yourself to wonder and be enamored by cold mornings like this.
Adventure friends are the best kind of friends.

giovanamelo2 One of my favorite definitions of this word describes it as “something that has been found again with, renewed delight and interest.” _______________________________________________Today I am thankful for a Creator who so deeply knows us, and allows us to stumble upon things like this. The routine of every day doesn’t have to be ordinary. In my stuck moments, this small word bears the reminder to look at things with fresh perspective.

giovanamelo2 There is so much joy in today.
These blue mountains are a breath of fresh air, but so are flower bouquets, strangers laughing, and people dressed up in red and pink and hearts.

A day trip to North Carolina was a perfect reminder of the beautiful place we live in and the lovely people around me.

giovanamelo2 "You must not ever stop being whimsical." Mary Oliver.
Enjoying this sunshiny winter's day by taking a break from the serious, mundane parts of life. We're finding creativity and chasing sunshine and balancing on train tracks. And laughs, can't forget those. Thankful for these friends of mine.
When was the last time you played outside and let your imagination run wild with the possibilities of adventure?

giovanamelo2 Make Mondays rad.
but seriously how cool is it that on the day of the week that most people dread, we can choose joy, and we can choose to encourage someone, and we can choose to make it a day worth looking forward to?

giovanamelo2 Monday night hangs and downtown hoodrat things.
Mondays don't have to be dreaded. Sometimes all you need is some friends crazy enough to run around in the cold and sing and dance and put on a musical to an invisible audience on a little amphitheater. And then find pretty colored walls like this one to take pictures with. I hope Mondays are always filled with laughs and joy and adventures right where you are.

giovanamelo2 Waking up this Friday with a lot to be thankful for.
From sharing a quiet morning's coffee to those moments of roaring laughter, I get to wake up, and come home to the beautiful people that make our little house feel like family.
I am consistently overwhelmed by the goodness of the Father and how community reflects His love in such a radical way.
We have so much to be grateful for today.

giovanamelo2 So I'm milling about downtown Chatt when I stumble upon this little place, and before I know it, I'm given a history lesson of the building, shown all the little nooks, taught how to spin and dye wool, and exchanged stories with two ladies who sat at the front of the store knitting scarves.

giovanamelo2 How beautiful the notion that these flowers still turn to the light even on the dreariest, coldest winter days.
My heart is so full as I walk in from the snow to a home warmed by laughter and friendship and stillness. Community is a beautiful thing. #family #chasingharshlight #socality #thatsdarling #communityfirst #posttheordinary

giovanamelo2 The lull of sleeping strangers and half full plane brings about the simple reminder to just be still. #thatwindowseatgram #flying #chasingharshlight 2mon

giovanamelo2 Deep in the heart of Texas on an adventure that brings us to pretty downtown walks by the riverside, a lovely dinner with strangers that have become friends, and a runaround in the cold to make sure we made a stop at the Alamo before leaving.

Today has been nothing short of phenomenal and life is so, so full guys.

giovanamelo2 Meet my friend Meng. He is traveling all the way to San Fransisco with his friends for a Photosynthesis Conference.
Who says a 20 minute flight has to be boring? #selfieswithstrangers #texasbound

giovanamelo2 //share a little bit of sunshine today.// As I leave the sunshine state and head back home, this simple phrase comes to mind.
People are all around us. Be kind. We can never know everyone's stories but we might become a part of theirs, and sometimes the littlest things can mean a whole lot.
