Lake Moraine, My Mental Oasis

I have embarked on a new era in Buttercup & Bean. I purchased my first digital camera during my vacation in Canada, and from now on I will be able to share my very own pictures on our blog. I'm so excited, and quite proud of myself for hooking all this up tonight. I know it's only a CD and a usb cord, but still, I did it!

To kick things off, I present to you a photo I took of Lake Moraine, in the Canadian Rockies located north of Banff, Canada:


Pretty fantastic, don't you think? Really, I don't deserve any of the credit. The lake is so gorgeous that it would be impossible to take a bad picture of it.

I've decided to make it my "happy place." You know, the place I can go to in my mind to zen out when I need a mental escape from Dragon Lady and all of the worries of the day. I think it would be a nice image to meditate on as well.

I could have stayed there for hours. Can you imagine waking up to a view like that each morning? I want to go back!

Oh.My.God. I think I'm going to cry. Seriously. That is so damn beautiful. And I get stuck in flat-ass-concrete Texas? And there are places like that in this world? I agree. It is a very perfect Zen place. Good for you!

Holy crap, that's amazing. I'm with Lass -- it could make me cry. It's just... transcendent.
