getting out of this rut

I feel as if since arriving in Georgia all I have done is "relax". This is not the case, but still I feel lazy and that everything I need to do is overshadowed by everything that I want to do. I find that even the things that I want to do though become mundane....I need some inspiration!
(Going hiking today though)

However here are some highlights:

exploring the beautiful mountain ranges.

chillin with my niece, Alyvia.

spending time in Atlanta, GA with my mom.
this is my one of my favorite buildings.

Baking yummy treats. (banana nut muffins)

Finding really really beautiful lighting on something as ordinary as tall grass.
