the other day after work i was craving some 'ashley time'.(this girl likes her me time) i ran home grabbed my camera and went on my way. since my first favorite spot is closed for the winter i went to my second favorite, utah lake. growing up in utah we went boating every week in the summer. a lot of the time we would go up to deer creek. and when deer creek was too cold we went to utah lake. for some reason i always thought the lake was so gross and it was a lot of the time but i was always afraid a fish was going to come and nibble on my toes when i jumped in the water. over the past couple of years i have fallen in love with utah lake. i have come to have a new found appreciation of its beauty. i love how it is minutes away from where i live. it's beauty gets to me every time i am near it. i always feel so close to god in nature. it's a time to reflect and think about life. i think it's so important to spend time on your own doing what you love. for me that is with my camera, messing around with makeup or choreographing a dance. i feel so at peace when i can go and spend time working on my hobbies and talents.
