#tbthursday to my very first #ichoosebeauty picture five years ago next week! As we celebrate the anniversary this month, I thought it would be fun to show you the photo that started it all. I took this pic on a walk during a work break in Columbus, Ohio. I remember thinking how hard it was going to be to find beauty on a dark and cold winter day, but then I challenged myself to find something. And there it was – a striking red bush contrasted with a blanket of pure white snow. That’s when I realized that there was beauty in every day if you choose to look for it.
