Fresh flowers are something I actually don't like to receive. It took me about five years to tell my husband that. I know, I'm not your typical girl. For some reason it just seemed wrong to take something so beautiful, cut it, put it in a vase and watch it die. Fresh flowers in bloom are another story. I don't know what kind of flower this is, but it's growing on a bush near the parking lot in my condo complex. When the whole bush is in bloom it's beautiful and was one of the first things that came to mind to photograph for this week's theme.

This is my first attempt at "You Capture" and I'm screwing it up royally. This is an old picture and my husband took it, but it is the very first picture that came to mind when I read that the theme was comfort. This was the most comfortable time in my life. I spent most of the first weeks of my son's life in this recliner chair or in bed just nursing and cuddling. Thinking of those times brings me great comfort when I am dealing my now very loud, energetic, no-time-for-cuddles toddler.
Oh, and coffee. Drinking coffee with a friend while looking at the Blue Ridge mountains is also brings me great comfort!
