sinking sun


An explosion of color. It’s almost like something out of a fairy tale -- a blend of blues, purples, and oranges that rise into a warm crescendo of raging colors. Light and dark blue battle for a few minutes, and suddenly the navy wins over and the sky is cloaked in an overpowering sheet of darkness.

It is only a matter of hours before the sky is painted a baby pink again. The sun peeks out from behind the horizon and greets the day with a splash of orange color.

  7. Arushee, girl, the way you play with words, twisting them and binding them into a beautiful knot of sophisticated, gorgeous literature. I don't know if I'm even making sense, so let me put it more simply: you have amazing writing talent.
    And that sunset picture is beautiful.

  13. Hey! How are you doing? I just wanted to let you know that I have decided to make/sell blog buttons.
    I was inspired by Miss Shelby's new blog "Every Bit Of Lovely". ( Her blog is so colorful
    and cheerful that I decided to make a button for it. It was really fun and it's actually on her blog now.
    Anyways, Lately I have been trying to think of different ways to
    raise a little bit of money and this is one that not only helped me raise some but is also a lot of fun. So, I looked online and
    to buy a blog button was about 20 to 25 dollars or so. Now, I'm not a professional or anything and if you ask me, that's a
    little much. So I'm going to be selling the buttons for 5 dollars each. I'll have a page on my blog soon ( Digital Diary)
    but you can just email me if you want one. What it will be is, I'll have you answer a few questions like the color
    you want, pattern, anything special, etc. Once you answer those I'll make your button and send it to you. If you don't
    like it or you want something a little different then I'd gladly change it for you. Once I email it to you, you would send
    me 5 dollars in the mail. Also, If you want to buy like three or more for maybe one for you and suprise your friends with
    some, give it to them to be nice, for there birthday ect. Then I'll give you a better deal.So, how does that sound? Please
    tell your friends and I would love it if you would share it on your blog! (If you do then please let me know and I'll
    check it out!) Thanks! Hopefully I can get a few orders.

    Have a blessed day everyone!
