    Butterflies are proof

    that you can go through a great deal of darkness, yet become something beautiful :) We are all butterflies inside and out no matter our traumatic past :)

    Butterflies, to me, have become a symbol of all

    that is beautiful in my life. Because of you, I'll never look at a butterfly in the same way..."The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough."~ Rabindranath Tagore

    My name means butterfly.

    I am considered to be a social butterfly. I love to collect things that have butterflies. One of my favorite online games I got introduced to in my twenties is a match game where you match butterfly cocoons and when you do, butterflies fly free. The game's animation isn't a flat...

    They Are Like Fairies, Make Me Happy . . .

    I love the way they move, I've always felt connected to them. This summer, a little butterfly fell into the pool, and I scooped it out. Everyone thought it was dead, but it stood up, and was standing in the puddle of water, so I held out my finger and it climbed up onto it. It...

    The Cutest Insects

    I was always very close to my Nana.

    She was more than my grandmother. Nana was my friend, confidant, counselor, advisor, cheerleader and number one fan. Nana loved butterflies. I remember going to her house after school when I was a little girl. She always encouraged me to use my imagination; therefore, instead...

    This fluttering beauty caught my eye as I looked out of the window into my courtyard.  The picture doesn't seem to do justice to the actual color of this butterfly - in sight, it's black with bright yellow stripes.  I don't know why this camera didn't capture it's true colors...

    okay I sounds like a freaking 5-year-old girl

    but seriously butterflies are my spirit animal. I think it comes from my Nana liking them so much. she's always tell me that they were fairies in disguise. sometimes I like to think they are. it makes me feel like my Nana's still with me in a way.

    Chrysalis (kinda Deep)

    i love the concept of the chrysalis-- a small, rather unattractive worm goes away and hides for a while, then breaks free of the prison of its own making, a beautiful new creature.  i think that in that way, butterflies are a wonderful metaphor for our own lives.
