Des Moines Sunset

Why are we never satisfied with where we are from or where we live. Home is where the heart is, always. YOU are in control of the atmosphere and environment you live in. We get so caught up in what isn’t happening around us, what is lacking in our living space or what we are missing out on. Take a look around you, beauty and love is all around!

I admit, Growing up I was always embarrassed of where I come from, I thought Iowa was plain and in eventful. I started to expand my horizons and enjoy the outdoors more. I have collected so many gorgeous shots of nature, which has deepened my love for the place I come from. My longing for landscapes and visual memories help me recreate happiness everyday.

You are the creator of your own happiness and home. Put forth loving efforts and receive loving rewards. Never take the little things for granted. Appreciate every part of your nature, you’ll begin to see life’s landscape. When life becomes too much, sit outside to observe nature in your own comfort. Stillness of your own scene will calm your disrupted view. Collected moments like that will refocus your outlook.
Nature is always developing, blooming and growing-just like you should be. Create your own home inside happiness, let it be a reflection of the life you want to live.
Be inspired by where you come from, be nurtured by your surroundings, be the planter of your own garden and be in love with your life!



This is my selfie, I’m trying to be all mysterious, romantic and a little hipster.

My first post, how exciting 🙂


I will start off by giving a little introduction of myself and why i decided to create a blog!

My name is Kelby Arnold, I am from a small town in Iowa… with opinions and aspirations to populate the whole state. My mind is constantly racing, my body always striving to be on the go and my brain in need to absorb new information. I absolutely love learning and meeting new people. I am curious in almost every aspect in my life. I believe people and places shape who you are and have a special meaning in your journey. I hope to travel all around, expand my knowledge of the world, gain experiences to culture me, inspire those I come across and assist those in need. 

I believe you can change someone’s day by a positive expression or encounter. I believe certain messages can move someone and even motivate them; emotionally, mentally or physically. I hope to share my thoughts, struggles, curiosity, meaning and love to those who need it.
