butterfly wishes {32/52}

The Butterfly is a universal symbol of change, resurrection, transformation, and celebration. Native American legend says that if you whisper a wish to a butterfly, it will fly up to Heaven and make it come true.

I don’t know about any of that, but they sure are magical.

Rice Paper Butterfly


All photos were taken this past Monday, on a wonderful little daytrip with my girl to the Butterfly Conservatory just outside of Toronto. If you’ve never been to a place like this, I highly recommend you go if you ever have the opportunity.

It was like walking into a fairytale.
