Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Lush and lovely

Dear Junie,

Love the journey not just the end result. I know you think you have things all figured out- you don’t. I know you think you can’t possibly have a vibrant career- you can.  Life isn’t a dress rehearsal and there aren’t any retakes, so make every day count- do it, do it all!

Love me

Feeling inspired by this lovely apartment building in downtown Portland.

 Sweet perfection

This entrance drips quiet elegance and artsy inspiration. My apartment of choice would be the beautiful balcony to your right. Imagine sipping your morning cup of coffee while tending the flowers. Yeah, I’m already there….

Wishing you a day of inspiration.

New rules

IMG_3138

I’d like to go over the new rules for this blog and life in general.

1. Never grow up

2. don’t take life too seriously

3. be creative

4. love unconditionally

5. love yourself first-everything else follows

6. break away from the old routine

7.  and just be

It may sound a little childish but think about how happy and free you felt as a child!

I wanted to share a few great window scapes I captured while visiting the city of Portland. I love windows of all kinds but window reflections are the bomb. Wow I haven’t used that expression in a long, long time, maybe there’s a reason for that 😉

This pic was shot during an evening stroll. There’s so much to see in this shot, love the lanterns and reflections of the apartments across the street.

The perfect girlie window with tu tu’s and ribbons. Okay, truth time, I broke down and bought something kind of expensive from this shop. Do you blame me?

Here it is my all-time favorite store, Anthropologie- shopping addictions ran wild behind this glass. I was very, very good- I only picked up a couple little books to read on the plane ride home. Pat on the back please 🙂

Just before take-off I flipped through each book and marked a few favorite pages with rumpled feathers I’d gathered on the beach. I love using feathers as book marks, besides they were a lovely reminder of a day at the sea shore.

Don’t forget to follow the rules.

Rule # 4  love unconditionally-piece of cake!

You can never have too many baby dolls- there is always enough love for just one more!
