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

Summer lovin’

Just a few reasons why I love summer…

What could be better than running through the sprinkler in  a pink bikini?

Playing in the rain.

Splashing in the water table.

Raindrops on roses.

Enjoy the sunshine!

Seeing things from a different perspective

IMG_3204 3

 

I decided that today was the perfect day for a little extra color, something a bit unusual. So I digitally painted this otherwise tipical image of a  sunflower in hopes that just maybe it would brighten up an oh so grey fall day.  I love the passionate blues and cozy butter tones, it’s fresh and new. Michigan isn’t known for its sunshine but I have to say I don’t ever remember a year with more grey days and bitter temperatures than this one.

I’ve decided not to let the grey skies paint my mood. So today as I’m driving my car, running in and out of buildings and going about a normal day, I’ll keep my eye out for little bits of  color and inspiration where ever I can find it.  I wonder how different things could look if I changed my focus just a smidge. Just now looking out my window I notice how green the grass looks in the absence of sun. Perhaps those grey lifeless skies will be the perfect backdrop for a wide array of fall colors or maybe I’ll be surprised by a few snowflakes quietly falling on my windshield. The forcast is calling for a few flakes. I’ll let you know how this little experiment or shift in attitude works out.

Enjoy your day from a different perspective and see what happens.

Spring, tiny toes and a new attitude

img_3103

 

It’s a morning of beautiful light and spring like temperatures. A day of yard work and fresh air has made this body a little sore but no matter- I have a bottle of Advil handy. There is nothing like a day of fresh air and sunshine to change my attitude which was in serious need of change after a very long winter.

Do you all remember me ranting about wanting to create a romantic garden space of twinkling lights and lush plants that protect a secret spot to cozy up for the night? Well, I don’t think all that’s  going to manifest itself this year but I did manage to get a little cozy cottage  (6’by6′) to place in my garden. When I get the landscaping and decorating done ( yes, I decorate everything) I’ll let you have a peek.

I mentioned in the previous post that I was starting an e-course today.  We are 165 people taking an Unravelling  journey together. I’m both curious and excited to begin the journey and meet new faces.

I hope you get the chance to take a walk outside and wiggle your toes in the grass or dirt.

Yes, I’ve noticed that I have little Pebbles Flintstone feet. I’ve heard that said just a few times.

Enjoy your day!
