But November has been a breath of fresh air before heading into winter. The change in seasons stepped back for a bit to let us enjoy a gentle transition.
The bright colors of the leaves only lasts for a few weeks, so I like to take pictures and notice the differences. The type of light and shadows. The blue of the sky. The fluffiness of the clouds. Each day, even minute to minute, there are subtle changes.
The contrast between yellow autumn leaves and pink summer flowers is striking. Within a couple of weeks, they will mostly be gone.
Have a good weekend!
Here are some recent pictures from Instagram. Everything is in bloom and I am loving it!
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
By the way my eyes have been watering and my throat has been feeling scratchy, I think my allergies are starting up again. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some budding trees this week.
When I went grocery shopping yesterday, there were so many flowers on sale that I couldn’t resist getting a few bunches. It can at least look like spring indoors right? I got tulips, hyacinths and hydrangeas. The fragrance is wonderful.
I really had to restrain myself from getting more. The daffodils and ranunculus looked so pretty too! Maybe next week. I separated the bunches, then made two bouquets. I kept one and surprised my mother with the other one this morning.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Thanks for stopping by my new blog home! I’m still getting used to things over here, so it will take me a bit of time to get up to speed. But I am loving this new space!
Thank you so much to Donna at Wicked Simple Marketing! She designed this new site and was wonderful to work with. All the random stuff that I showed her and we spoke about, she has brought to life.
The plan in my head was to have the perfect introductory post all wrapped up and ready to go last night at the stroke of midnight. But my time on the planet has shown me that sometimes you just have to go with the flow. That’s what I’m doing today.
As I enter this new decade, I’ve found some inspiration from a few recent news articles.
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” ~ Nora Ephron
“I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life — and I became that woman.” ~ Diane Von Furstenberg
“If you’re creating anything at all, it’s really dangerous to care about what people think.” ~ Kristen Wiig
I love the model Cindy Joseph. She wasn’t discovered until she was 49 and is still going strong at 63 years old! When she was asked to give advice to women who want to be happy, healthy and beautiful, she gave some great advice. It’s now another favorite quote.
“Live your life according to you and what gives you pleasure. That way you will trust your intuition, follow your dreams, and take care of your body and spirit.” ~ Cindy Joseph
Her words are sounding pretty good to me!
