My latest flower obsession.
I am a very spiritual person. This has nothing to do with religion. You can be spiritual with out being very religious, regardless of what religion you practice. As a spiritual person, and I’m sure I have written about this before, I spend a lot of time on self-introspection and self-discovery. I am always reviewing my life, reassessing my goals and making changes.
Recently, I having taken on a few too many projects and I have been feeling very overwhelmed. It is times like these that I find I need to go to my “sanctuary” places to clear my head and exercise my self introspection. I’m sure we all have those places. You know, where you go to calm down, ignore the stress and maybe forget what your real world is like. It’s a mini vacation from your mind.
Usually just walking outside on a nice day through a nature trail does it for me, but if I really need to step out of myself, I head to the beach. I’m not sure if it’s the salt air, the calming sound of the waves in the background or the whispers of summer, but it’s very therapeutic. Lucky for me, the beach is only an hour away.
Where is your spot?
Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.
Obviously I love taking pictures. You may not want to go out to eat with me.
Sometimes you are just swimming around in circles and not really getting any where.
Sometimes you just need to go away. Run away. Leave the stress behind and forget about life and responsibilities.
Remind yourself about what and who really matters.
Relax with a fun beverage.
And just be present in the moment.
I think that's why I love gardens so much...the silence. Lately, I feel like everyone wants a piece of me, and it's usually because they are not happy about something. When it is just me in a garden...the silence is golden.

Be bold enough to design your life.
Gardening is the work of a lifetime you never finish.~Oscar De La Renta
You pass by an object, a place or an idea everyday, and you only see it for what it is and not what it could be. And then, just one glance, changes your whole perspective.
I love this quote. I am a true believer in just stopping the merry-go-round every once and awhile and just take a deep breath. Breath it all in. Look around. Try to find something good with every day.
It's not necessarily about lemons and lemonade. Sometime when you're having a bad day, and even bad is too strong a word, you just need to go down to the simplistic things you used to love to do as a kid, and remember that feeling.
Each new stage of life may bring on new challenges but also a tremendous amount of opportunity.
You're interesting and you're different and I like that.
I know Spring is out there.
It is inevitable.
I just wish it would get here already!
I must have flowers, always and always
Not sure nothing else really needs to be said.
I periodically go through flower obsessions. I've been through the Gerbera Daisy obsession, the Tulip obsession, the Peony obsession, and the Cherry Blossom obsession.
I usually hate every picture of me, but with the ability to put our lives out for everyone to see, the "selfie" has become so very important. I spend hours practicing in the mirror; the right head tilt, the perfect smile, hair up, hair down, glasses on or off.
Do i look fat?
Do I look tired?
Do I look like I am having way more fun in my life then you do in yours?
That's what it is all about, right?
