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?
Reptiles shed their skin 3-4 times a year. Each time is an opportunity to present themselves in a new way. Every so often, I need to step away, reevaluate and shed the old me so the new me can shine on. (in the perfect world I would get to do that 3-4 times a year too, but let's not get carried away).
Some days you have to step away from what is safe and comfortable and try something new. it is the only way to grow as a person.
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
You can't set goals for the future without paying homage to the past. Here are my favorite images from 2016.
There is just something about succulents that is mesmerizing for me. I love the muted purples and greens and the pattern and shape of each petal.
If I ever start a clothing line, this will be my color palette.
