Wednesday Thoughts

I ran into my Hallmark store to pick out a birthday card for my sister. Beautiful cards are my thing. They are expensive but a thoughtfully selected card conveys just the right sentiment for the moment. I noticed the slogan on the bag when I got home. "Life is a special occasion." It stopped me in my tracks for a moment. Even though I know it's a Hallmark promotional phrase, I love it! I hope to have this philosophy when I am old and gray ( oh wait, I already am graying)...let me re-phrase this. Throughout my life, no matter how long it lasts, I hope that I have this attitude. Some days are tough to get through and some days are like a beautiful summer breeze.
I was styling some photos for my etsy shop the other day, when I decided to take a few shots just for the beauty of it.
I hope you take the time to make today a special occasion and simply view the beauty around you and love those in your path.

Hello,
I saw you on sweet Ria's blog. Your blog is lovely. Your pictures are so pretty and unique. I was reading about you, and I am drawn to the natural beauty that God created too. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, I went to Iowa years ago, and I thought that the people there were the nicest people ever. I would move there right now if my kids followed me there too. I loved everything about it.
