Speed is my middle name… I talk fast, ( funny because I am southerner) walk, eat and think way to fast. It creates an anxiety atmosphere for sure. Sometimes that little voice whispers slow down. Well this week the voice said slow down and take some pictures at Rotary Park… This path was a reminder to me when my family was very young we would cycle this path But now the children are off making there way in Life and I need to slow down and inhale natures boundless beauty.
Capturing everyday beauty… Take time to appreciate the immediate aesthetics around you… This is the view from my dining room window.. I am always aware of the beauty surrounding me and I am happy that I possess a handy tool.. Aka the
I wish I had posted the before pic. So try to envision a flying saucer hovering over the table. Very contemporary. We have a huge River Rock fireplace that also competes in the space. I love the new fixture . Small changes offer big impact. Plus the window had dark wood blinds. I found these golden velvet curtains for a steal at ROSS! I plan on putting a champagne colored sheer in the middle of the curtains.
I love finding the perfect polish for the changing of seasons. I am very open to everything when it comes to my toes. This shade is #OPI New Date at the Golden Gate.. It has the trademark color of a rich burnished orange. So Perfect for Fall Weather.. Ladies if you are wearing ooen toed shoes please please have well groomed feet..
I love to try new recipes partly because I tend to get bored with food. I scored a homerun with this SweetPotato coconut soup with brown rice and lentils. My husband
rated it a 10. Thats a big deal because we are a very competitive couple. This soup is meatless and pretty healthy. The textures and savoriness is amazing . It is a bit labor intensive but well worth the endeavor.
I took these photographs December 2013. We decided to take the week before Christmas and decompress. Ocrakoke Island is very desolate in the Winter and so perfect for mental unwinding. You have to arrive by Ferry which adds a bit of special allure… My family found the most adorable bungalow . Much wine and book pages were consumed that week. Sometimes busy crowds of people does not lend itself to powers of recuperation.. I highly recommend vacationing in the winter here for a bit of charging the tired batteries.
