We’ve had such a beautiful weekend. Springtime always awakens my spirit. We got busy out in our garden, which we all really enjoy. Nothing better than the outdoors and there is something to be said about “touching the earth” as they say. I find it super soothing.
Some time was enjoyed allowing my creative spirit to roam free and have fun painting. The warmer colours of the glorious sunshine has definitely inspired my choice of colour this weekend. My all time favourite colour is yellow. I have loved yellow every since I was a little girl and will never forget my favourite yellow summer dress. I’m still enjoying the exploration of mixing my illustrative work with my colourful, free-flowing paintings and merging the two mediums.
Many fun times were had playing with our beautiful boys. We read books together, we drew pictures, we sung (probably out of tune), we danced, we cooked, we giggled, we shared and we loved. They are at such a beautiful age now. I keep wondering though, am I going to say this comment with each year as they grow older, wiser, and even more intuitive?! I find I’m repeating myself in regards to this quite a bit. Throughout the weekend we often found them giggling together as in this photo below where Tully was tickling Flynn’s foot with a wooden spoon.
We had such a great time relaxing and laughing with beautiful friends, old and new. I love nothing more than sharing a meal, a conversation and many laughs and treasured memories with my friends. Friends are incredibly special people in my life. I hold them very close to my heart. I am finding though as I grow older, now I have my own family, and life’s pace speeds up and you find yourself juggling everything more and more, that I long for more time to spend with my friends. I wish I could see them all every single week and just share a smile together.
And now as a new week is about to begin, I’m feeling so relaxed, happy & full of gratitude. I’m incredibly happy. I feel loved and supported and so lucky to enjoy all the simple pleasures and happiness around me. That in itself is very satisfying, life’s great!
