How are you doing today!?!?! Were you affected by the massive winter storm!!??
We are snowed in today......very cold and windy too!
Not my kind of weather...but you already know that:)
It's been a tough winter....the kind of winter where I am going to appreciate the first nice day we have. And I mean REALLY Appreciate!
The kind of winter where it's taken everything in me to remain chipper and positive....
The kind of winter that just plain wears you down......
but you know what....it hasn't broken me....
in fact...this is the first winter...that I decided I would own it...rather than winter owning me:)
I got busy with Simple Daisy and working in my little studio.
Each day .... I race home from work...pour a glass of wine...turn on the french cafe music...close the blinds...light the candles and just pretend that winter's not really happening:)
I have tried to look at it as an opportunity ...
an opportunity to have the time to work harder on Simple Daisy...
I am not as likely to sit inside in the summer:)
Always remember....that we can CHOOSE the way we view the world!
Do you see opportunities or failures!!?
Do you see the way the sunlight dances on the snowcovered ground or do you see misery!?!?
Do you see how beautiful you already are or do you see the gray in your hair!?!?
Each and every day is a gift! Each day is an opportunity to find something to be happy about!
Each day is an opportunity to move closer to the life you imagine! Everything is a choice:)
and when you feel yourself getting just plain tired of something in life....for me it's the snow!
do something that will make you happy!
I grew grass:):)
I just NEEDED to see some greenery! Amazing just how much you miss the smell of fresh cut grass in the winter! ANd yes....I do cut the grass so I can release it's beautiful scent! Makes me very happy!!!!
I also made some of those little burlap rosettes!! I think they are super cute!!
You can find tutorials all over the internet.....but basically you just cut strips of burlap about 2 inches thick and fold it in half and twirl and glue....twirl and glue!
And the burlap "spring".....well just cut triangles out of the burlap and glue the triangles onto twine! Paint the letters!!!
Just a tiny something to bring a little cheer to the long winter days!!
What do you do to bring a little cheer to your winter days!!!
Are you the kind of person that loves the simple things in life!?!?
