Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Lucky little me...

(leaving Florida)..."ladies and gentlemen,
90 degrees, sun is shining, fasten your seatbelts, settle back, relax,
enjoy the flight"

a mere 2 and a-half hours later...
sky is grey, plane is being bounced around like a ping-pong ball...
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:   "WELCOME TO BUFFALO (yes the Captain is now speaking in capitals)
I HAVE TO INFORM YOU...TEMPERATURE IS -2 DEGREES, SNOW IS IN THE FORECAST." 

What the h*** just happened!

However...look what I arrived home to...


a package from Chiana


a postcard from Jeanne



pretty things


sweet words...

How could they know?

Women taking care of women,
I am so blessed.
You girls are special...love you tons!

  2. Glad you had a great trip J. Even with having to come home to -2 degrees, the little surprises waiting there must have been so nice!

  3. Hello:
    How very stylish all of this is. We particularly love your header image which to us speaks of 'Ladies who Lunch'!!

    The difference in temperature and climate within one, relatively, short plane journey is amazing. We have never visited the United States but are constantly surprised by the diversity to be found within the different states.
