A Warm Autumn Day


I’m late, but not really….the post can wait, the weather couldn’t.  🙂  We had to take advantage of the warm autumn air while we have it.  Warm sun, crunchy leaves, perfect blue sky, breeze that lifts your hair and takes it on a little trip….what could be better in November?  Thanking God; He is so good.  Blessings for your day, and praying you’ve had a great one.   Lisa

Summer Says See You Soon!


I always get a little sad when summer is leaving.  I am a summer girl…love walking outside with no coat, no gloves….love the water…..love the feeling of the heat on my skin and my face.  But whenever I’m sad about someone or something leaving, I don’t say “goodbye.”  I say “see you soon!”  And the things I love are still there, they are just out of sight for a little while.  Meanwhile, I will try to embrace the cooler air and sweaters re-emerging from dark recessed places of my closet.  The wind will hit my face; I’ll breathe deeply; life is a wonderful gift.  Blessings, Lisa

Bridge to Beautiful


When I’m in the midst of winter, sometimes it feels that it will last forever.  But every year, I’m wrong!  Spring and summer come back, the world warms again, sweaters are gratefully put away, and the warmth floods through my body as a tonic.  So on this cold day when we’re calling for 5-8 inches of snow, I need to remember that.  It’s coming.  There’s a bridge leading to beautiful, it will call my name, and I will walk upon it.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa

Summer Over? No Way!

Today is supposedly the traditional “end of summer.”  A bummer statement if ever I heard one.  Well, here at my home, it is still blazing summer hot with bright sunshine, and we’re all still in our happy summer clothes.  And we’re probably going to stay in our summer clothes until the first frosts are upon us, loving every sunny and warm moment we can.  So…in honor of the wonders of summer, here are a few of my favorite photos.  Enjoy your day.  Slainte, Lisa

P.S.  I just realized that I said the word “summer” 5 times in this post…whoops, now I’ve used it six times!  But as I cannot think of a better synonym, there it stands.  🙂
