Moments of gratitude

We had our first snow storm of the year on Friday night. It was so pretty and soft when I woke up Saturday morning. It wasn’t easy to go to the grocery store, but instead of being upset for all the trouble I noticed few things to be grateful for.

my water proof and super warm boots
hubby and his big red shovel opening the path for me
the evergreens from my neighbour front yard covered in snow perfect for few shots.
the crunching sound when I walked on the snow, it’s so relax for me
the beauty of my street

It is still snowing right now, I can see from my desk the snow flakes dancing outside. Hope the roads will be ok tomorrow morning to go to work.

Have a great week!

November is here with its the coziness and colours. It’s time to reflect and be present. It’s also the gratitude month. A long time I don’t write a gratitude list, I think about things I’m grateful for, but I haven’t put them on paper. Now it’s the right time for it.

Have a blessed November!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

august moments

august 31st! already? oh yes, this month is in hurry! i haven’t done much, but i’m enjoying each moment and beauty around me. little pleasures, ordinary moments, simplicity, and gratitude are what i look for day by day.

i enjoy the sunrise while drinking a cup of coffee in the morning and in the evening i  watch the sunset by the river.

my garden is blooming with roses,

the library in my city has many wonderful books, i can get almost any book that i want in there!

my creativity is slowly coming back.

and you? how is your summer/winter going on?

hugs,

Gardening

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature.

To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.”

Voltaire

I’ve to confess that this year I didn’t dirty my hands with soil. Hubby did all the work of adding new soil and seeding the gardens in our backyard.

Now,  I’m doing my part. I touch and talk to the plants. I’m nurturing them and at the same time, they are nurturing me. I can’t forget to tell you I’m a tree hugger too!

Have a great Saturday!

Love,

E.

December vision board

hello my dear friends from all over the world. we have a lovely sunshine morning here in my part of the world, and the news is that we will have a white christmas.

i make a vison board for every month (of course, if you follow me for long you know it), this is my december one that I made yesterday. november wasn’t an easy month for me, lots of up and downs, and i almost lost my true-self a long the way. i’m in a process of recovering mind and body. somethings are clear now in spite of all the darkness that had laid on me. more than ever i’m grateful for each moment, for being here and now.

few things for december:

  • practice gratitude daily
  • enjoy the beauty of the holidays
  • cook/bake lots of good stuff and savor each bite of them
  • keep (or better, rescue) my focus on simplicity and minimalism
  • and the most important of all: enjoy my family and enjoy myself

wishing a wonderful december to you.

hugs and love,

E.
