~ Simple Things ~


The Simple Things in life are the true beauty, hope, and love of our existence ~ the list can and will change daily, but what is important is the ability to appreciate and indulge in these moments.  The incredibly wonderful and beautiful Christina, of the magical and poetic Soul Aperture, is celebrating her birthday today, and in honor of all the glorious things which make her heart sing, I'm celebrating her with a few of the delightful moments which make my days brighter and my soul joyful ~ 

* laughs from the deepest depths of your belly

* sunshine warming your shoulders

* memorable moments made with friends

* a warm cup of smooth coffee

* the way your body absent-mindedly dances to the beat of your favorite song

* the gentle caress of your beloved's hand

* blue polish on my sweet crumb's toes

* the way a perfectly ripened peach drips down your chin

* the fresh scent of rain on a summer afternoon

* a breathtaking sunset while dining outdoors

*  closing your eyes and making a wish

*  warm sand between your toes

Blackberry Picking


"At first, just one, a glossy purple clot

among others, red, green, hard as a knot.

You ate that first one and its flesh was sweet

like thickened wine: summer's blood was in it

leaving stains upon the tongue and lust for picking."
~ Excerpt from "Blackberry Picking" by Seamus Heaney

A PUBLIC Wish ~

All it takes is a vision, a group of like-minded people who put their thoughts, ideas, and plans of change into action.  A movement has started in the U.S. ~ one that not only benefits the environment but also improves health and socialization.  Europeans have proven this brilliant concept equates to a more civilized society, and now we are finally taking note.  

PUBLIC bikes is Rob Forbes' (founder of Design Within Reach) newest venture, and this design based business is on "a mission to help us reduce our dependency on cars and think more intelligently and artfully about the way we get around and connect with our cities and communities". 

I don't know about you, but this is one bandwagon I'm going to jump on ~ and yes, I've already picked out my PUBLIC M8 beauty (in Cream, please) and have added it to the top of my wish list.

Laissez Faire

It's captured, the moment in time when she had her mama's gaze through her papa's eyes.

A moment when it doesn't matter what size bikini you are wearing, but just the fact that you are wearing one.

She rocks our world.

Our Summer will be fabulous.

Here's to a lovely holiday weekend filled with blissful laissez faire!
