Monday 28 October 2013


I woke up this morning to sunny blue skies and the crisp, cool morning air wafting in. When you are snuggled up in your warm, cozy bed it is the BEST.FEELING.EVER.
Next step: Reaching over to my cellphone to check what happened on instagram, the blogging world, and now, on Twitter. What a happy surprise: New followers (THANK you!!) and some interaction on Twitter!
Right away I had this silly, big grin on my face. Even before coffee!

That's what I absolutely love about social media. Its ability to give you little bursts of happiness. That and the feeling you are connected, no matter where you are in the world. You could live in the middle of the forest, but as long as you have Wi-Fi, you are part of this big world. It's great.

I'm in a reflective mood today, and also feel very grateful. For the people in my life, my love, my dogs, farmlife. I'm so happy I can finally appreciate all its great points, not only see the work and inconveniences like I used to.

Life is good. Don't get me wrong, it has its rough parts, and I may or may not have cried Saturday night after our dinner party (wine makes me maudlin sometimes) about family stuff. You know how that goes.

But documenting everything like I have since March makes me take note of all the positive little things that happen every day. And there are so many of them!
Coffee in the morning in bed, with the window open.
This amazing autumn we are having.

A houseguest who cleans up for me after the party. (Kalle, you rock!)
Dogs that are overjoyed to see me - every single time I come out.
Gummy bears.
Long, lingering conversations about life over breakfast.
Trees rustling in the wind, with the sun filtering through and creating moving shadows on the living room floor.
Glitter nails.
Taking a million phone pictures.

Yup, October has been a good one.
How is fall treating you?

  1. O the wine or drink maudlin!! It hit our house Friday very hard and took all weekend to dissipate but once in awhile it feels good to purge out all those emotions!

  2. Yes it does! Feels like after a big rain storm, everything is fresh and clean again.
