We went to an Alice in Wonderland tea party today and these were two of the many ornate party favors.
I was so impressed by the small details and coordinated decorations. Our hostess did an amazing job and showered us with love and attention.
I am inspired!! How about you?
Thank you CM for opening up your home and planning such a fun gathering for your PEO sisters.
Life is good.
I have the best husband! He makes his own bacon, creating his own rub and cures the pork belly for a week, and then smokes it on the Traeger. This morning he cooked it in the smoker for us for breakfast and it was so delicious! I think we could start a bacon business because it is that good! Love you honey!! Thanks for spoiling me.
We were shopping at the Stanford mall this afternoon and enjoyed the beautiful floral arrangements in the corridors. Here are a couple of my favorites.
Beauty surrounds us.
I love this place because it’s beautiful, well maintained and aesthetically pleasing. It’s fun just to walk down the street and to admire the plants, displays, fancy cars and fancy people. I love looking in the windows of the shops and to admire all the creativity and beauty.
Here are a few things that caught my eye today and made me smile.
This reminded me of our trip to Turkey. I love the detail and light reflecting on the wall. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Pretty pink potted flowers.
This whimsical elephant in Anthropologie made me smile and stare for awhile.
I am in love with succulents right now, especially wall art succulents like Wendy made for her backyard. These are hanging inside the Splendid store.
What brings you joy? You know that feeling where you can’t stop smiling just because you are?
Here I Am.
It’s what this blog is all about. Finding joy in the moments of living and enjoying all that is. I choose to share my (positive) moments to remember and to hopefully inspire you to live in your moment too and to focus on all that is good.
I so appreciate the beauty and love and friendship that is shared with me and surrounds me – the best that life has to offer. I wish the same for you.
Photos are from Carmel Beach tonight, just before sunset.
Life is good.

It’s Day 12 of my gratitude gift giving and today I am giving thanks for the beauty of nature that surrounds us.
I keep smiling as I watch how the trees are changing daily.
I’m admiring the small blooms in my yard and appreciating the colors that brighten our yard.
I’m loving the light shows as the sun rises and begins to set.
And I’m aware, which is really cool, because how often do you really pay attention to your daily surroundings? The leaves are falling now and the grass is covered in colors of fall.
Life is beautiful, especially when you see.
Do you see what I see?
What do you see in your part of the world?
Hello from beautiful Silicon Valley. TGIF
Here are a few scenes from my day outdoors.
I hope you’re inspired to go outside and explore.
