It's here! The magical month of auburn light and cooler nights. Herbs and petals come back to life. And so I happily gather. The beautiful scent of English lavender, basil and rosemary swirled together is just too good. The Hatter... Continue reading

Thank you Deb<3 It's fun to go venture out. I do feel happily content when I am here in the country and really adore those magical moments tucked in my garden. Somehow, time showed me that I shouldn't miss moments with all the people I love too so I'm juggling it. We'll see how I do ;-) Blame Mister Lovee for saying, get out of the nest kid, go experience the whole world, haha! And boy did I ever :-) But don't worry, I'm still myself and love this blog space and would die if I left entirely. I'm finding a new balance of not being such a hermit, which I dare say has done so good for my soul. I guess we need different things at different times in life, let's see how it all swirls up. I'm having a ball and you're right, I should eat the cake too!! Big hugs! <3 <3

Deb, you reminded me of something wonderful that happened to me. See, it usually snows here in the high desert in February. One February a few years,ago I woke up at 2a.m. & it was snowing. I got bundled up and went outside. Everything was white & magical. It was so quiet with the beautiful silence of snow falling. Then I realized that the sky was pink, everything around me was glowing in pink & a faint lavender. It was amazing & glorious & I will never forget it. The silence of the snow, the frosted branches & the pink glow <3 <3
