Bloom Where You Are Planted

A few weeks ago, when I was stopped in traffic, 
I looked left and saw this:
In a rough neighborhood,
in an abandoned lot,
on a graffitied wall.
from an old pipe,
this little pink flower moved me.
With an upcoming relocation on my mind, it's presence reminded me:
It doesn't matter where you are planted.  Just bloom.

Serious temptation.

It doesn't take much for me to get excited.

Baubles, buttons, and beads- oh my!

All that glittering goodness was almost too much to resist.

My inner conversation went like this:
Kathianne, you have enough glitter.
But it's 50% off!  Look at all those colors!
Kathianne, you have enough.  You're trying to live with less things.
But it's glitter!

Can you believe I left without a sparkling purchase?  
Me either.  I'm so proud of myself.

Happy June

Happy June Dear Readers!  

We just celebrated the unofficial start of summer.
I am a happy camper.  
Welcome sunshine and long hot days.  
Iced tea, lemonade, and popsicles
 (made with 100% fruit juice, of course).  
Hello to sundresses and sandals, 
seasonal fruits and vegetables, 
and collecting shells along the shore.  

Most of all dear readers, 
I wish you lots and lots of blooms.  
Just be sure to stop and smell them too!
