Timely really, that this little beauty would just go and shoot itself right out of nowhere in the middle of our back lawn.. Mr Right, with mower engine roaring, called out "Can I mow this?" on the weekend...That was before she had blossomed...The girls and I screeched "Nooooo"... Knowing what the green weed looking plant was about to bestow on us..
Reflective... is I guess what you could call this state of mind that I have been blessed with over the past couple of months.. Funny, how as you get older, experience more life, work, love and relationships, that your state of mind just, well, gets reflective... mmm.. Is it just me?
This blog started as a place to document our move to the country, the construction of our home, White Verandah, and some life along the way... What happens here, on this blog, in White Verandah is all real... Our life.. Of course there are parts that you dont see, you dont hear... I am a normal mother of 2 babies, working part time, wife, friend and housewife...
I do, what most every mother blessed with babies does.. housework, washing, sorting out tiffs between the girls, disciplining them and guiding them, navigating marriage and parenting just like the rest of us...and along the way trying to live in the moment and in love...
The house is almost complete..And there is so much more to share with you...The flavor may change around here..but my love of pretty stuff, houses, design, interior design, photography, etc doesn't change...
But i may dare to share some reflection with you...
about life, love, parenting, building, gratitude..
And this little beauty, in a reminder as I look out the kitchen window every morning and afternoon, that I am growing, learning, thankful and loving this journey..
I am delightfully happy right where I am.. Planted in the middle of the green hills
I am where I should be, here for a reason, meeting the people i need to meet, learning what i need to learn and experiencing what i need to experience...
Despite my heart skipping a beat every time I drive into the drive
It is this sight that truly fills my cup.
Finding beauty in nature which is so easy to do around these parts..
Trying to reduce my material wants, opening my eyes to what is already here is abundance.
That's my reflection for today..
Special little shout out to a reader that complimented White Verandah recently..
I'd lost my way abit with the blog... Building almost over and all.. But I am inspired..
Thanks for coming past, Melissa.. xx
