Summertime goodness . . .

Saw this sign while in Manteo, North Carolina last weekend.
It got me thinking about what is good for me in my own life.
Somehow I decided that would be my thoughts
for my blog this week.
Summer is a beautiful time to slow ourselves down
enjoy what is right in front of us.
I took the time to roam leisurely through a farmers market
The flowers and vegetables were beautiful
Full of color
Giving me inspiration.

Lately everything inspires me!!!
My heart and creativity are WIDE OPEN.
I look at colors and see a watercolor painting
I see flowers blooming and
recognize God's beautiful palette.
No art instruction book can teach this!

I know what is good for me . . . 
Love and Faith, Family, Friendships that are true, Walks on the beach, 
Beauty in nature, A good book to read,  A quiet morning to write,
Time to paint in my studio, Long Sunday naps,
 Traveling to somewhere I have never been before,
Time with my camera in hand
Quality time with my hubby,
Being with my kids (oh how I love them)
Healthy food and yoga time
Watching an old movie,
Living without stress
Alone time with me, myself and I
Art retreats with my girlies
Time in an art museum
Writing from my heart
Savoring every moment of this life.

This week take the time to be open with yourself
Think about the things that are good for you!
Don't take anything for granted
and if given the chance 
Share them with someone 
as I have with you!

  1. I agree whole heartedly with your sentiments Donna, life's made for enjoying, especially the simple things. We take way too much for granted.
