Late Bloomer

With summer in full swing I’m getting a late start on the flowers in our yard this year. Our vacation trip and then hail the last couple of weeks really got us behind. But the planters look adorable and the Yuccas finally bloomed for the first time (this is their third season).

I received the high compliment that the arrangements look California-inspired… Been tough getting back to the grind so maybe the change of scenery will help to ease me into it.

Perspective

I remember reading a challenge in my 5-minute journal, “get rid of something that doesn’t bring you joy”.

And have had guidance from various places to “water your love garden”, and “water your lawn” (to make it greener).

I’m ready to jump right in – crazy leg first!

It’s time to finally cultivate all the hard work, collect the bits and pieces that are laying around and create some forward momentum.

The winds of change are a blowin’, girl… just gotta hang on tight!
