cher à mon coeur

They say "with age comes wisdom!" I would not disagree. 
As each year falls upon me ever so softly I realize more and more it's the little things in life that make me heureux. My mind travels less towards materialistic things and ponders closer to thoughts of fresh picked fleurs or an unexpected smile from a stranger or a hug from a client.

Sometimes the pure simple la vie pleasures go unnoticed or are overlooked. 

This  été I'm focusing on the little things over the big bulky way down ones.

An escape from the high speed highway and the fast paced world. 
If only in my own esprit.
No need to hurry. Slow down. 
Take it nice and easy and follow my coeur. 

Take in all that summer has to offer.
Her warm breeze and beautiful bounty.
She's a loving season and enjoys sharing her many gifts. 

I shall cherish her and nourish my soul. 

The baby wrens are almost ready to fly! 
Next spring about this same time,  the wrens will return to their summer home. The babies will now be adults and have baby oiseaux of their own.  
The tiny seeds have sprouted!
Each time I water the seedlings my anticipation grows as I can't wait for them to mature and blossom.
Sandals and bare orteils appear on tiny chubby feet.  
Fire fly dance in the night. They have no need for a spot light to take center stage. 
A drive through the countryside admiring the beaucoup fleurs in summer bloom. 
A cozy blanket stretched out in the yard at the stroke of midnight. Gaze up towards the stars and dream. 

Ayez un beau jour


  1. that white/pink hydrangea is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen! I'm soooo wishing for those bushes, like lilac, and peonies! but I live in South Florida...I will take your advise today, and bask in wisdom and the little things, yes. sigh.
