And, so my May expedition began; when my beloved journal and I settled in on the patio a few evenings ago. All I can say is, “Time well spent!” The greatest take-aways from this activity were the feelings of thankfulness and accomplishment that embodied me afterward. An added bonus: it was also a beautiful evening—a wonderful time to quietly reflect while being in nature.
Below are a few photos capturing some of May’s many wonderful moments. Hope you enjoy! T.
Took a few, added moments to admire my potted pansies, one day,
while at home on a quick lunch break from the 9 to 5.
Spent a fun evening sipping herbal tea while watching an enjoyable movie (Sideways) with Mark; during a wonderful weekend getaway. Pictured, above, is our room at the inn…
and, yes, it was lusciously pink!
Different inn, but same weekend...
Adored the super moon from the private, screened-in terrace attached to our room (perfect for us introverted moon watchers!). The moon was awesome, but the three-hour serenade performed by a hoard of frogs (we enjoyed while gazing out) is what I'll always remember most fondly!
Relished an Italian martini at a fave, local restaurant while celebrating my 50th b-day.
For a few weeks, stopped daily to literally smell the roses (surprise Mother’s Day gift (from Mark)).
Treated myself to an artist’s date, where I mindfully enjoyed so many beautiful,
natural sights at a local college campus, only a couple of miles from home.
