Walking around town and seeing all the festive decorations is helping to allow my heart to feel calm and happy.
I don’t think any other flower dries as nicely as roses do.
When roses begin to die they dry so wonderfully and often I choose to let them be and refuse to switch them out for newer roses.
My girlfriend gave me this awesome coffee mug (along with all the goodies in the picture) for Christmas and I’m pretty obsessed. It also came with chalk but who knows if I'll ever feel the need to write on it but of course keeping the chalk just in case ...
I have yet to share our Christmas décor on the blog but this ornament makes me smile every time I see it.
Colleen just knows me so well because she picked up this camera ornament. Photography has become such a big part of my life and seeing this ornament reminds me that I found something in this life that I absolutely love doing. I know that I don’t do it professionally but it is my most favorite hobby and I hope that I continue to love it as much as I do.
Usually, I don't like taking pictures except if it's for family (very close friends) or at an event because I always take pictures. Being asked to take pictures and knowing that others will see it and ask who took it feels strange. I know, I know. You would think I would be OK since I blog my pictures all the time. It's just this weird thing but I must admit that I felt so much more at ease than I thought I would. But then again, these smiles. It probably wouldn't have taken much but the smiles.
As this year comes to an end, I’ve been thinking a lot and unfortunately it has me feeling a little anxious. 2015 has been the hardest year of my life so lately I’ve been thinking about 2016 and almost nervous about what it will bring. I’ve been trying to only put positive thoughts out there but I’m not doing too well controlling my thoughts. I guess the unexpected is always to be expected and the only control I have is not having any control. As 2015 ends, I hope that 2016 brings unexpected peace. I need that most of all.
