Sweet Summer

Roses and Liliacs
from my garden

Seems impossible that August is just a day away!!! where does the time go???
I am just about settled into my new spot in American Home and Garden, my space is slowly getting to where I want it... Good news is as soon as I bring a piece of furniture in it sells:) Two times I do not even have the item off the dolly and it has been bought!! The other part to this "good news" is that I get go hunt for more wonderful treasures for my sweet clients! A win win for me:)
I am going to go to New Hampshire to see my little sissy and to treasure hunt..

My soap making is coming along, I wish I could share the smell of the lavender.. Sooo amazing... Very yummy. I am working on the packaging now I promise to share photos soon...

My dear sweet friend Rose recommended a book for me to read, "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp on the cover it says
"A dare to LIVE FULLY right where you are" As you know I am on my Vision Quest and a big part of that has been learning to enjoy my life to live more fully to be more in the moment... to just be.. THIS is what this book is about!!! I am about half way through funny how things just turn up... It is also about grace how does one have grace when so many terrible things happen in the world, in ones own life?? She talks about by hurrying up and getting more things done that you are saving time but really you are losing time because you are not in the moment.. you are losing precious minutes.. Makes you think...

Have a wonderful Sunday

Lucky us....

Lucky me....
I have to say that I truly live in a very beautiful town!!! Our sunset was beyond
words tonight!!! Maxie and I took a sunset trip to the beach and this is what we got!!! Max said "boy Gigi God can sure paint good" That doodleboy:) This is part of my "Vision Quest" spending more time looking for sandcrabs, exploring the jetties looking for starfish with Max...

In April I said I am on my "Vision Quest" for what does being 50 really mean.. Where do I go from here... I have gotten many emails from old friends and  new blogger friends expressing what 50 meant to them.. I would say 100% said that is when they started living their lives for themselves!!! Taking the time to enjoy things that make them happy... I really thought about what makes me happy and I mean really really happy... you know that feeling in your tummy happiness??? Well of coarse my Maxie is right up on that list... But that is such a no brainer... I am a little bias:) I started to write down what makes me happy and the list was over 100 things!!!!

Part of the my quest is knowing when something doesn't make me  happy and I have learned in the last month that it's ok to change it and that made me really happy:) Life has a funny way of just going on... either you are aware or you are just bumping along... and I realized at times I have been just bumping along... So this whole turning 50 thing is actually helping me figure some things out making some changes and seriously loving my life!!!!

Cheers for now...
