Today is one of those days where this is really hard for me. But no matter what, I still have to get up and show up! Placing an order tonight so if you need some new foundation or skincare or eyeshadow, message me! 💋
I’ve always loved orchids. They’re temperamental as hell, and I’ve failed many times at keeping them happy over the years, but they are so beautiful and special that they are worth the time, effort, care and focus. It takes patience, discipline and thoughtfulness to make sure they have exactly what they need, and as life gets in the way, at times that can be a lofty goal. .
After an extended period of dormancy where no blooms were present, this beautiful little bloom burst out rather suddenly! Such a great reminder that sometimes periods of dormancy and restfulness come right before incredible new growth. And for me personally, it’s a reminder to stay laser focused and believe even when I cannot see the “bloom” quite yet. Super happy to take in this little beauty on a rainy Presidents Day. And special thanks to @simone718s for being the best surrogate Orchid mom when needed.
Our neighbor’s house caught fire. It kinda has me shaken up. It’s truly amazing how fleeting life is. As a culture, we pretend like we will live forever and take for granted how quickly it can all go away in a blink of an eye. *
“Do not store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them, rust destroys them and where thieves break in and steal, rather store your treasures in heaven. For wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also.” -Matt 6:19-21
Everybody GROWS at different rates. Today’s growth comes in the form of learning how to slow down and rest. If you’re like me and love adventure, but have a hard time applying the brakes, then growth looks like proactively scheduling a day where you DO NOTHING; all while being comfortable with your second family. ALL DAY. So growth is jammies, movie binge-watching and snacking. I can get used to this. 📷: @cntraveler#flowermartgoodness#peoniesfordays#findbeauty
