Change is in the Air


Change is in the air

new adventures around the bend

Beauty awaits

Beauty was definitely awaiting around this bend in the form of the lovely falls in my last post.  But aside from all of the beautiful colors of autumn and the changing of the seasons, change is also in the air for me as I start a new job tomorrow.  Hopefully a bit of beauty awaits me there too.  It will certainly be a new adventure, as I haven’t worked since 2010.  I’m nervous and excited as I look forward to learning some new skills, meeting new people, and making a bit of extra money in the process.  There’s beauty to be found in all those things – although they’re not necessarily things we usually associate beauty with, they can be.  It’s all about our perspective, right?

May all life’s changes be filled with a bit of beauty and adventure!

Many blessings to all of you in the coming week…

Delicious Autumn


Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

~ George Eliot


I LOVE this quote by George Eliot and resonate with it soooo much!  😍  I snapped this photo while on a day trip with a friend to find some autumn color.  We ending up finding a bit here at Hidden Falls, located within Nerstrand Big Woods State Park.

I’m still waiting for the fall colors to fully show up here in the city.  Not that I’m complaining – I enjoy getting away from the city and taking day drives to beautiful destinations in the surrounding areas.

May you find beauty wherever you are today…

Autumn Streams

trickle slowly

in no hurry for winter

And this year autumn is really taking its own sweet time getting here.  We’re still only at about 25% here in the city, and I’m feeling the north calling to me.  I might need to take a little road trip this weekend…


Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and may all your roads lead to beautiful places…

Autumn Equinox


First day

first taste

of fall

We’re just getting our first taste of autumn color here in Minnesota on this first day of fall.  It’s typically well under way by this date on the calendar, but it’s late this year, probably due to the unusually warm temperatures we’re having.  Hopefully that means fall will last longer than usual too.  I love all things autumn!  😍


May your day be filled with all that you love.  Happy 1st day of fall!  🍁

Morning Dreams

I awake

dreams of you still lingering in my mind

After pouring a warm cuppa, I go out to greet the morning

Inhaling deeply, I gaze up

a lovely crescent moon glows brightly against a soft blue morning sky

wispy clouds drift by and I feel my heart lift

Exhaling slowly, I smile

as my love and prayers are caught up and carried away on those clouds

to sail across that vast expanse of blue

over there to you


in my morning dreams
