finding gratitude ...


 It's been  shall I say a 'complicated' week here 
so much so I didn't expect to post...



 but I woke up this morning
with a fresher perspective
realizing there were some very good parts to the week as well...

like fresh peonies in the living room...


a center piece of
new pears arranged in a painterly fashion 


 my beautiful daughter's return from college....


 finding a new favorite restaurant.....


 with a fresh loft like appeal...


 and food that can keep up with the entrancing interior.




an afternoon trip to Trader Joes for supplies
for a night alone
for some much needed recharging
made for such a better morning perspective!



Today I am lucky enough to spend it with Ellis
as we work on tomorrow's 
Father's Day celebration!



wishing you love and joy
as you style your life




thanks so for stopping by
