Seasons in life ebb & flow with the seasons of the year. Every month the Earth shares with us gifts that are unique to it’s location as it makes it’s way around our sun. In the past, I lived my life in a way that allowed me to notice , treasure, and share these gifts with others. However, in more recent years, I’ve been busier, and often distracted with worry. I have longed to experience again the joy that is found in the everyday gifts of the seasons.
In 2014, I am determined to live slower, to celebrate the beauty that surrounds me, and to to experience the wonders of each month.
To honor this choice, and to make my goal more tangible, I want to begin each month with a round up of my favorite things for the month. I hope that these posts will also inspire you to live each day to the fullest, and to taking advantage of all the gifts our seasons have to offer.
