stepping into the light
hi guys! it’s been way too long, i missed you! but i had to disconnect from the hyper-overdrive my bod and psyche were on. it’s been a crazy busy couple months. once again BiG things are in the works (more about that soon), but for the first time in a long while i feel at ease today. so what did i do? headed straight to pinterest of course!
it’s funny the path you end up following when you go there. at first i was looking for holiday pics, pretty and inspirational. mom and dad are back home making strudel and decorating so i know there will be plenty of holiday cheer when i head back up north. still i’d like to do a little something in my place. i’ve become way too lazy to do much so when i started coming across string lights, got to thinking about what a big statement just a little sparkle can deliver.
when i was younger i had them up year round. there was nothing like coming home and seeing them shine. it was sort of comforting.
and you have to love that the messier they are the better they look
and you look great posing with them in a twinkling mirror!
there’s an instant transformation that happens to a room when that little plug goes in the socket
it seems around this time every year lately there’s always talk about the war on the holidays. this one doesn’t want a tree in the town square, that one doesn’t want to know from kwanzaa or chanukah in public spaces…
string lights just remind us that there is a holiday season however we want to celebrate
that there’s magic in the air
and chances for a new beginning
best of all it doesn’t take much
even nature creates her own version!
so i think i’ll invest in a set or two today. will let you know where they end up!
oh, ps: we have another giveaway, and to those who won a couple weeks ago, i’ll be sending out your books and portraits this week, thank you for your patience!
