I had to stop and pause for a few moments to take a few photos this morning to breathe in the beauty that is unfolding in some of my gardens. I haven't been able to find much time to give them my attention this year. Life is very full creating my art, teaching classes, being a mom to a 13 year old girl, keeping my relationship with Brian vibrant, staying in touch with friends and family, running endless errands, trying to keep up with the house work inside and out, and planning for the future.
Lately it has just be busy, busy, and busier. Right now I should be getting ready to go drop off my student's work to the gallery for the end of the year show, but I am taking time to remember life. Poppies are one of my favorite flowers and they remind me of my sweet Dad who always grew the most glorious flowers. He has passed on but will always stay with me in my heart. I have much gratitude for life and know that it is a gift to be cherished. So I embrace another week that is full.
Enjoy all that comes your way, Caryn
