Some things are always good



Some things are always good.

Buying yourself flowers to brighten up a cold, wet and windy day.

Aroma therapy, especially my favorite mix of lavender, orange, and geranium.

Lighting candles all over the house just because they're beautiful.

English breakfast tea with soy milk. (because you can't find pg tips here unless your willing to pay $9 at an import shop!)

A visit from a old friend.

A long indulgent milk bath with candles and your favorite music.

A great book.

Feeling understood, supported and loved.

Hugs.

Helping out a friend.

Knowing you are blessed to do what you love for a living.

Having a tribe you love and are constantly amazed by. The bond between women is really extraordinary!

Knowing you are happy and lucky.


Pale pink tulips in a vintage vase (from my mom who also knows what is always good)

Fabulous website - just beautiful! Testimony to your talent. I agree - the tulips are lovely, as is the vase. I will return later to read some archives.

Another good thing... following your nose from another blog, and finding something and someone new. This is wonderful, and I've been looking at your first post, and could so relate to the fears and doubts you express. I deleted twice before I actually allowed myself to post my first blog entry. But you have already identified the community (I love your word "tribe") that supports and welcomes us all.

I LOVE tulips. I almost bought some at the grocery store last week but they didn't seem like they had a lot of life in them at the store I was at.

Both of those bouquets are gorgeous. I think I will buy myslef some this weekend.
