Hello my lovely readers!
Hope you are all enjoying the start to your weekend wherever you are in the world! ❤
I want to start off by saying a HUGE thanks to each and every single one of you for supporting my blog. Last month I had the highest amount of traffic come through to my site and it’s been very rewarding to see all your comments and emails. I am excited for the month of August and I plan on being extra attentive to the site and to you all!
Here in Vancouver we just kicked-off the long weekend as we are celebrating B.C Day this Monday and we all get an extra day off work to enjoy the beautiful province of British Columbia. I feel very lucky to live here having the chance to constantly be surrounded with nature as I have mentioned in my previous posts 🙂
I also love fresh flowers in my living space and I try to make an effort to always have some at home. This may sound silly but I find that fresh flowers give the house positive energy. I love getting flowers and arranging them myself and I take in all the details of the flower petals and leaves. I find this practice to be very relaxing and one that brings me great joy!
I distinctly recall in my studies of the Persian Empire, reading about King Cyrus The Great (559-530 BC) and how he enjoyed gardening as well (yes! a king that would garden). He considered gardening to be a heavenly job and one that brought him great satisfaction! This is something that I remembered this morning as I glanced over at my freshly picked flowers and thought gosh such beauty and how lucky that we all get to have the privilege to pick out beautiful flowers simply from a store and bring it back home to our living spaces.
Here are a few pictures of flowers i noticed I have been Tweeting and Instagraming I hope you all enjoy your saturday!
