Orange Gerbera Daisies

Orange Gerbera Dasies
Albany, California
June 25th 2014

"If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies."

~Nadine Stair

I know, I know... summer has just started, there is beauty of all kinds everywhere, and what am I seeing? Oranges, browns, deep greens... you know... autumn colors! LOL. I have a one track mind it seems. I guess for me, all roads lead to autumn. Oh my, how I wish it would hurry up and get here! But on a more summery note, don't these daisies kinda look like a bunch of beautiful, bright orange 4th of July fireworks? :)

A Look Back At June 2014

A June Twilight

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance."

~Bern Williams

Another month come and gone. And yes, I slacked off a bit this month also. July promises to be super busy with photography with the holiday, and some play time in Santa Cruz, and outings to do some Geocaching with Alan. I would tell you all about it now, but that's not what this post is about! This post is about saying goodbye to June. So, you will just have to wait until next week, when I will fill you in on what I have been up to!

52 Already?

Happy Owls

~William Shakespeare

Me at 50.

It's that time again... June 29th... my birthday! Personally, I like birthdays, a lot, but it sure is strange how fast my life seems to have gone since turning 21! It is really just a blink, but when I look back over the years, I was a pretty lucky person in that blink, because I know I was loved! Alan, I love you back! And my online friends, and IN REAL LIFE friends, I love all of you as well! So it's all good! And one really great thing about being this age, I finally feel smart, and perhaps even a little wise about a few things! I wouldn't change my age for anything!

So, what does someone who is happy, and content with her life want for her birthday? Well, see, it's the little things that can make me the happiest! About a week ago, or so, one of my favorite Twitter peeps, Paul Myers (@pulmyears) posted a great photo (pretty much exactly like the one above) to his Instagram account of a set of colorful owl candles he spotted at a nursery called Flowerland. 

He filled me in on the location of the nursery, and last week I decided to pay it a little visit. Low and behold, there were the adorable candles! I decided to purchase the green one. It's got a nice autumn vibe to it, and I thought it would look really nice with my other candles on my desk. And it does. And it makes me smile. It reminds me that I am a bit older, but a bit wiser too. I am so glad he posted that photo, because if he hadn't, I would have missed out on the little green owl, and that wouldn't have been good because it was the perfect something to give myself for making it to 52!


I just hope I didn't throw off the owl's Feng shui too much!

Hello *52*... good to meet ya! :)
