I hope you’ll forgive my absence. It’s been a good round of push and pull figuring out all the shiny new bells and whistles here on my new WordPress blog. Turns out the two blog posts I recently posted: a) failed to launch and b) when they did launch, to the best of my knowledge nobody saw them. Except for me of course. Sigh. With the help of my amazing web designer, I think we’ve finally got this thing down, fingers crossed. Maybe you can let me know in the comments section if you came here today from a notification in your inbox, notifying you that I had a new post on my blog (insert huge hug of gratitude from me here).
Did I ever tell you we planted two lemon trees and a single lime tree in our garden last year? Who ever knew a couple fruit trees could bring such joy into our lives. Every morning Adam and I take turns going out into the garden to pick fresh lemons for our daily green smoothies and limes for our salads. I love how when you pluck them off the branch, they release a strong citrus scent that makes it feel like you’re holding summertime in your hands. I tell myself each morning, this must be what heaven smells like.
One morning, I decided to bring my camera to capture some beautiful citrus floral blooms, and to my surprise, a little honey bee decided to pay one of our citrus trees a visit. I snapped the button at precisely the right moment and captured this little guy, swooping in for a friendly visit. I promise this image is NOT photo-shopped.
Can you spot the bee?
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d get photo-bombed by a honey bee!
So there’s this little Vietnamese soup place we like to frequent in Camarillo, called Love Pho n More. For those that don’t know, Pho is a Vietnamese soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles, tofu, fresh veggies, bean sprouts and similar ingredients depending where you are. It is a hearty meal, yet leaves you feeling incredibly light and nourished.
Anyways, after our meal we broke open our fortune cookies. Here’s what mine said…
It speaks directly to the antique dealer/treasure finder in me. It’s fun to think how it also applies to my interior design work. Folks hire me to help them discover the treasures in their homes they cannot see. I love looking for the beauty in the every day.
Next, Adam cracked open his fortune cookie and here’s what his said…
We found this fun and ironic, as he just started up his own business at the beginning of this year, and it’s been a gradual pull forward towards finding his own pace of meaningful success.
Here’s to never giving up, handfuls of summer, and insightful desserts ; ) Have a great week my friend!
