Lovely Nature

16 10 2012

I have been struggling with depression since we closed our shop last January. It is something that I never experienced before. Yes I feel blue here and there. But it was never like this. The sadness brought me to my knees. I couldn’t get out of bed in days and would cried all the time. It felt so foreign to be in a constant state of hopelessness. I knew I needed help. Ever since then I have been in talk therapy every week. The act of sharing really helps. Also knowing that I am not alone is such a gift. I’m learning to enjoy the simple things in life again. Taking photos of my surrounding has been therapeutic. It gives me a creative outlet since I am not ready to jump back into design. There are days when I’m back in that rabbit hole. Although this time around I am more conscious of the warning signs. I am slowly crawling back out into the light.

Sweet Friend

Such a wonderful surprise to received this exquisite work from the very talented florist designer Beka via Origin Flowers. Her autumn arrangement is heavenly. Thank you Beka for cheering me up. Life has been a bit harsh on both of us lately. Nothing like a great friendship and flowers to lift up my spirit. Thank you again sweet friend!

Autumn is here

25 09 2012

The air is getting much cooler here in Portland. Although we are pretty lucky with some blue sky. Getting ready for autumn season. Pulling out my sweaters and tights. I’m also enjoying watching the leaves turning into vibrant colours.

We decided to take a mini holiday for the last camping trip of the summer. We adore Smith Rock. Always look forward to our yearly camping trip at the magnificent spot. It was perfect weather and truly magical.

Another beach adventure

13 09 2012

Okay so I went to the beach again. I am a complete addict! I can get use to this whole retirement thing. This time the coast was so moody. I barely could see anything with the heavy fog. It was really magical in a way. Beautiful and mysterious. Perfect mood for some serious soul searching. Wishing you a lovely Thursday.

We cherish our summers here in the pacific northwest. Warm weather and blue sky are rare here for most of the year. B and I usually try to have our mini holidays through out the summer. We always look forward to our yearly back packing and camping adventure. This year we returned to Cooper Spur trail on Mt. Hood. We had warm sunny weather and lots of blue sky. Plus the wild flowers were in bloom. Truly heaven on earth.
