Saturday


As the first ray of day light slowly drifts through the living room, my  bare feet move through the shadows.  All is quiet except for the noise of this old house waking itself up slowly and the excitement of the dogs who are ready to escape through the back door and into the cold morning for a run.  



Just like yesterday and the day before that, my body moves through the motions of the day.  However if I am mindful enough, in the sameness of everyday, I find life's little pleasures.



Here is just a glimpse of small bits of my day.
 









I love sitting at Bella's desk and look through her art book.  I am constantly blown away by how amazing children's imagination can be.






I am rarely alone but when I do get a chance to be by myself, I truly cherish it.


Today is one of those days.


Love,
Victoria

  5. Dear Victoria,
    Beautiful Saturday post. I remember how peaceful as a young mother having quiet alone time was such an appreciated treat. The drawings by your daughters (pad and blackboard) are innocent beauty, oh to once again see through eyes of a child. Your beauty shines Victoria in your shares. Love how you always fill your home with fresh flowers.
    xoxo,
    Vera

    1. Thank you, Vera. I have been itching to write again. Sometimes I find it is hard to find the right pictures to accompany the words.

  7. Love your brave style, and your thoughtful Saturday. The chalk drawing says it all.
    Live your life days to its artistic fullest. Keep sharing with us what inspires your days, we are inspired right along with you.

    What next will you be working on here. I have to tell you I love the feel of the white ship lap wood walls with the dark bed and it's white and soft toned bedding.

    See you soon dear.

    1. Thank you, Jane. When I was in college, I considered myself a writer. I truly enjoy writing and sentences to me should sound like poetry. The only downside to it is that I need to be somewhat melancholy to write. It is the strangest thing. Sometimes when I am alone, I like to listen to Pride and Prejudice sound track and it always put me in this contemplative mood. Those are the best times to write. : )

  11. Victoria-Perhaps you should follow Bonjour Moon's Instagram. She writes so beautifully of love. It will taste good to you like your grandmother's cooking.
