This morning I had to run an errand after my carpool run which meant Millie didn't get to go for her morning car ride. I couldn't forget her sad face so when I got home I decided to take her with me and do my morning walk in the Village instead of in the green space where I often walk.
Walking through the Village is one of my absolute favorite things. I thought you might like to come along. I love to look at the beautiful gardens and get inspired with ideas for my own.
There is beauty to be seen everywhere. Even in a decaying fence. I have one of those myself!
This weekend I told my Sweet Man that there is nobody else I would rather be and no other life I would rather have. He told me I must be doing something right then. Indeed. I think I must.
It wasn't really a new feeling for me, just the first time it had formed itself into words. I'm embracing life these days. Loving the good, appreciating the every day, striving to keep a positive outlook.
We have a little produce stand on Main St. now. I can hardly stand how much I love it. I can hardly stand how much I love this town.
Life is not perfect but the imperfections make us appreciate the rest of life that much more.
And then we are home. There really is no place like it. My favorite place. The place where my heart is even when I'm not. The place where I love on my family, bake, make, tend, snuggle, garden, dream, do and create. The place where contentment lives.
