I look at the calender above my desk this morning and I realize we are fast approaching the close of July. It seems that every month I have the same reaction, where did it go? How did it slip by so fast? What was I doing while it raced on by? In comparison to many people I live a small life. My husband and I walked away from crowded, suburban Florida living. We traded it for a tiny rural community in the mountains. Nothing here moves fast. Except the pages on my calender.
Today in the mountains it is overcast after a night of one glorious rainstorm. As I type this post the breeze coming through my window is chilly enough that I wish I had on long sleeves. It feels more like fall than the heat of summer. For me it's one of the perks of mountain living. So as I cast about for my image for you today I decided this little beauty was like a bright spot of sunshine on a cool and cloudy day. I hope you enjoy her my friends and create some beautiful art.
