I’m currently listening to Seraphina singing Heart and Soul to her friend over the phone. ❤️ (I wish I could draw in these posts. I would add little decorations and things.)
Accidental video that I took this morning:
Things I want to do this year:
*Spend time by the ocean
*Read the next 4 books in the Poldark series
*Visit a castle. This one may be unrealistic, but more in reach than you might think! Did you know that there are many castles in the US? I say this as someone who has totally googled, “castles near me”.
*Paint the girls’ room
*Return to The Mount (Edith Wharton’s home) when the Italian Garden is in bloom.
*Eat out on the porch as many days a possible.
*Try a new hairstyle?
*Finally finish remodeling the downstairs bathroom
*Have at least one meal on the balcony of my favorite Italian restaurant
*Start sewing again. Sew myself a dress.
*Attend at least two concerts
*Have a visit with my sisters
*Visit the art museum
*Return to that spot we found where the autumnal views are incredible (see below)
*Dance in the rain
*Grow a small vegetable and herb garden
*Take a few walks by moonlight
*Finish at least one of the samplers that I have started.
*See Emily in the theater
*Find a way to slowly start bringing some strength and energy back to this body of mine.
*Pitch a tent in the yard and watch a meteor shower with my girls
*Laugh a lot
*Be surrounded by flowers as often as possible.
