Wednesday Words: Celebrate

sparkler copy

Today is the 2 year anniversary of OnAngles!  I cannot believe it has been this long already. The time has flown.  Huge thanks to you for visiting and continuing to visit.  The past year, I took a bit of a break while I educated myself.  Thank you for your patience as I have begun to get back into the routine of sharing with you each day.  I still remember my giddiness when I was working on my first post which seemed very apropos and relevant to my beginning the new blogging journey. The feeling still persists as I continue to share with you. I am so honored you would take your time to visit and share.

I really love the idea of celebrating everyday.  We often save our special items for special occasions which really does not allow us to get the most use out of them  or appreciate them.  So, we will adopt the mantra, ” Celebrate Everyday!” and treasure each day as they are a gift.  Cheers!

Rain Dance

This hummingbird dancing in the rain is exactly how I have felt this last week.  Much is going down around you and try as you might you feel like the hummer flapping your wings as fast as you can to stay afloat. Anyhoo…letting life not get to you is very important but often difficult to do.  All we can do is continue to flap our wings and do our best along with being thankful for our tribe around us.  I for one am glad it is the weekend is here and some dryer weather along with it.  Have  a lovely weekend!

Kindness

It is always good to have some kindness in our lives.  Whether it may be a friend who listens when you need or a simple touch when you need support.  We walk each day as a form of exercise and clearing our heads.  I  always look forward to our walks as they are our time which is not shared with anyone else except the others who are enjoying their walks as well.  This particular morning,  a lovely couple in the middle of the meadow and another father and son enjoying their am jaunt.  The lone jogger making the loops and us being greeted with the kindness of, “Good Morning” from a fellow walker.  It is these special acts of pleasantry which are often taken for granted or forgotten as we run through our day.  Thank you for all those random acts of kindness which really make such an impact.

On the Path Together

We Made It! Yes, it is Friday and we can rejoice as this weekend is an extended one.  I still have many a project to complete but relish the extra day and look forward to enjoying some quality time with my loved one.  Wherever your weekend takes you, stop, and take a moment to let your loved ones know how much they mean to you as you are together on the path.  Happy Weekend!

This OR That: Mustard 2 Ways

Mustard 2 Ways

While organizing, I came across quite a bit of the color mustard.  Yes, I seem to really like this color which is hard to wear for most people as it is not a color most gravitate toward.  Whether it is the main focus or an accent this color really is quite unique.  It ranges from more green to orange to brown.  It would pair well with all neutrals: navy, black, brown, cream and grey.  The challenge is finding the right shade for you along with what neutral suits you best.  I think I might try to pair it with grey as with winter the skies are quite a chilled grey with a bit of mustard to warm it up.  This hand knitted scarf is gorgeous!  I would love to learn to knit so I could make one for myself.  The earrings are faceted loveliness.  How would you wear it?

This OR That

A Bit of Snap and Pop

Happy Monday!

Last week was Elvis’ 80th birthday and the occsassion motivated me to see some of his early movies.  So, this weekend was quite the marathon of Elvis movies.  While the later ones are formulaic; they are fun and you get to hear “The King” sing!  I thoroughly enjoyed my Elvis movie binge and encourage you to rock and roll with whatever brings you happiness.  Here’s to a great week!
