Lovely daughter in law, mother of the adorable Miss Isla is the new owner of the Hermes scarf !
I have given my daughter one
so it seemed natural to ask Natalie and she said she would not like it,
she would LOVE it!
All wrapped up and ready for delivery.
Joy is utter bliss and can be found in the wee things
all you have to do is look for them
they are the simplest of pleasures that make our days rich and full.
a smile from a stranger passing you on the street
a hug from a loved one
a cheeky wink from your husband when you least expect it
a found penny
the sun as it shines in through your window
a phone call from a friend that you haven't heard from in a long time
hot water and scented soap
a freshly brewed pot of coffee
your cozy robe and warm slippers on a cold morning
purring and content, a pussycat snuggling and curled up beside you
perhaps it's a great book.
Whatever it is that brings you JOY
embrace it in all it's forms
savour and bask in those moments.
Life is a series of events that form and shape you into who you are...
and you can always find ways of making the everyday more special.
"attitude of gratitude" is my mantra...
Pepper turning her back on the camera
beside our kitchen tree...
the kitchen tree
at the home of our son and daughter in law
one of my favourite serving pieces...
and all dressed up and ready for a party...
I gave myself a quick manicure
and tried to do something festive with my hair
my face is looking rather tired after a busy week so I will be used a light hand with my makeup
I wore some brighter lip gloss
the Christmas limited edition shade from Chanel.
I look a bit flushed
my glasses are pinching my nose
you can see the marks
you get the idea
a natural face with the brighter lip shade...
Wishing all you fabulous readers a wonderful JOY infused weekend.
