Being on quarantine for the second time in two months has been a little rough on my mood and mental state. However, I have been able to find joy in having more time to read and write and cook! I also made time to go ahead and decorate the house for Spring and Easter. I am not a professional by any means, but I love sprucing up the house for various holidays and seasons. Fresh decorations along with today’s abundant sunshine has been good for my soul.
“I haven’t seen the sun in…” (Typed in my best Kid Rock voice.) I live in Ohio. In winter in Ohio, the skies are nothing but gray. Gloomy gray. Drab, hopeless, discouraging, gloomy gray. I’m completely convinced that the ever-present gray hanging over my head has an impact on my mood and my outlook. So…since I can’t jump on a plane and head somewhere sunny, I thought I would just post one of my favorite pictures from my 50th birthday trip to Napa Valley. It makes me smile. I can feel the sun on my skin and taste the full red wine when I look at this memory.
If you are somewhere sunny right now, do not take that for granted. If you are stuck under skies of gray and gloom, enjoy a piece of my sunshine. Much love!
