These tiny beauties are blooming in our grass this week! Spring arrived at last in Wisconsin.

“The happiness of life is made up of little things – a smile, a helping hand, a caring heart, a word of praise, a moment of shared laughter.

We are most alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

– Thornton Wilder




Everything is alright with me.

Maybe I’ve got everything I need.

I don’t have a lot

But I love what I’ve got and that’s the key.

I stumbled upon a brilliant little song last week (Everything by Abby Payne.) The heartfelt lyrics are sung like a poem.


I am wondering if you see what I see via the steam above my coffee cup?  Can you believe it?  Lots of hearts have been showing up lately… In case you don’t exactly see what I see, re-vist the coffee’s steam on the upper left corner.  And, look what I found in a bag of granola.  No kidding… Obviously I found something else for breakfast.  I am saving this bag of granola and labeling it “divine.”

Marveling at the light… when it actually shows up this rainy spring.

So love the one you hold And I will be your goal To have and to hold A lover of the light Mumford & Sons

“So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal,
To have and to hold
A lover of the light
-Mumford & Sons

After a lot of overwhelm today, the day finally eased into night with a quiet dark drive home with one of my daughters sitting on my right.  In one tiny moment we both observed the magic of a shooting star.  For real… Which prompted me to share this recent mirror project.

Here is a peak at another lyric mirror I made and gifted to a dear friend.  There is a tender story behind these lyrics and this particular gift made with a lot of love.  It is a story I will save for another day.

Love this message I discovered while running. You can’t actually see my smile in the reflection, but I assure you, it is there…. Please pass it on.
