Today, I had one of the most heart warming experiences. A returned phone call to my cousin and I'm greeted with;

"Tell me five words to describe what makes you amazing. Come on." 

A little startled, I proceed with the standard self-conscious; 

"Uh, I don't know... um..."

"Five words, come on!"

So, I began to think what makes me amazing... a little embarassing, self-praising but here's what I went with:

1. Red hair (standard, really)
2. Compassion
3. Love (naff perhaps, but true)
4. Hard working
and Casey prompted me with number 5. Creative, followed by a 

"Don't you feel amazing? You are amazing".

This was honestly one of the most unexpected phone calls, but truly made my day. And so after telling her just that and that she is amazing, I had to go and share the good vibes via sticky note to one of my work mates.

Warmth: Phone calls from my cousin #iamgrateful

I recommend be startled with such questions in the future.

Happy Thursday.

... with the owl at night, shall not soar with the eagle by day.
Au contraire!

The aim is to do both, for a while.
Two days til Summertime.

the right time

Good morning.

It has been a while between lengthy posts, but I am up bright-eyed & bushy tailed on this gorgeous Spring morning, sipping on peppermint tea and eating a delicious breakfast - all pre-work. And so while I've got this sweet little space in time, I thought I'd share my latest project with you. Small, but so sweet and significant - and what I think is a lovely project to embark on at this time in my life.

A couple of months ago, my lovely blogger friend Jazzie Fizzle, created an Instagram Photo-A-Day project called "I am grateful". We live in a day and age, all hustle-bustle with less time to sit back and appreciate the little (and big) things in life.So, I thought this would be a lovely way to acknowledge some of things I am truly grateful for and enjoy the creative process all at once.

Have you partaken in the "I am grateful" Photo-A-Day project? If so, I'd love to see what you came up with, creatively and those things that make you smile, breathe easier and just want to be a better person.

Here are my first couple, Happy Thursday!

Person : This big sleepy cat. #iamgrateful
Comfort : A cup of Twinings peppermint tea. #iamgrateful
