{simple pleasures} espoirs et invitations: a fresh, new day

Write it on your heart

that every day is the best day in the year,

He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day

who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

espoirs et invitations: each new day is dear with its hopes + invitations according to sir emerson. and i quite agree. with every morn + every new season, a fresh start.

{simple pleasures} jouer et prier: places to play + pray

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
— John Muir

places to play + pray: far and wide, beauty pours forth from nature. one of my favorite scents is the smell of the great outdoors; that magical combination of grass + dirt, trees + leaves, wind + sun. i so love the summer months.
