Love is why we are here...


Happy Monday my darlings!! I do hope your weekend's were wondrous. Mine was alright, we were blessed with weather that felt like summer, the light in the sky has been amazing, like gems sparkling over sands. Sunlight so warm, you feel wrapped in a blanket that holds you tight when you feel taken over by the world. Happy moments of life that if you blink you'll miss, moments to treasure because they may not come again. The year has flown by so fast, it's nice to take moments to let it all sink in and ponder. I've collected here some favourite things that I've spotted at the moment...I hope you enjoy them & don't forget to stop & let the good moments sink in this week. Have a great one!

Loves & loves

~ List of gratefulness ~

♥ Love: given to me by family & friends, it refuels me when I feel weary. 

♥ Life: It's this amazing thing that goes so fast & can be gone in a blink of an eye. Over the weekend an old friend of mine from back in the states was in a terrible car accident, he's now fighting for his life in hospital in a coma....please keep him and his family in your hearts and prayers. He has young children who need him. Life is so precious...don't waste time not believing in yourself, loving yourself & those around you. Let others know you care. Know you are loved. Drop the silly stuff, because at the end of the day it doesn't matter. What matters is being alive & cherishing those moments & living them - truly living, no matter what it may be! So you can leave this Earth knowing you made an impact on someone's heart. And if you have no one on this earth to tell you that they love you - I love you!! 

♥ Chocolate Chip shortbread cookies....completely and utterly addictive, Achilles heel they are ;)

♥ Sunshine on days meant to rain....bliss!

♥ Art, music & books - they soothe my soul.

  1. Every single moment in life is precious and we take it for granted. It takes a cruel accident to bring us back to the reality of it all.
    My thoughts are with you, him and his family.
    Much love, dear Kizzy

  2. Lots of love to you, Daints. Channeling huge restorative and healing vibes to your friend. Xxxx I love that Romantic close-up of the masterpiece, it actually came to Brisbane years ago from the Waterhouse collection (?) I think.... And I stood in front of it for a while. It's scale was massive.

  3. Most of the time we take things for granted so we don't appreciate the real value of life and the little moments that make it worth it to live. I hope your friend would recover for his unfortunate accident. I'll keep him in my prayers.
    Wonderful post BTW. It almost make me cried!!
    Happy beginning of the week love!

  21. I was so saddened to hear about your friend. It just seems all these things happen to the best people. I don't understand why. I will continue to pray Kizzy. It's so important to spend time with friends & family and let the trivial stuff go. People harbor too much resentment.

  30. Those cookies sound incredible Doll, I love hearing about all the things that are making you happy right now. I love this post a lot, I've always thought that Cheerios are kind of boring cereal so that one in particular made me laugh, love is a very important commodity that's not to be underestimated.
