We started out in a field with tons and tons of cool, modern furniture and I began to think doilies was going to be like finding a needle in a hay stack.
Most of the morning was spent just browsing and having fun taking pictures of this and that….
After lunch I was refueled and ready to begin looking again and quickly started seeing things of a bit more interest.
In the end, I found a fabric vendors with tables of doilies. I was so overwhelmed there are no pictures. I almost walked away because I couldn’t process it all, but my sweet guy insisted we stay and take our time going through things. And wouldn’t you know, there were a few that were exactly what I was looking for!
As the journey continues, I am more quickly able to identify what depletes my energy, fills me up and what I need on a daily basis to not just survive the day, but thrive. For so long, I was in survival mode, trying to make it from one day to the next, not able to consistently be energized and truly happy.
It’s a good thing we walked, and walked and walked some more because oh how good the bread.
The bounty of the city was plentiful, just like all the wonderful wishes from family and friends that left me feeling full and deeply loved. How grateful I am.
During a beautiful mid-day walk at work this week, I literally stopped to smell the flowers. There’s nothing like fresh new blooms to keep me mindful and in the moment.
