“For every minute you are angry you lose 60 seconds of happiness.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hi!, how are you?
Somewhere in-between now and our last chat…
we have traveled into the halfway mark of 2018.
Another celebration of July 4th has come and gone.
A wonderful evening celebrating with neighbors and friends.
I’m so lucky!
Being aware of how quickly the year is passing…
I’ve been taking everything in…
precious moments of the months that have past…
Somehow I decided it was time for editing my closets.
(organize, clean things out)…like an inner time clock
a desire to change things around a bit.
Change helps me refocus…live more intentionally.
Maybe halfway through the year is the right time for a change. Maybe it isn’t. I’ll just keep checking in…editing closets…staying in tune with how I want to live and making adjustments along the way. It’s an exciting journey.
Although this will be our third summer living on the Oregon coast…I’ve actually celebrated four July 4th’s here!
This year Joe and I barbecued and prepared baked beans, corn, and potato salad for side dishes.
Our friends brought the salad, watermelon and dessert.
After dinner we house hopped over to another friend’s home to watch the fireworks. (and dessert)
