Thankful Thursdays – Blossoms

There’s nothing to analyze today. I just wish to celebrate the pure beauty that is Spring blossoms. Yes, they are especially beautiful with the lace of the ironwork on the Eiffel Tower or a charming Parisian façade in the background, but they are also astonishing beautiful sitting gently on each branch as they do. Spring always helps me appreciate the present moment and the incredibly beauty that surrounds us at every turn. We need only pause and reflect on it.

Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.

Thankful Thursdays – Springtime ~ Paris Version

It’s probably no mystery by now that we are currently in my favorite season. I’ve well established how much I love bright colors and flowers. But there’s also the feeling of the world coming back to life that gives so much more to love about this beautiful season. Spring is a time of rebirth, a time to nurture the small seedlings of wishes and goals you planted within the last few months. Everything in nature follows a patter; it’s only right that we do the same and bring our best selves to the world at this time!

“I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”
