random musings on everyday beauty


Sunrise Town Neck Lillibridge

1. At 5:20 this morning my bedroom was lit up with bright red and orange light. I felt the sunrise was beckoning me outside. I actually felt a little “witchy” like I was being mysteriously seduced to head to the light. NOTE: I was born with an extra finger on my left hand, as was my daughter, Lucy—anyway…I ran outside in my pajamas and watched the sunrise over Cape Cod Bay in our neighborhood of TOWN NECK. I quickly drove down to the beach to take some pictures before I missed it.

2. I have guests coming tonight and I am doing a 20 minute tidy this morning. I walked out into my yard to find some flowers for this Scargo Pottery vase that I love. These flowers looked so independent of each other. I liked the way they seemed to have such personalities. Independent and Unified. This is what I’m striving for today with my family life. We’ll see…

3. This morning I opened a book and this pressed leaf fell out. I found the color to be so stunning. I don’t remember when I pressed it, but I am so grateful that somewhere along the line I learned that life is these little moments and not necessarily grand experiences or discoveries.
