Beautiful (Weekend) Things

September 24, 2012

I have a board on Pinterest called “Just Beautiful” where I pull all the things I find that I love simply because they are, well, beautiful. There really is no reason in particular that I have this board, other than the fact that beauty in all shapes and forms is inspiring, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, sometimes I forget to see the beauty that I’m surrounded by every single day. Of course, that’s not to say my life is one big walk in the park. But when I take the time to stop and soak up the pretty things right in front of my nose, I find I’m more grateful for my current circumstance and place in life.

This weekend was full of pretty little moments. My two loves, Joe and Nut, curled up under a blanket on Saturday morning. Magazine reading. Taking time to give myself a dark manicure, perfect for fall. And a handful of fresh mini gourds Joe got from one of his customers last week that are now making our place feel a little more like fall.

    I’m trying to intentionally absorb more beauty, and recognize that it’s all around me all the time. I love that you took a couple moments to soak it in this weekend. I think long hours at the office have a way of sucking beauty out of our lives, but I’m trying to fight that. Thanks for the reminder!

    I love taking time to intentionally seek out the beauty in the simple things. And I love that polish color. Lovely!

      It’s so hard to do sometimes when the everyday tasks mount up. And thanks on the polish! I picked it up at Walmart. I’m ashamed to say it’s from the Kardashian line of Nicole by OPI (Hard-Kourt Fashionista…ugh).

    I really enjoyed this simplistic post. It reminded me that life is beautiful no matter how much wrong can happen. šŸ™‚
