Last weekend Bill and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary by spending a few days at the Cape – Yarmouth to be exact. We stayed at a tiny cottage…
…with huge views.
It was lovely being surrounded by so much lushness.
The birds seemed happy with the view too, since their chirping filled the air with joyful music.
That first evening on our way to dinner we stopped at nearby Gray’s beach for a little walk…and again, we were treated to a huge view.
On the walkway I happened to notice a board with a romantic thought written across it (“Our first kiss”). Seeing it made me smile.
It was so quiet that night. The waters were calm, the air was just as calm, the light was low and easy on the eyes, and the entire earth felt like a gentle whisper. I felt like I was at a point where the heavens and earth come together and meet.
And again, it was lush…a quiet kind of lush, and yet very much alive.
As Bill and I watched the light lower and fade, my heart felt full. The beauty on the outside, filled my inside, with peaceful content.
Prior to our getaway I made Bill this card…
…with these words…
…that came from my heart. Living this life together…feels like heaven on earth.
The day after our anniversary, Bill and I hiked the dunes at the Cape Cod National Seashore. While there, I came across multiple moments of inspiration…some which are art related, as well as more personal, similar to what I’ve shared above. I’ve been debating whether or not I should keep sharing these very personal parts of my life. To get right into it, I am concerned that by sharing so much, I may come across as bragging…and at a time when I know that some of you have been struggling with your personal relationships (I would never want to make anyone feel bad by bringing up my own joy). Plus, maybe you’re only interested in reading more art making related posts? At this point I’m really not sure what direction to continue. My heart says to show more, yet my heart also says to edit more. What do you think?
