I woke up Wednesday morning thinking about sunflowers. I quickly gathered the sunflowers I painted last year (on the gray papers) and the one with lilacs I painted this Spring from a bouquet my children had given me for Easter. I started writing my thoughts and how much I would like to paint sunflowers and listen to a playlist. I went to you tube and listened to Paul McCartney "I'll follow the sun" and Mumford and Sons "Roll Away the Stone" and felt so much better. After writing where I would like to travel to, I realized I would just be as content to search these places on the web.
I then went to meditate and the quote for the day was: " Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine" Ralph Waldo Emerson. Then later in the day on Facebook, the graphics fairy shared a post of a sunflower with a quote. I shared it and this morning wanted to write in the comments, what I am writing today. So, it made me think I should do it as a blog post! I haven't posted in seven months! I have had a great seven months and have been very busy, but so glad this inspired me to write, journal and keep in mind how much music can lift my spirits and stir my soul. Hope you are following the sun today! If not listen to these songs and maybe they will help you too!

Happy 2019! Going into the New Year hopeful, but as always a little challenged. The last week I have enjoyed Facebook and all the positive posts. I am going to challenge myself this year and try to post one picture, with how there is much more positivity to life to bring to light. It has been ten years since I started blogging. I was so proud of myself and it really has gotten away from my daily routine. But, this year I will try to realistically try to post each day. (Uh-oh.....I wrote it.... I better make it happen!) I chose one of my favorite subjects to start with: MACARONS! In my first blog I wrote about them here
on our trip to Paris ten years ago. What a difference ten years make: This is a picture I took in London in 2017! So happy to have made it to Europe two more times during the last decade!
When I came home from Paris ten years ago, I couldn't even taste a Macaron from Laduree in the United States.....NOW look at all the locations: Laduree in the United States

Meeralee in the store. She is working on a new journal and I still have to go back to Sea and Green in Asbury Park to get a copy of her book "My Friend Fear".
