Long time, no see. I am not one to post sad or negative thoughts, but I wanted to post something to explain why I haven’t written for a while. My father who was my best friend and mentor passed away suddenly a few months ago. He was my biggest fan, so it was difficult for me to look at my website let alone post anything. Today has been the first day I have visited Breezles since everything has happened and it reminded me of how much I love creating, so I am going to slowly start posting again.
I could have posted a quote about grief today, but I saw this quote about time and related to it. Everyday we think we have more time to get things done, but truth is, time gets away from us and sometimes we don’t know where it went. I have taken time off from the website and hosting to concentrate on the responsibilities that have come up, but I need to get back into the groove because who knows how much time I have to follow my dreams.
What have you always wanted to do, but you blame not doing it on not having time?
The first day of fall is this Wendesday! I can’t believe we only have a few days left of summer and the snow will be here before we know it. I am not ready for the cold, but I am ready for a new season to begin. When a new season arrives it is the perfect time to start something new and plan for the future. I have a lot of things I want to do in the upcoming months and fall is the perfect time to get them started.
Do you feel like a change of seasons is a time to start something new?
The other day my mom told me a woman told her I was beautiful and my whenever someone tells her that she always says “she’s beautiful on the inside too”. After she said this the same woman said my mom and I were some of the nicest people she has ever met. It is nice to be told I am pretty, but the bigger compliment was being told I was nice because it means I made her feel good and to know that the simple act of being nice to someone can make their day is a great feeling. You don’t always know what people are going through and sometimes a smile or a hello can make a stranger feel better. I chose this quote to remind us all to be kind and spread it around as much as you can. I promise you will leave a good impression and people will remember you made them feel great if you are nice to everyone.
Even on your longest days to you make it a point to be kind?
Whether you like it or not football season is on its way, so today I chose a quote from one of the best football coaches in professional football history, Vince Lombardi. I like this quote becuase it can apply to so many different times in our lives. From learning to walk to not getting an A on a paper, to a bad break up or not getting our dream job, etc. it is important to get back up and try again. There are times we can stumble and their are times we can fall so hard we get the wind knocked out of us, but remember to keep getting up and things will get better as long as you work hard and have positive thoughts.
Whan was the last time you fell, but got back up again?
It is so nice to get outdoors and appreciate what nature has to offer and what better way to do that than to go camping? I love to get away from the stresses of the city and relax in the woods with friends and family. It is a time when technology can’t be used and you can spend time with the people you love the most. S’mores are just an added bonus.
My husband and I love to host. In fact, one of the many things we thought about when we purchased our home is that it had to be party friendly. I had a fabulous time finding a quote about parties and there are so many fun quotes I had a hard time choosing just one, but when I came across the 10 rules of party crashing on Lilly Pulitzer’s website I couldn’t resist sharing. I hope this make you smile and gets you in the mood to host your own gathering this summer.
Do you like to host big parties or small get togethers?
I enjoy it when the days are longer and the nights are shorter, but there is something special about summer nights. Whether it’s staying inside and feeling the breeze through the open windows, dining al fresco, watching outdoor movies, going to a concert or sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air summer nights are something to be treasured.
What is your favorite thing to do on summer nights?
