Back to reality. I feel like I'm blooming right here in the desert of Phoenix. Last week was very hot but today it was in the low 80's and windy. Figures that I wore a skirt of all days. Between the wind blowing and the kids lifting it up, I'm glad I wore shorts underneath. I didn't want a Michelle Obama moment!
The children loved using their creativity to make necklaces using the outer border of paper plates.
And speaking of blooming ...my very own little garden is blooming. My roses are looking pretty good. I love tinkering in the mornings as I trim and fertilize. I'm putting together an herb garden too with fresh basil, rosemary and parsley. I can't wait to go on this year's Arcadia Edible Garden Tour Tour to get more ideas and tips. I already purchased my ticket.
So yes I will bloom where I'm planted; even in the desert of Phoenix. And when you start to look around there are always many blessings to be seen.

May I encourage you to look around at your life and begin to notice those every day blessings. I can guarantee it will change your perspective.
Blessings and love,
