Quicken

Quicken

Loneliness clarifies. Here silence stands
Like heat. Here leaves unnoticed thicken,
Hidden weeds flower, neglected waters quicken,
Luminously-peopled air ascends;
And past the poppies bluish neutral distance
Ends the land suddenly beyond a beach
Of shapes and shingle. Here is unfenced existence:
Facing the sun, untalkative, out of reach.”

― Philip Larkin, The Whitsun Weddings

I started working on today post and I wanted to do it about wedding dresses. But suddenly I found like for serendipity and outfit that I love, it was totally the opposite of what I was thinking, nothing to do with wedding and black tie, then I quickened the previous idea and decided to deliver today some every day outfits, outfits that you can use in diverse occasions and more than one time. Wish you enjoy them all as much as me.

Audacious

Center

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.” ― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Sometimes you do not want to be the center of attention, but you irremediably get all the eyes on the room over you. Why? You have your own fashion style, for example. You dare to mix different textures and shapes. You use the colors that do not belong to the season.

A Good Match

A Good Match

“Life, it turns out, goes on. There is no cosmic rule that grants you immunity from the details just because you have come face-to-face with a catastrophe. The garbage can still overflow, the bills arrive in the mail, telemarketers, interrupt dinner.” ― Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match

Some weeks ago I went with my husband to Applebee’s, I ordered “Butcher’s Meat & Potatoes” I tasted delicious, just what I needed on that very cold day. I was warm and I the size was just exactly what I need. I do not remember now what my husband ordered, but he was not happy with his order. He liked it more mine. Then, recently I surprised him, cooking for him my own version of the Applebee’s menu the both enjoyed. I made the mash potatoes using Idaho’s  potatoes, a little milk and butter. On top I put the sirloin with the gravy and fry onions made by myself too. As a side I added asparagus and carrots and we also have a cup of red wine. I was an amazing night. He was very pleased with the results and felt complete making him so happy.  All was a good match for making both happy.

“Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem. Here’s to the hearts that ache. Here’s to the mess we make. She captured feeling, sky with no ceiling, the sunset inside with rain.

St. Patrick’s Day

May you always have…
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

Deep in my Soul, Love.

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”― Theodore Roosevelt

I had a terrible day, but a day full of patriotism and love the land that saved my family and me from political prosecution. Then I started today outfit with the colors of the flag, honoring that symbol of courage. After that some outfit with yellow, making the sun shine for you all, with love.

Firework of Celulose

Glitter

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Here you have an example that not all that shine is glitter. However nothing could bring more glitter to our lives that this dreamy image of a natural space. I loved to sped time at that backyard, sit there under the threes, between all the fallen leaves and enjoy the company of a good book. Is not this amazing? This piece of heaven on earth, motivated and inspired me. It made my blood rung through out my veins pleased to be on that healthy and natural environment.
