Stopping to smell the fleurs at My Petite Maison

Wanted to wish you a new beautiful week from My Petite Maison to follow your dreams.  

That's what I'm doing...  and I'm trying my best to enjoy the trip along the way too.  Not putting so much pressure for things to be "just right" but breathing and letting things at times, fall as they may and be alright with that too.

Going to strive to let things be...  just a little more this week.

 Not saying I'll be able to... but will try, my absolute best, I will.  

Be creative, but not in a hurry, it takes time.

We're having a few days of unseasonably cool weather.  I'm planning on taking advantage of it and working on the porch on my laptop and in the yards listening to the breezes through our trees.

Wishing you a wonderful week of stopping to smell the fleurs along the beautiful road of lovely life!

This has been a strange summer here in Texas weather wise. It's been hot, but not the "melt the thermometer" heat we usually have by this time and way more rain.
The results? The chance to spend more time outside smelling the roses without bursting into flames!
Love the critter cage. Pigeon/dove box?

Love your photo's, their gorgeous. It's so nice that your taking a little break. I closed my website down recently to take a break for 1 month. I havent' had a break in the last 15 years and decided it was time. I was so tired and stressed, so it's been wonderful. I will take a break at least once a year to stop and smell the roses!!!
Blessing~~~ Daphne

Hi sweet Tracie!

I've been trying to stop & smell the roses but it's just been too hot here to go outside!! LOL So I just admire them from the window!!

Love your photography as always. Stop by and see our inspirational post on lampshade frames... I think you'll like it.

I'm having so much fun sharing Marie's blog. I'm her writer for now and it's been great!

Big hugs, "Edie" (& Marie)

Tracie how true that is! And you have such a lovely space to enjoy the cooler weather!

Sometimes I need a little, quiet break to get my creative juices flowing. I am always amazed how much it recharges me!

Have a wonderful week!
