A Month of Lists: June 5

Ways I Treat Myself

Occasional handmade chocolates 

Browsing antique stores
(my favorite collection is my stash 
of lace-edged white handkerchiefs)

Walking along the edge of the ocean --
that liminal space where you get giddy
from all the ions in the air --
and listening to the crash of the waves.

Creating and eating beautiful,healthy food.

Buying and arranging fresh flowers.
I especially love lilacs, sweet peas, sunflowers,
and peonies.

Shopping at my favorite garden nurseries.

Making sure my space is aesthetically pleasing.

Taking time to delight in the world around me.
