Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Friend-Making Monday: 5 Things

It's Friend Makin Monday! This week's question: List 5 things {aside from the obvious} that you love.

A lot of these are spring and summer focused since that is where my mind is right now.

1. Travel, especially cruising! I really think this is where my current passion lies at the moment. I dream of travel, think of travel, plan travel in my head, look forward to traveling... it used to be very self-centered, but now I even want to help my friends, family and coworkers plan their travel adventures!

2. Beach decor. If I could decorate my entire house with this theme, I totally would! I've condensed it down to just our master bedroom, but I keep finding such cute stuff that the bedroom is filling up! I'd love to extend the theme into the living room as well. Maybe some day. I just find it so peaceful, and it reminds me of my #1 love of traveling to beachy locations!

3. Fresh-cut flowers. I know so many people think buying fresh-cut flowers is wasteful because they just die, but I love having them in the house! I'd have a vase of flowers in every room if I could! I especially like bright-colored blooms like these ones!

4. Spending lovely spring and fall days in Boston. Every time the weather is in the uppper 60's and sunny, I dream of just roaming the streets of Boston. I took it for granted when I was in college and could walk around the city every day, and now I miss it so much! Morning, afternoon, evening, doesn't matter. Spring and fall is when Boston shines.

5. The perfect day at a beautiful beach. I know we have the beach theme above too, but I love the ocean, what can I say? This picture is of Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda, which is one of my favorite beaches that I have ever been to. The sand and water were so perfect, and all of the rock formations add visual and exploratory interest. Nothing soothes me more than the sound of waves crashing on the shore.

Ok, now it's your turn! Head over to Amber's blog to link up, and tell me five things that you love!

All pictures are my own except for the fresh-cut flowers and the beach decor.
