A last stroll through the garden...


I decided to take a break from packing and sorting for our unexpected move and take a quick stroll through the yard to see what was blooming. I have been so blessed to live in a home where the flowers are nearly always something worth seeing and today was no different. The roses in particular are lovely right now, so I captured a few photos to share with you. Hope you enjoy these little bits of beauty from my garden.
On the moving front, I do have wonderful news. We found a new house to rent in our neighborhood, which we love so much, thanks to our fabulous neighbors. In fact, we are still going to be living on the same block, just around the corner, which will make moving much easier. We've leased an absolutely adorable Craftsman beach cottage, complete with outdoor shower for washing off the sand and white picket fence ~ how fabulous is that? The owners are finishing up some work inside and we will be able to move in next month. I'll share some photos of our new place as soon as I am able.
In other happy news, it's also my blog anniversary this weekend ~ The Art of Living Beautifully is officially 2 years old. Thanks to all of you who keep reading.
