Pretty and Pink

"Dwell on the beauty of life.
Watch the stars, and see yourself
running with them."
             ~Marcus Aurelius

   I am trying to learn how to relax and slow down a little. I'm not very good at it. It's summer but it still feels like I'm rushing everywhere and worrying about everything. I have a week long holiday starting monday and I plan to totally de-stress - easier said than done with me but I'm trying! I always admire people who seem so serene and calm about life. What happens happens and it doesn't get to them, or at least it doesn't appear to. I want to be like that! Summer 2012 goal: become serene! At any rate I am slowing down a little - at least in my thoughts. No more frenzy!
I did a few random pictures this week which without really meaning to have all turned out rather PINK. I hope you like them and are enjoying your summers, remembering to relax, and appreciating the simplicity of a beautiful life.

  1. Such beautiful pinks, oh my word, just gorgeous!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Jennelise!

  2. A truly beautiful pink presentation. I think we all should live each day the best we can. Worry never solves anything. Just makes you older. I may get concerned about things, but I am not a worrier. My husband did enough of that for both of us.

  3. Happy Pink Saturday Jennelise, Your photos are beautiful. I find them very calming to look at so you have a good start on trying to slow things down and relax. Thanks for your visit and comment. I hope you enjoy your week off. Joyous Wishes, Linda
