Yesterday afternoon, the deep gray sky finally started giving way to the sun. It seemed unsure at first—the clouds were holding steady in the sky only letting a sliver of blue peak out at a time. But by the time I'd gotten home in the evening, the sun was shining brightly and it felt as if I had no choice but to take a walk to soak some of it in.
I go through phases where access to sunlight impacts me more than others, and most of the time, I'd say that I hardly notice the difference. But this week—when I was adjusting to a new workspace where I'd lost my previously lovely view of the sky—I felt like I was dragging. And the rainy days certainly weren't helping. Thankfully, yesterday's break in the weather came at just the right time. I needed that sun and while it took the whole evening to pull myself out of the funky mood that I'd picked up throughout the day (which was 99% induced by the DMV), I know the sun helped me get back to feeling like me. Today, the sun is out again, I had breakfast with some of my favorite people here, and there's a garden outside of the office where I can sit and eat my lunch. All of which seems like a perfect thing to do on a Friday.
As is staring at this image, which reminds me of the yard around the house where I grew up. We had these flowers near our back door in various shades of pinks and purples and I always loved having them around in the summer. I'm glad that's May's mini print of the month—this is called Spring Blossoms V from Shartreuse on etsy, who had another print on the etsy home page today—that will always remind me of that door and that house, where I started to become who I am today.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
