It so happened the other day that I was looking for inspiration on Instagram, which has been my favorite place to go lately, and I fell in love with the sunshine coming in from these windows. It was obvious!
We are already a month into fall but the days are still warm here – warm enough that you can’t sit outside in the morning with a book or a knitting project or maybe invite a friend over coffee to sit on the patio and talk about all the good things in the world. I so look forward to do all these little full-of-joy things but I guess we’ll have to wait for a few more weeks. It won’t be long…
That makes me think a lot about fall dinners… everyone else is talking about them on their blogs and it gets me inspired. I’d be sharing a little about simple table scape in a while… but for now… that can wait too.
I can instantly fall for any space that has good natural light and ventilation, actually I can’t practically without them. Speaking of that, I’ve lived all my life in homes that had plenty of both and I can’t be more grateful. And as I write these words, I’m glad that I can see outside a large window of my bedroom and admire plus soak up the gorgeous sunshine.
“Good natural light and ventilation in a space are as good as food”
Living in a happy space (yes, I call a space happy if it has good light and air) brings so much clarity of mind. It does in my case. I truly love to spend a few minutes that I could steal in between household chores to sit by the window with a cup of tea and newspaper or a book and enjoy the calmness and stillness in the moment. Well, a lot of times this includes catching up on a few latest posts from blogs I love. It gives me a space and moment to think about what I’ve read and absorb all the love those stories share…. to imagine and feel what made these stories come into being… what inspired them…
I do a lot of thinking while I’m doing the dishes and sometimes get my best ideas too.
So, yes, I would love to be in all those spaces doing whatever I love doing at the moment and let the sunlight do its magic. It’s obvious!
