Thought of the day...

"Life is short, and it is up to you to make it sweet." ~ Sarah Louise Delany

Belated Bonne anniversaire to my sweet French sister, Rhonda, hoping you had the most sweetest birthday ever yesterday.

Since, I'm feeling quite French today, hop on over to another sweet friend of mine, Dionne's blog: City of Dionne...
where she talks about one of my favourite movies, Amelie and hosted a sweet Amelie will just love all the sweet details she created for her party...

I'm pretty sure you'll be inspired with all the beauty she put into this gorgeous party!

Well, It's raining cats+dogs today but seeing this photo I took with my sis, Mary Ann,

is really making my day a whole lot sweeter...

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday...

bon temps...xoxox

Welcome November...always bring your own sunshine...

Photo taken by Labour of Love. Taken at UW Arboretum.

Today's weather was far from being the beautiful day as depicted in the above photo.
It was cold, dreary, wet and just plain miserable.
But if we could treat each day like it was something maginificent, wow...where would we be? More importantly, where would I be?!
I love quotes. I'm so happy to have stumbled upon the following quotes...they are truly words of inspiration and motivate me to accomplish much + have a great day! I hope you do too...

"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." ~Anthony J. DiAngelo

November’s sky is chill and drear... November’s leaf is red and sear.
~Sir Walter Scott

Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods. ~William Allingham

Good news, I finally mailed off my Pay it Forward package to a sweetheart on the West Coast.
Once things settle, I'll be able to post some pics of her lil' package and our Halloween soirees!
Whatever you do today, just remember to 'always bring your own sunshine...'

bonne nuit

Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile...

Here is my October 2011 Desktop Calendar. Autumn is one of our favourite season...we love when the leaves change into their vibrant + glorious colours. For a couple of weeks it hit 80 degrees...but today it has been raining like cats+dogs all day...

This shot was taken nearby UM-Wisconsin Arboretum. Two canoers just started their journey on Lake Winagra. I wanted to capture the Fall beauty...I truly love seeing all the different colours through my camera lens. It was a perfect shot!

What are you planning for this weekend?!

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the beautiful Fall weather! Until next time...

au revoir xoxo
