Words to live by...

     "To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard think quietly, talk quietly, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, to all bravely await occasions, hurry never.  
In a word, to that the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.  This is to be my symphony."

William Henry Channing (1810-1884)

Live a life both big and simple...

The above quote was chosen by Splenderosa who asked many bloggers to express the things in life that are important.  I love her idea and am thrilled to express my own version of living life in content.


  1. We have to seize these moments where we find them, right?

  2. So important to take a moment out of the vagaries of life...to actually live!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration and reminder to live life to the fullest!
    Angela and Renee

  4. Yes, those are images of contentment! I want to give a big AHHHHHHH, and relax into this post!
    I am so happy to be a part of this group of wonderful and talented women just like you!
