I've had to drag out my summer shades a few times lately! One must always remember that squinting causes laugh lines and wrinkles. :)
Speaking of wrinkles, and of aging in particular...today is my birthday! My 53rd and counting to be exact! I am astounded that I'm this old!! I don't feel 53. But then again, how is one supposed to feel at this age? I feel older than I once did; of that I'm positive, but I don't feel old and in actuality I believe there are many benefits to having reached this specific time in my life. Many to be sure!! For one, I am again a great-great auntie. Yep!! And the newest member of our family was born this morning on my birthday!! How's that for a birthday gift? Pretty cool, I think!! I don't know her name, nor her weight, nor what she looks like...but of one thing I am sure...she shall and always will, hold a dear and special place in my heart because we share a birthday. What a blessing!!
So, I've been thinking about winter white lately, and various shades of whites and greys. White is quite underrated I think. Vanilla for example, a divine flavor on its' own and highly under-valued. Winter is full of white and probably so, because so much of what winter has to offer is otherwise quite bland. So we're given white and its' various shades to brighten things up a bit! A different kind of light in an otherwise barren season devoid of sunshine.

Depending on where you live, and what your winter weather woes have been, your appetite for warmer, brighter days may be overwhelming. But, hang in there my friends...only 2 more months of winter to go! Today charts the 1/3 of the way through winter mark!!! Spring's warmer and sunnier days are closer than you may think. Like the song says..."time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me".
Blessings everyone, Lorie @ Cingspots
