Ordinarily Silly

Bouquet of Freshly Sharpened Pencils | Silly, ordinary and beautiful | Chapel Hill Wedding Photography Whenever I watch "You've Got Mail" I always get struck by the lines written to the heroine from her unknown love, "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."

It is as silly line of whims but it strikes me none-the-less.  There is beauty in the simple things.  How I want a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils now!  That feeling of warmth at the idea of finding beauty in the day to day.  I just love it.  Too often I get bogged down in seeing all there is to do or watching the last moments of vacation slip away or how the months seem to fill.... instead of looking at the beauty that is silly sharpened pencils.

So on this Monday of Mondays I challenge you to find your silly "sharpened pencils" and look on the bright side of the ordinary and take full advantage of the only March 24th 2014 we will ever get a chance to enjoy!

Live. Love. Loud.
