Finally, it’s June and so we reluctantly welcome the rising temperatures but being to surround ourselves with plans and lots of iced lattes to keep us going. There’s always a beauty in every season and summer is no different. I got some new plants from The Sill including a Peperomia Ripple Ruby as well as a Calathea Fusion White beauty.
When I think of summer the concepts that come to mind are carefree days, firefly filled nights, winding down but also filling in as many plans as one can. There’s definitely wanderlust brewing and car rides with the windows down and the music flowing.
This is completely belated but, never late than never right? May has been a really busy month: work wise and creatively. I’ve definitely taken the time this month to have more experiences and gatherings. A few of my loved ones had birthdays this month. I think I spent more time venturing out and speaking my truth instead of sitting idly when there’s something I want.
I’ve realized that there’s a difference between being in observation (or present) versus in thinking mode which can have your thoughts jumping to conclusions or focused too much on the past or future, things in which we have no control. This month I emphasized my thoughts on what I wanted in that moment. This led me to sleep earlier and therefore I have been waking up earlier.
It’s all cozy here in November. Low temperatures and dusk sets in around 5. There is a calmer atmosphere to the days and a desire to go inward.
Hygge is the Danish concept of coziness and mindfulness. Embracing the season you are in an making the time to care for oneself. When it comes to the mindset of cold autumn nights, transitioning to winter light – I reach toward an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
October is my preferred month. It’s when the colors change into vibrant hues: the yellow & red of tree tops, soon to fall leaving behind a dance of leaves and whispering branch-song. The temperatures drop as we seek to find warmth in cozy knits + by the fire.
There are still a few days before October ends. I added some new pieces to my room in honor of fall + gathering. Like crunchy leaves and the lovely sunsets permeating you to wake. I wish Octobers were endless. Nothing beats being curled up in a blanket watching Hocus Pocus with a slice of pumpkin pie + cider.
