Ah my dear readers, here we all are…..at home. My fiance and I are sharing space here in our small apartment which at times seems smaller than it really is if you know what I mean🤪 Thankfully the weather here in Dallas has been absolutely gorgeous, sunshine with crystal clear blue skies allowing me to spend a lot of time in my backyard by myself. Feeling one with nature as I sit in self reflection. Here is some of the beauty Mother nature has shared with me over the past 2 days….
Just last evening at dusk while I was gazing up at this tree in my neighbor’s backyard….I came up with this poem📝
I have been using my free time quite constructively, squeezing all of the creative juices I can muster into my passions. I made pasta primavera for lunch and then afterwards I felt inclined to lace up my tap dance shoes for a bit of toe tapping💃
I’ve told y’all before that I am a Jersey girl, half Italian, Puerto Rican and Venezuelan with a splash of Polish. During these uncertain times we must keep our spirits up and tap our toes to the rhythm of our soul….mine’s extra seasoned y’all💃🤗❤✌
This post focuses on the lighter side of this forced down time aka 24/7 with my partner. Honestly it hasn’t always been a ball of laughter and smiles. Tomorrow I plan on writing a more serious and insightful post that looks at how very challenging this time has been for my fiance and I. It’s been over eighteen months since we have had this much down time AND spent this much time with each other with no reprieve. As much as we love each other….oh boy have we both gotten in each other’s space in an annoying way 🙄 Lincoln holds the title of being the only man I have ever allowed get close enough to me to even urk my nerves. But that’s for tomorrow’s post my dear readers.
For tonight, let me leave you with this. This is what is printed across the shirt that I’m wearing in the tap dancing video:
GIVE LOVE ❤ SHARE LAUGHTER 🤣 GROW PLANTS 🌱 FIND PEACE ✌ CHASE DREAMS 🌠 SPREAD HOPE🙏
