friday finds...6.28.13 edition

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance"
 ~Bern Williams~

It is the end of the week and time for my favorite find.  Friday Finds is a place to gather and share...a chance to cherish life's simple pleasures...

My find this week is once again a little different from the norm.  My find this week is time. 
 A chance for me to step away from all distractions...a chance to renew.  Even if it is only minutes a day...i am finding that it helps me so much when i am faced with my daily challenges.  
I do not know about you, but i am always putting myself last...even the dogs get more of my attention than i give myself!  
So this week i have tried hard to find some time for myself....reading, napping, stitching, knitting....just enjoying some peace and quiet from life's busy summer days.

Today i am linking up with Kim Klassen's Friday Finds.  If you have a moment be sure to click on the beautiful button below to discover more beautiful finds.

Until next time...
p.s.  now i am headed out to my porch to read and enjoy my hydrangeas...


  1. I know exactly how you feel. I put myself last for a long time, and even still when Mallory comes home, I put what I want to do until the end of the day, and then I am too tired. It is important to nourish ourselves with some alone time.

  2. I feel the same way and had a day like that yesterday when I was working on my Grandson's post...I have my Friday find but no time today...I'll get to it though and I also have my lesson for this week...but again, needs processing.
    Good for you for finding the time and doing it...It is a beautiful post...I love it.

  3. Such a beautiful image Nancy I'm glad you took some time for yourself....

  4. A lady after my own heart when needing a bit of time to yourself to do whatever calls to your creative soul....

    A pretty find as I was at the nursery yesterday looking at all the lovely Hydrangea varieties available.... I found a miniature pink one I'd love to buy, perhaps next time.

    Your collection of classes look alluring as I'm going to hop around to see what they are.

    Have a nice weekend,

  5. This is such a lovely shot! And I think the quote is very true. I hope you've found a bit of peace and quiet to recharge your batteries.

  6. Your hydrangea presentation is soooo romantic! Great photo, lovely quote.

  7. Your image reflects beautifully your desire to refresh yourself. I am so proud of you for taking some time to do some of the things that you renew your spirit.

  8. exquisite photo...and excellent self-advice!

  9. Beautifully displayed Nancy.

  10. Oh, Nancy, I am so with you on this. I give 110% on my job and it can be a tough balancing act. I hear that porch swing calling me...

  11. Whew. Can I relate to this post! Beautifully said.
    And your choice of flowers is so restful & so evocative of summer!
    Lovely to visit your spot here (via 'Friday Finds').
