To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

I love, love, love the first two and last one. Thank you for finding beauty in everyday life. And helping me find it too :)

My pleasure :-)
The kids thought it was a big deal because we moved the couch and rolled up the rug...rearranging furniture and putting post-it notes all over the walls always adds excitement.
