Secret Garden

In my secret garden the sun does not always shine. Sometimes it sprinkles, sometimes it rains.  Even then beneath the clouds I look for beauty, and where there are puddles, space to dance around them. Autumn’s chill blows fallen petals and leaves, but I do not worry. For I know its life is only sleeping and in due time its joy always blooms again.

    What a soft, pretty, unique coat and a luscious pashmina! I love the play of blues against the plant life and detailing of the building.

    Blue is such a beautiful and flattering color on you! you make it looks so feminine, I know a lot of people who are very strict about blue for boys and pink for girls, but really it doesnt matter. I think you are the proof!

    Yes, the coat is gorgeous, and you too, but I agree with your mom, the most important thing is the way you go through your life: in a positive way.

    Tomorrow will be another day.

    All the best,
