Be Always Blooming

Today’s Like She Said is actually a Like I said.  I wanted to talk about Springtime a growth and I felt like layering some flowers so here goes. The quote “Be Always Blooming” for me is about our potential for growth. We are all always growing–every new thing that happens every day–every new person we encounter–every photo we snap, every conversation that we have, every wrong turn that we make and every right turn that we make has the potential to inspire growth. The word bloom, however, doesn’t just connote growth, it also connotes an opening, a freshness, a reaching and stretching towards the sky. When we get stuck in a rut, it is easy to forget that everyday we learn something new, every day we are growing and blooming–and this is meant to be a friendly reminder to be always blooming. Happy Springtime my friends, happy blooming.

On the last “Like She Said” post, Sarah requested a downloadable desktop wallpaper version of the series–which I thought was a great idea, so here is the first downloadable desktop wallpaper. Enjoy and happy Spring!

    What a great idea about the wallpaper! Hope you’ll continue doing that! A great spring has begun here in Norway also, no flowers yet though, but the official spring flower “hestehov” should be peeping throigh the small piles of snow that is left – any day now! Oh joyeous spring!! <3

      I will be heading to your next of the woods this month! I will be in Copenhagen for SIX weeks!! I’d love any pointers that you have (if you are familiar with Copenhagen at all)

        How exciting!! I’ve never been to Copenhagen myself, but talk about it just about every year.. But I do have a dear friend who lives there, and would know all the artsy design places to go – and where to get the best coffee’s and daytime-sweet-treats! I’ll ask her and let you know :-)
        What is it that you’re going all the way there for? Business or pleasure? :-) Bring a scarf!

          Oh that would be great!!! I’m going because my mother-in-law lives there–we’re using that as an excuse to “live” there for six weeks for a change of pace! I’ll be working from there :) And yes, I’ll bring a scarf! I’m chilly just thinking about it!

    Happy Spring (although it feels like it’s taking its sweet time arriving this year!). This is such a gorgeous image and quote. I like the word ‘blooming’ too because it’s got a certain strength to it too, amongst all the growth and flowering and softness. Blooming wonderful!

    clearly as if your web-site however, you ought to look into the punctuation upon many of the threads. A lot of them usually are filled having spelling difficulties and I still find it quite bothersome frankly nonetheless Let me certainly occur all over again just as before.
