Live Simply

When asked what I wanted for Valentine's Day, I responded genuinely, a gallon of paint.

Not only did my husband buy me a can of paint and offered his help in painting, he also gave me some pretty pink roses.  And, this, genuinely made me happy.


 To my surprise, though, a few days later, a manilla envelope arrived.

The pretty label gave away what was inside.


I could not wait to open it.


Now, I just have to find a place to proudly display my beautiful print.


Though I was happy with my gallon of paint, for Valentine's Day...content to live simply, I am over the moon that my thoughtful husband went above and beyond and also bought me this beautiful print.

If you haven't already, visit The Painted Arrow.   She has a collection of beautiful, inspiring, colorful prints.

  2. it's so pretty - and the saying is what i'm striving for. another blog I read makes me realize I can live simply yet wonderfully, before I thot it would be stark and depriving but now I realize its just opposite.

    we share the same heart - paint and flowers! plus that print has some of my favorite flowers in it - peonies!
