Bubbles

Hey! 🙂

So, I have always wanted a green dress. ALWAYS!!! My little wish came true recently when I found this little number at Forever 21. I modified the length, and voilà!

It is the exact shade of green I have always wanted in a dress. Green is a color I really like in particular shades, and this is one of them!

It’s very lightweight and perfect for a casual summer look. Doesn’t hot pink and green go perfectly together?? ♥

On a more serious note though, today I wore this dress to my brother-in-law’s Celebration of Life memorial service. It was a very beautiful event. ♥  It was amazing and heartfelt to hear people’s stories about him.

Ironically, a year ago on this very same day, June 30th, I was with my sister and brother-in-law seeing Ghost in concert for the first time. We all had a great time and it’s one of my favorite memories…it’s just strange to think a year in the future, I’d be at his memorial service.

Interesting thing that happened today at the service: my sister received an anonymous small bouquet of white carnations. Nobody knows who it was from. Apparently someone pulled up, only came up as far as the driveway and asked someone heading into the house to give the carnations to her. My sister didn’t recognize the person based on the description given, so they may have just been the deliverer. She really loves the carnations and wonders who they are from, since there was no note on it. Life’s mysteries…♥

A few evenings ago, I had some time to spare while waiting to go to dinner with one of my friends. What better way than to spend it blowing bubbles?!

I honestly hadn’t blown bubbles in forever. It just felt like such a whimsical, spontaneous thing to do, and it was unexpectedly rather therapeutic…

I played Ruby Tuesday by the Rolling Stones on my phone and literally sat there blowing bubbles for a few solid minutes. It was a very beautiful moment, as silly as it may sound.

It was like reverting back to a means of simple childhood bliss. Seeing all the colors in each bubble, reflecting in the sunlight was simply beautiful to look at. It’s the times like that when you’re fully engrossed in the beauty of a moment, in which the heavy things in life don’t feel like such a shadow.  ♥

Every moment is a gift. Just like the lyrics in the song:

“There’s no time to lose, I heard her say.
Catch your dreams before they slip away.”

  1. Your new dress is lovely; very wood sprite-like. Green and pink always go great together! Your brother-in-law’s memorial service sounds beautiful. I’m glad that you have the memory of seeing Ghost with him and your sister. Also, the part about the bubbles is very fitting, especially where you say, “when you’re fully engrossed in the beauty of a moment, in which the heavy things in life don’t feel like such a shadow.”

  2. I know it can seem a bit childish but I love blowing bubbles too ! I think every summer there’s a time where I’ll just sit outside and watch the bubbles fly in the air.. usually when I am at the lake enjoying the sun 🙂
