Rainy Friday!


Dark, cloudy, rainy, thunder, wind and nothing but candles and warm glow throughout the house.


There's something about a candle lit atmosphere, especially in the kitchen.


Along with the glow of candles, my house is covered in the lovely scent of Hyacinths.



Candles on the window sill



Candles on the display case


In the corner of the living room


On the ottoman


And even on the TV cabinet


And all the while, big fat raindrops splashed on the driveway sending droplets flying every which way


the newly grown seedlings rejoiced and seem to stretch towards the sky


For some it may seem like just a rainfall, but God has taught me to truly enjoy every single moment in my life and to look at what is around me as if I'm seeing it for the first time.

Since I've changed my outlook on life, I tend to enjoy my days that much more.

Think I'll go have a cup of coffee and sit under the covered patio enjoying the rain!

I love to sit in a quiet, warm, cosy house with a small lamp or candles lit as the rain pours outside. Love it! :)

I'm so in love with this post. I know I'm a little late. Just trying to get caught up. The candles and flowers are amazing. I'm so jealous of your ability to keep flowers alive.
