Lavender Adventures of One

Today, I took the day for me. Not for the likes, or the backhanded comments; littered on social media.

No.

I adventured for me. Only Me.

I decided to dust off the lavender dress; I had yet to wear.

Grabbed my tripod, a home brewed coffee and a stellar playlist.

Excitement readied me. Today, I would conquer a fear.

Photos in public; create many tears. Today, I knew it would be the mark of my year. –>

Lavender Fields created the wheels of inspiration

—> I started in the rose garden. During peak hours. I was met with some stares, and glares of awe. I even had a little one pose with me. To her I was a mystical princess, that had lost her way to the castle. Little did she know, the brave face that met her with a smile, would radiate even more; from our small encounter.

As the princess; I was determined to be. I took my time; wandering the roses. Finding the perfect angles, to create an image that I was proud of. I stumbled upon many beautiful things.

A greenhouse, that simply embodied my need for cottage living. For every little creature to be welcomed in my garden. In the distance of the greenhouse, I found the roses. Orange, red, tints of yellow hues that nature would only have the power to create.

The rose garden is known for their abundance of greenery and radiant florals. There are many types of flowers to fit all interests. Here are a few of my favorite ones.

Do you have a favorite flower? (Comment Below)

Seeing every flower, as bright as they were. Made me realize being unique is the way to be. If everything was the same, there would be nothing creative about this world. Our uniqueness is what makes life worth living.

There was this quote that I wanted to leave you with:

“Don’t Bend Yourself to Fit Inside A Mold- Live For You. Enjoy You.”

โ€” Dottie XOXO

Try not to convince yourself that you need to bend yourself to fit inside a mold- because HONEY, there is No mold. There is no concrete way of doing things. As a creator, an innovator; you were meant to create in a way that only you can. That is what you have to remember.

You set all the rules. NO ONE ELSE. BE the Princess of your fairytale.

I cannot wait to hear about your adventures!! Especially during this time of social distancing. Remember, you are not alone. Everyone needs a minor spark time and again.

I hope to see you again soon!! Don’t be a stranger! Lots of Love.

Dottie.

A Playlist that Santa would steal

Yippee! ย We are on Day Five of Blogmas! WHAT WHAT!! I can say we are off to a very good start this blogmas!

With Christmas still so far away. Also just getting over the Thanksgiving holiday, I thought we could start early with the whole Christmas vibe. I know it seems so far away, at least for me that is but I have finished all of my christmas shopping already. So naturally it is time for the decorations to be brought out.

Plus my oven is in overdrive for the endless amount of cookies to be coming out of my kitchen this month. Keep in mind I do not bake; like ever! So I can only hope my family likes the taste of semi burnt cookies; it’s the thought that counts; right?

In my house we have a tradition while decorating and baking cookies, it’s creating an exceptional playlist that you will not get tired of hearing. I know some of you are already rolling your eyes at the idea of hearing christmas music but tis the season!

So I thought hey why not share my Christmas playlist with you this year. I am warning you these songsย  will get you in a joyful mood, and they are a perfect start to a cozy night of decorating. So here are a few of my go tos on my playlist that I thought you might love to add to your own playlists.
