I have come to realize that sometimes it’s not the most profound conversations that stick with me. More often than not, its a few words, a quote or a simple statement that make the most impact on me.  With that said, I am starting a new series here on the blog called “Happy Friday” where I will post a quick bit of inspiration featuring a quote accompanied by a photo (or a few!). This was something I have been debating on for a bit but quickly realized something: who doesn’t like a little inspiration and a bit of “happy” to kick off the weekend!?!  IMG_2779.JPG

As a California native, I have never had the opportunity of experiencing true seasons. It is officially winter and the temperatures dipped into the low 70’s today. I am still waiting the arrival of the storms affectionately nicknamed El Nino that the weather forecasters predict are coming. Because we are experiencing a drought in California I welcome El Nino with open arms. Bring it on! I know many of my readers are located in parts of this country and beyond who are in the midst of experiencing a harsh Winter and many may be anxiously awaiting Spring. Although I am enjoying this California weather I really can’t wait for the arrival of the beautiful blooms that erupt in the Springtime. So for today I leave us all with a few charming arrangements by Yasmine Floral Design in Los Angeles.

How right it is to love flowers and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning. –Vincent van Gogh

    Great new series. I’m always happy to read some inspirational words while viewing some gorgeous images. Wow, those flower arrangements make me wish for spring, and winter is such a favorite season with me. (Probably because as a native Californian, like you, we’ve never really had to deal with hurricanes or blizzards). 🙂
    Have a wonderful weekend.
