It’s been a long while since I have written. The time away has made me miss the photo-journaling and regular updates and I feel ready to get back on track.
There was a moment today that encouraged me to include this short post before I start making dinner. I was sitting on the sofa watching Chef’s Table on Netflix, and suddenly, the room filled with the wonderful scent of lavender. It was soft, comforting, and evoked feelings of calmness or dreaminess. I forgot about the television. I lost myself momentarily as I deeply inhaled this beautiful fragrance. As the calming voice of Chef Ben Shewry slowly brought me back into the present, I wanted to document this moment, because it felt so wonderful. This is the type of moment I want to be able to bring myself back to when I am feeling frazzled; this meditative moment.
The lavender arrived by post a few days ago. I purchased it with the intention of sewing lavender sachets as gifts. The Moda fabrics I chose from Sew Sisters in Toronto also make my heart smile. This is a just a small sampling of what they carry. They have so many gorgeous designs. I will be certain to provide an updated post once the sachets are made.
