red wine and wild flowers

flowers are something i dread giving up with the change from summer to fall. i've recently learned from a good mentor and friend these small steps to a little bit of happiness.

1 > invest in a good hair cut and hair colour
2 > drink a tad more than an appropriate amount of red wine
3 > surround your world with wild and fresh flowers

i'm gradually learning the importance of filling my life with beautiful things - ones that lie beyond the material and might actually provide some sense of fulfillment. for me, flowers definitely tend to be one of those things.

and while i'm on the subject. i must mention how lovely the military jacket and floral dress combination is in the photo above. how effortlessly cool of her.
