a little reminder

Written by
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

    Hello Erin,
    I came to your blog by Georgianna Lane who's pictures I adore! And the most beautiful flowers she just got before her lens where your flowers…and they are wonderful. So I needed to see who that "flower lady" was… and I came here.
    I want to say that you have such lovely flowers and I can see that you put a lot of love in what you are doing! I am a fan of you too!! Sorry for my bad English but I hope you understand what I wrote to you. Thank you for sharing your flowers with your (new) followers and the world… Greetings of Holland, Joyce Glim.
