As I took this photo yesterday,
the term, "whatever floats your boat" came to mind.
I love this definition from The Urban Dictionary and the phrase, whatever "soothes your soul".
Sitting in the garden lazily looking at decorating books, I was reflecting on what "soothes my soul" when Steve dropped some mail onto the table.
Reading letters from former students, despite the tears that flowed, definitely soothed my soul.
This beautiful young lady who played on my volleyball team and was in my AVID class wrote to let me know that she had graduated from high school and is off to UC Santa Cruz in fall.
Nini remembered my blog and said she included the card for me to display in the house.
Decorating is always something I "feel like doing",
but I am not doing much lately because I am knee deep in wedding decorations.
Creating for this wedding brings me more pleasure than I could imagine.
The guest book is finished - except for flowers that the florist will add to the card catalogue.
I love the quote Aylin chose for the papier mache books I painted - it sums up the "Love Story" of the two English majors.
Lately, taking photographs is a daily activity that "floats my boat".
Every single day, I take one photo to post on Instagram.
And now I'm wondering, what "floats your boat"?
