Living wabi sabi

"Wabi sabi celebrates the beauty and allure of imperfection....
the cozy familiarity of a worn-out pair of jeans,
the rustic elegance of an old Italian villa,
the faded splendor of well-used china
handed down from your grandmother's attic."
-Taro Gold

Wabi sabi is acceptance and appreciation of what is.
I try to live my life in a wabi sabi sort of way - enjoying this moment 
and attempting to find beauty in the very ordinary-ness of daily life.

One of my favorite books is the wabi-sabi house by Robyn Griggs Lawrence.

Hope you have a great weekend!
I am going over to Sarasota to share some time with family and friends
and hopefully have a little time to hit Sarasota Art & Frame to pick up a few supplies.
I am looking forward to the drive over through Myakka River State Park - 
it is so beautiful and I always see a variety of Florida wildlife.
