colors of shadow, light & life

Hello everyone!

Jacket: Ralph Lauren     Jeans: 7 for All Mankind     Blouse: Ann Taylor

Shoes: Luiza Barcelos      Bag: Balenciaga


I’m thankful for….

The taxes I pay because it means I’m employed.

The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

A lawn that has to be mowed, windows that has to be washed and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.

The spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I’m capable of walking.

All the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.

The huge piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.

The alarm that goes off early in the morning hours because it means I’m alive.

My daughter found this list on the internet…isn’t it a wonderful reminder?  Thanks Jordan for sending this to me. 🙂

Linking up with Visible Monday and Monday Mingle!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! 🙂
    I must say, you look great, your outfit is lovely, fresh and chic!
    We take a lot of things for granted in our lives and forget how they are not….how easily they can be taken away or how other people suffer because they can’t do what we do..naturally…thank you for sharing this.

    • Hi Katherine,
      These are tough times for a lot of people around the world…..I’m guilty of taking my blessings for granted. I definitely need daily reminders.
      Thanks for visiting!

  3. Jeannie, you look gorgeous in these colors and that bird of inspiration, I love it! I love that last picture of you smiling. And your bag and shoes, so cute, little toes. 🙂

    • Thank you Rachel!
      You know, I get inspiration from nature all the time….what’s more beautiful than God’s creations?! I see perfect color combinations in animals, birds, plants, trees, flowers, and even rocks. Thank goodness I live in the mountains where I see the beauty everyday!

    And on a little bit of a lighter note, the cut of your jacket is so flattering & a fab color too!

  7. I really like the red Jacket. I love the ” I’m Thankful” list as I have never seen a list of anything like this as far as being thankful for them goes ;p. Have a fantastic and safe day. God Bless = )

    • Thank you Breana!
      I can’t take credit for the list….my daughter found it online. She thought it was worth reading and sent it to me. I felt it was so wonderful and wanted to share.
      Glad you liked it. Happy weekend!

  8. Love the shoes with those dark jeans. This look is one I wear frequently. I like the simple, chic look of a fitted pant, blouse and blazer. Thanks for reminding us of all that we should feel thankful for 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend!


  9. Want the shoes!!!!!! Clean and classic as always. What i love about you, always hip without trying too hard… in wearing tons of stuff at once…..You look so darn good at 50ish!!! I’m 50 in a couple of weeks. Sure helps knowing I have a beautiful, fashionable friend like you!!!

    • You are such a sweetie! Thank you Judy!
      Big 50 was really tough for me but I survived and so will you. 🙂 Let me know when your birthday is so I can properly send you a birthday wish!

  10. Love the color combination — and that you posted the pic showing where they occur in nature! i was skipping along merrily through the pics, and then got to the shoes! Yummy! Have a great weekend!

  11. It’s always good to be reminded of what we have and be thankful for all the joys and comforts we are already enjoying.
    I love the military band styled jacket… And you are in my national colours too! 🙂
