Believe In Magic

I believe in magic,
comes unexpectedly
softly whispers secrets
our hearts .

It's magical 
 hummingbirds are so tiny 

that basil thrives in the hot sun

that perfect margaritas are so easy to make

that the farmers market is filled with so much homegrown goodness 

that dinner with a good friend can be so beautiful

that white doves are so easy to raise and oh so lovely

that home will always be where your heart is

I believe in magic........
that magical moments happened 
to those who seek them.

  2. I'm a believer too dear Dottie.

    Lovely photos and thoughts.

    I just had a margarita by myself last evening. :-) Not as magical without my DH, but still magical.

    Your home is decorated so wonderfully and is an inspiration to me.

  4. Oh Dottie! I believe in magic, too. I believe it is all around us and that God grants us the ability to see beautiful magical moments if we are willing to open our eyes to them- xo Diana
