:: Fall Into Happiness ::

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus

It's almost hard for me to believe that just one year ago today I posted the sad news that I, along with the rest of North America, lost my job. At the time I thought working for Fari International was the best thing that could have ever happened to me, and that losing my job meant losing a part of me. A happy part of me.

But, since then I've found my happy place again.  Doing maybe not bigger and better things, but other things. Things that I had no idea could make me so happy. I've really come to love my new job as a designer at De La Rose. And honestly, if you would have told me this is where I'd be a year ago today, I probably would've just laughed. Isn't it amusing how we all just kind of somehow find our place?  

And aside from the flower shop, how fabulous that I've still been able to continue my passion for interior design through projects of my own. I guess what I'm trying to say is that somehow every Fall I seem to reflect on the good things in life and how truly grateful I am for the ups and downs, the closed doors and especially those open windows, because it's there that I truly fall into happiness. You know what they say: "Every end is a new beginning." Happy 1st Day of Fall!

Lovely way to look at it! I'm lovin' that room with the flower arrangement and candles burning...makes me wish it wasn't so HOT and HUMID here so I could get in the mood for fall! I love fall too!
