Going to switch up my regular Friday photo post for this fabulous new year.
I've decided to do a little pairing. My daughter, as I've mentioned before, loves words and quotes - she's been collecting them in notebooks all her life. She is going to send me one of her favorite quotes each week and I'm going to forage through the folders of photographs I've taken and see if I can find one that will perhaps enhance the words. Don't know if I will always have one to fit either visually or emotionally but I'll give it go anyway.
"The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit." –Nelson Henderson
This quote, while metaphorically has many levels and meanings, made me think quite literally of Frederick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park (where I took the photo). He was very concerned with how the park would grow and be used and enjoyed by future generations.
I'm not sure what to call this new weekly post. "the pairing", "mother/daughter", "she read, she saw" etc. etc. - any ideas out there?
Aw I like this pairing a lot. And I didn't know that's how central park was built...I wonder if people who are building things/parks today think in that way?!
I like the pairing.
And I LOVE the idea!
Can't wait to see the future ones.
Today's - awesome. Off to a grand start.
Happy Weekend All!
Love this idea! I like "she read, she saw". Happy Friday!
Beautiful. Funny, how we in the Midwest, forget the color green in the winter.
wow that's a great idea! Oh a title... um... I'm horrible at those... but I love the idea. I like quotes too!
I'm a quote gal. I can't stop myself...
Love the quote/pic feature! Yes, I think "she read, she saw" is a good title.
Wonderful quote - have never heard that one! And such a lovely image - Olmstead was indeed a master!
Nice quote--and my favorite park! (Taking the dog there later) I like the idea of your pairing--and its so great that you do it with your daughter! have a fab weekend-barbara
I kinda like 'she read/she saw' as well. Nice job on the first one. It will be fun to see how this progresses!
This is cool. Does your daughter read your blog?? I hope she does since she has so much influence on you and your blog.
Yes Lisa, she not only contributes but you can read her comments daily - she is MJM.
I really love this post idea and I didnt know that about central part! You did such a great job pairing the quote with the photo. Its brilliant!
Happy weekend, my dear
love that quote. happy weekend!
What a fabulous idea for a weekly feature!
Jeanette this is such a wonderful idea! I love it. That picture is breath taking with all of the natural beauty it captures. That quote is surely one to live by.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, you sure do have a special bond with your daughter... such a beautiful thing!
what a great idea!! I love 'she read, she saw'.
Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my kitchen makeover! After all the hard work, it's so nice to hear that all the effort was worth it. It's such a nice spot to spend time in now.
have a great weekend! xo
Such a great idea! And I love the "she read, she saw" title as well. Fun way to stay connected!
Yes, She Read, She Saw is a good one. Love this photo!
Ok....this quote is going in my book now!!!! Beautiful!
Your image is amazing too and both go together so well..I will look forward to Fridays. xoxoxo
Weekend hugs. xoxo
That's a beautiful quote. It can have so many meanings...
p.s. I had a reader try making my blackberry champagne cake/cupcake with sparkling wine and gluten-free flour, and it looked like it turned out well :D
Such a great idea for the post! I think you were spot on for this post's pairing. I love the ring/sound of "she read, she saw" for the title. Hope you're off to a great start for the weekend! XX
What a wonderful idea! Wish you a wonderful weekend
I love the pairing and the idea!
Love this pairing! A beautiful photo and a beautiful quote :) Have a lovely weekend!

Hi Jeanette, Just wanted to say thanks for all your well wishes, I really appreciate it. Simone xx
cute idea! as you see, i love posting quotes as well!
I LOVE quotes - I always wanted to keep collections, sadly I'm too lazy to actually get them together.
I'm too lazy for many things.
It's my curse.
