envy

Little Specimen

I'm not a butterfly girl per say. I'm not a heart girl either. You can keep your sweet little hearts thank you very much. I won't be needing them on my clothing or anywhere in my house.

But lately, well lately, I've been a little fascinated (is that the right word?) by these winged creatures. They keep popping up in everything I create. I think it might boil down to envy.

Just watch a butterfly as it flits about your garden. They are so carefree, light and graceful.

For a girl with her feet firmly on the ground (surrounded by laundry) it seems impossible to ever be so blithe.

Butterfly Necklace

So I will continue to create my little butterflies and maybe if I work hard enough and long enough, someday I will be an old grandma on a porch and when a butterfly flutters by I will be able to say that I am as carefree as he.

envy...for sure. every time i read your blog i wish you were in my ward...or even better...that you lived next door to me...or even best yet...that you were really related to me (sister in law, cousin, aunt, but a real sister would be best...)

i envy all the people are blessed to have you in their REAL non-blogging existence.

and pretty necklace too...

So beautiful. And I've heard more than once, that butterflies are the souls of those we've lost, visiting.

I was in kindergarten watching the kids color butterflies the other day and I was wishing I could color butterflies.
Maybe I should wish that I had a life....
