Love Is There

Last week had has been a brutal past 72 hours. Incredibly stressful with quite literally no time to knit. Everything finally stopped this afternoon and the kids were begging to go to the park. I reluctantly loaded us all up and bribed myself with the idea of some quiet knitting time. 

After sitting down at the picnic table and shooing the kiddos off, I came across a rock from the #thekindnessrocksproject and it was exactly what I needed. The reminder of love and all the forms it takes. To love myself by embracing my humanity.  To take a breath. It will be okay.

Inspiration strikes without regard for situation or setting. I couldn't resist the siren call of my knitting muse and began a provisional cast on for a new design. All while in my car just minutes before having to walk into my day job. 

I took this picture to document the beginning of a new creation, the birth of a dream. Also to remember how things just come together when I'm living present and accounted for in my life. The delicate flowers of my dress against the cream of the provisional cast on balanced by the blue crochet hook sit so prettily in my eye. The lighting was that pretty early morning light that makes everything beautiful. Even snapshots taken in the front seat of a 4 door sedan. 

It was as if the universe was trying to remind me to simply take a breath and keep on moving. This will fall into place as they should and beauty will be found along the way.
