Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 115
I hope you’re doing well and enjoying this beautiful spring weather in April.
How’s your spring weekend going?
Isn’t it lovely to see the flowers blooming and the trees getting all green again?
Hopefully, you’re enjoying some sunshine, taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and doing something fun or relaxing.
What are your plans for the rest of the day?
Personal Note from Janine
Hey there! It’s great to be here chatting with you on this lovely Saturday.
Can I just say I absolutely love Icelandic poppies too? There’s just something about their delicate and unique appearance that always draws me in.
It’s amazing how a small act of kindness from the flower vendor led me to discover a new love for these flowers. It’s the little things in life, right?
And it’s so cool that I was inspired to create paper poppies from my own supply of paper. There’s something special about creating something beautiful with your own hands. Plus, the fact that they last forever is a major bonus!
I don’t know about you, but I think this is the perfect day to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of these gorgeous flowers. So, whether you have the real blossoms or the paper ones, let’s take a moment to appreciate the simple things in life that bring us joy.
Cheers to a fun and inspired Saturday!
