Wandering around in the woods or strolling through an open meadow has always brought me joy. Solitude in nature is a balm for my soul.
On Saturday, we had a picnic in the convertible in one of my favorite parts of the city, on the grounds of the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center. The well-maintained grounds include acres of wooded areas, a pond, and rolling hills.
My look for the warm sunny day included smooth waistband ankle pants in camel here. My shirt is from last year. Here is a similar one.
Similar sunglasses are here. The necklace is here. The other jewelry is years old, so I’ll share similar items. Ring – Earrings – Link Bracelet – Bangles here and here
My bag has sold out now, here is a similar size and style of summer bag. The shoes are here.
One of my earliest childhood memories includes standing at the base of this massive tree and peering into the fairy houses looking for tiny winged creatures.

Today is Memorial Day. It is a federal holiday set aside to honor the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
