What a brilliant way to share your day. Just brilliant. And you look as gorgeous as ever in every photo. Blessings and prayers.

ps i didn't comment yesterday, but your leather cuff is INCREDIBLE!! what an amazing result for a (gasp) FIRST attempt?! so gorgeous. you're a wonder!

UmberDove said...

Oh you two! Thank you both for making me feel like ten million bucks.

Carrie said...

utterly beautiful I love this idea - though I am so not as pretty as you or artistic so my day may not be so lovely to share x
Best wishes xx

UmberDove said...

Carrie, there is so much that is beautiful about the everyday existence, so much I love about [slightly mundane] habits, so much that appeals to my desire to record life. All that to say, merci my friend.

Snailentina said...

A beautiful day! You make it all very lovely... even that hospital gown. I squealed out loud at the BC appearance, then with Sancho and then with your flawless head :)

CrowNology said...

...your day has made a lump of happiness and wonder rise in my throat...
you are an inspiration.

Your day is a marvel.

I get to experience two of them in three.

I know what I mean ;)

You inspire me, dearest.

Umber Dove,
What a beautiful collection of photos for many reasons! Love seeing into your beauty-filled world!

God Bless you ~
You are always in my prayers ~

Love to you!

mme. bookling said...

I just had to revisit this today...and here are my thoughts:

Regarding the coffee picture. My dear, have you become ONE OF THOSE Arcatians who actually bring IN their coffee receptacle. Oh no...;)

I printed out the picture of you and BC and it is now adorning my fridge.

Breakfast and Lunch dates will forever remind me of you two.

You started running! I hope you took her easy, but I also hope you felt fucking empowered and boss.

UmberDove said...

I may need to make this a habit ;)

BC said...

Apparently I need to make more appearances in your blog. The masses have spoken!

thewindhover said...

I don't think I could love a series of photos more than this, so true, so beautiful. And that last photo especially. You are breathtaking when you sleep - and well, always. You inspire the soul x

Kathleen said...

Love the simple honesty in this post. You and BC are too cute.
It made me smile again and again on a day that was trying. I thank you!

Kathleen xx

Runs4fun said...

Yes indeed, a beautiful post by a beautiful (and courageous) woman! My friend...the one I getting stronger every day...and grabbing the beauty of it all by the horns and riding hard! Here's to both of you (and many more)...grand examples to us all.

resolute twig said...
