Delightful Details

Here are some of the delightful details that beautify my world day to day.  Do you pay attention to detail? Open your eyes and calm your mind.  


“…I’d rather help than watch. I’d rather have a heart than a mind. I’d rather expose too much than too little. I’d rather say hello to strangers than be afraid of them. I would rather know all this about myself than have more money than I need. I’d rather have something to love than a way to impress you”.


Loved the book.  It’s a must read.  It’s not sappy, not filled with lecture.  It’s a holistic writing of intrigue, empowerment, and subtle guidance.

Hi Rachael!
That's lovely you're living in Perú! I miss my country so much, I'm living in the States now, but I was recently in Perú for vacation visiting my family. I've lived in Peru all my life, but I moved to US about 5 years ago. I'm glad you're enjoying your time there!
I already entered to your lovely giveaway! I love peruvian handmade earrings, I was looking for a pair like the ones on your giveaway and couldn't find them, that's why I'm so glad you're giving those away, I hope to have luck.
Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog :)
Hope you have a great day!!

Hey Rachael :)

Nice quote from the book. I think I pay BEYOND CLOSE DETAIL on most things, I'm always looking for a story that everyone else either hasn't, or feel they can't for whatever reason. These photos are nice, I'm wondering what's going on behind the scenes in each of them.

Have a groovy day :)
