I’m so glad it’s October

The anticipation of October’s beginning holds a great deal of nostalgia for me. It’s all excitement and anticipation. Fall sweeps in with a light breeze, there is just a hint of chill in the air and dusk brings some of the most majestic sunsets of the year. Each night the sky is lit on fire while the last warmth of summer fades into the seasons. And the oceans blue is a touch deeper and even more soulful. Truly October has magic in it.

WEST STREET GALLERY

This past Christmas my family surprised me with my long coveted Hazy Beach Art Print by Lisa Golightly. I was blown away unwrapping the large mysterious gift that morning, as you can imagine. The feeling of receiving something unexpected is both unique and exciting, but also emotional. I was taken aback and ended up getting teary. The thoughtfulness and surprise caught me off guard. I am so grateful that they took note of something I really wanted and presented me with something that I could cherish forever.

We immediately mounted the print in our dining room and since then I have been dreaming of creating a collection surrounded by our own images.
