The Weekly Smile


My friend Trent have a Weekly Smile post every week, where he share positive experiences from the past week, and encourage others to do the same. Get the good energy flowing! There’s so many things to be grateful for, small and big things. I’m going to try to post a Weekly Smile in the beginning of every week. This is my third entry.


Cherry Tomatoes


My biggest smile every week goes to my daughter, she always makes my days brighter with her presence. As a very good second this week, is how wonderful my garden is doing, considering that it is the first time I have a garden in the Mojave Desert. (Learning by doing…)


Tiny, but very healthy fig tree.

My cherry tomato plants have tiny tomatoes on them, and my fig cuttings are growing lots of new leaves. I have a very tiny garden this year. I don’t want to invest my soul in someone else place, that I’m not going to stay at forever. However, I’m very grateful, and happy that my tiny garden is doing great!



The two beautiful pomegranate trees that already beautified the backyard when I came, is a nice bonus. Share some smiles! What makes you smile this week?

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

    1. Thank you Trent! I will! I’m already planning in my head what I’m going to grow. I’m going to be limited waterwise, so I’ll have to plan ahead, and learn more about gardening with less water. In a way its good that I have time to learn before I do it full time.
