Positive Quotes from Pinterest

Dear friends,

The year is almost gone! I want to share some of the many positive quotes I collect via Pinterest. I still have so much to learn, improve, and delete from my life like -fear-. Although is good to know our flaws, we must realize all the good things in each of us and be grateful for our daily blessings! I wish you all the very best today and in the New Year! Happy 2015! Sands

Miracle Mile 2014

“A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams.” Herb Caen

I have been very privileged to be living in one of the most beautiful cities in Miami Dade County: Coral Gables. Miracle Mile is part of the Downtown or business distric. It was designed by George Merrick who envisioned an area of shops, restaurants and financial institutions to be close by walking distance and/or easily accessed by using the Trolley service. I went for a walk on December 25th. The city gets beautifully decorated for the Holidays. I discovered a Spanish restaurant (not the one of the images – Randazzos is actually Italian), and was able to enjoy a quiet walk since just a few businesses were open.

The art of glass

Fairchild Botanical Garden just started exhibiting the amazing work of American artist Dale Chihuly. His glass sculptures/installations are so beautiful and refreshing for the soul. The garden is breathtaking and the perfect setting for these pieces. Besides the exotic flora some birds can be spotted as well as other animals if you are lucky. I will share other images in a new post later this week.

“I never met a color I didn’t like” Dale Chihuly
