Change The Lights


Cozy Things for Home by Ngoc Minh Ngo Interior Design Photography

"The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character." ~George Eliot (1819-1880)

Time to take a short break. I'll be back refreshed with new changes in a couple of weeks or so. Have a good day and see y'all later!
