A Pink Farewell to January

looking around my home today i was struck by little pink details.
anenomes. tulips. flowered pillowcases. a heart hanging on the bedpost that plays a lullaby when you pull the string.
i was given that pink heart as a gift when I was pregnant with our angel baby.
i was supposed to hold it to my belly so our baby could hear the sweet melody.
our baby is gone, but that pink heart remains.
pink like rosy baby cheeks.
pink like the soft spotted belly and raspberry paws of a puppy.
like the blushing dawn of a new morning.
and i knew...i am ready for new beginnings.
goodbye january!
i loved the new friends i found in january.
i loved baking up batches of chocolate comfort.
i loved long hours working on photographs, learning a new art.
but you were cold, january.
i am ready now.
ready for a pink february.
so glad you are all joining me.

xoxo country girl

    {the pink heart is precious...i love that very much}
    peace & happiness to you today my sweet friend!

  2. made me cry...all of it..i read it to john, ..raspberry flowers ...the heart on your bed...

    good bye, were cold.......

    but YES ! I did meet new friends most of them from you or Christina..and it warmed my heart....

    Welcome Pink February...

    Love You,

  3. I really do enjoy your blog and all of your posts! thank you so much for offering them to the rest of us... and your wonderful buttons, too!
    This post was especially wonderful, I think perfect even. The photographs matched the words flawlessly... thanks again!


  4. such stunning pictures, love the effects.
    your words are touching. good bye January.

  5. I'm a pink girl, too. And, oh how I love February. I do want to say that I was so very sorry to hear about your baby. Those are such weak words, I know, compared to all the hurt they attempt to help comfort. Still. I am so very, very sorry.

  6. such a lovely post, even though we don't have snow and it's not even very cold where i live, i am looking forward to february and spring as well.
    i love what you are doing with your photos, the soft vintage effect is so pretty. i wish i knew photoshop. but i am a long way from that! the world of digital photography is new to me ( i like film mostly). but you have inspired me.
    happy february!

  9. Dearest Dawn ,that pink heart is a reminder that your beloved Blueberry will always watch over you and the brothers & sisters that WILL join you sometime soon. I too have had enough of January & February - the shortest month - is the herald for Spring. Thare's a wonderful quote in Shadowlands which says something like 'this great, cold, bleak Waiting Room of a World...' & that's what January feels like. Thank you for bringing the soft rosiness to come into my Sunday. Much love xoxo & thanks so much for the anniversary card again, Rachel

  10. I am one of those new friends which January brought. I'm so glad. I'm so sorry for your unimaginable loss.

  11. Goodbye January and hello to your Birthday month of February! It will be a wonderful month filled with love and happiness xoxo

  12. I'm so glad you're ready sweetie!
    Happy February!

  13. i'm glad i found you this january. welcome february.

  14. Your full name at birth was:
    Pretty PINK Dawn.

  15. Somehow...the unimaginable has happened! I have missed some posts here... better do a quick catch up. Thinking of you sweets...I discovered these missed posts as I came to pinch one of your lovely buttons... xxx

  16. Your photos lift my spirits! Now, I am beginning to think of spring! Such hope!
