Sending soft summer vibes to your feed today with a gorgeous garden-inspired melody called ‘The Butterfly Waltz’ by Brian Crain Composer. This beautiful piece has a simplicity and sweetness about it which makes it perfect for spring and summer weddings. It’s one of my most popular requests for bridal entrances and it suits relaxed, romantic, al fresco style ceremonies!
Today’s stunning cover slide comes courtesy of Zdenka Butler – an Austrian photographer who took this shot whilst visiting Wexford, Ireland! I’m totally in love with the vibrant colours in this image and the detail of this small tortoiseshell butterfly! Very grateful to Zdenka for kindly contributing this photo as it’s the perfect match for today’s music!
I thought I’d also feature another quote this week which we can all relate to, especially after spending so many weeks in lockdown, waiting for a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel! I think most of us have tried to focus our energies on positive tasks and projects so we can emerge feeling inspired to take on the world! But let’s be honest – there were days we didn’t feel motivated to do much more than make the bed! So this quote by Beau Christopher Taplin, a musician-turned-writer from Australia, really struck a chord with me as it is all about never losing hope.
“Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful.”
I hope this inspires you to keep going with your plans, whatever they may be, and not give up before they blossom into something wonderful! Remember this the next time you see a butterfly flutter by!
