     In a world filled with wonder and inexplicable beauty, there are moments that seem to transcend the ordinary and tiptoe into the realm of enchantment. Lately, my life has been adorned with such moments, as if I'm caught in a dance with the universe itself. Everywhere I go, butterflies appear as if they were destined to cross my path.

    It all began with at the OC fair, the butterfly exhibit. I found myself immersed in a whirlwind of fluttering wings. Butterflies seemed drawn to me, their presence turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. As they gently landed on me, I couldn't help but wonder – what is the universe trying to tell me?

     Next up I went to Nevada City and I was on a River relaxing, a serene spot far from the hustle of everyday life. As I stood there, taking in the tranquility of the water, a butterfly gracefully flew through my fingers. Its delicate wings brushed against my skin, leaving behind a sense of awe and a touch of magic.

    Some might say it's mere coincidence, a product of timing and chance. But I've come to believe that these enchanting encounters hold a deeper meaning. In cultures across the world, butterflies are often associated with transformation, growth, and even fertility. Could these delicate creatures be messengers of change and new beginnings?

     The journey continued as I ventured into Glendora, California, my curiosity leading me to uncover hidden gems. As I sought out the bank featured in the last PeeWee movie, fate had a different plan. What I stumbled upon was a breathtaking mural of freshly painted butterflies – a stunning tapestry of colors that seemed almost too perfect to be real.

     Standing amidst this painted paradise, I couldn't help but feel a connection to the universe's intricate design. The vibrant hues of the butterflies mirrored the vibrancy of life itself, and in that moment, I realized that life's beauty often lies in the unexpected, the unplanned, and the uncharted.

    My Sister Jane dress, adorned with its own enchanting patterns, seemed to harmonize effortlessly with the butterflies. And as if destined, the heels and bag I wore were designed by me in collaboration with Butrich, a touch of personal creativity that added to the day's magic.

      As I reflect on these encounters with butterflies, I'm reminded that life is a canvas waiting to be painted with the colors of the extraordinary. Perhaps the universe is reminding me to embrace change, to step into new phases of life with grace, and to believe in the wonder of the unknown.

       In a world that often races past us, these moments – when butterflies grace our path and hidden murals paint our days – serve as gentle reminders of the beauty that surrounds us. They whisper stories of transformation, hope, and the magic that lies just beyond our awareness.

      So, as I continue on this journey, I'll keep my heart open to the whispers of the universe and the enchantment that dances in the delicate wings of butterflies. After all, life's most beautiful moments often come unannounced, leaving us awestruck and grateful for the symphony of magic that weaves its way into our lives.
