Butterflies symbolizing celebration, memories, renewal

News was that the Monarch butterflies were to begin their fall migration late August. Butterflies are beautiful and graceful. 

The butterfly is often a potent symbol of the spirit or soul, of renewal and transformation. It's particularly meaningful to those going through loss, dealing with illness or major life changes.

Sometimes what we need is light against the darkness. Something so simple and pretty is the Chloe Lighting Tiffany-Style Butterfly Light.

Some say that when a butterfly or dragonfly lands on you it means good luck and wearing something featuring a butterfly can be comforting and empowering. 

The butterfly may offer hope and encouragement as we work forward past setbacks. Wonderful butterfly-themed items are not difficult to find.
