"A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues." ~ Cicero

I am overwhelmed at the moment as I think about all the amazing blogs, writers, and artists I met this week. The ones that I cling to are the ones that inspire passion, growth, authenticity and hope. These people remind me that there is soooo much to be grateful for everyday.

So, in celebration of discovery, and as I wander around the web, I am compelled to say "thank you". Thank you for getting up everyday and writing something, sharing something, making something. You inspire me:

Gypsy Forest with her openness and generosity. Her Advent post inspired and reminded me that it is never too late to begin a new family tradition, no matter what your background or beliefs. Oh and did I mention she is also talented! Thanks Stephinie, it is truly nice to meet you.

Zen and Coffee is an Etsy store that I discovered a couple weeks ago. Wren makes fingerless gloves, hand and arm warmers--and not the bulky, chunky kind. I am talking sexy, fun, cute, stylish fingerless gloves. You have to check it out. Why would I need fingerless gloves you ask? Especially in Florida? Yes, especially in FL. The sun can be brutal here, all year around, and when do I get the most exposure? In the car. Driving. Okay, this wasn't my idea. My mother has shared with me that the majority of women in Japan drive with fingerless gloves, for sun protection, and for all its fabulous style. I love it. Thanks Wren!!


  1. I love those mitts - so cute! and the cookies look delicious!

  2. The mitts are very cute, the cookies are inspiring me to do the same and I am going to check out the other blogs you posted. YAY!
    (and thank you so much for mentioning mine the other day. And for your email -which made my day today-. And YOUR blog which is so rich and beautiful.)
