Hello my friends,
Since it’s inception, my goal for this blog has been for it to be a little escape from all the crazy, hustle and bustle, hurly burly world that we live in…for you and for me. A place for creatives to find a little encouragement and a few good ideas.
A place for me to pour out all the ideas that pop in to my mind at all hours of the day; which thrills Terry because now I’m not sitting at the side of the bed the minute he wakes up full of ideas that I need to share with him…I share them with you instead!
I want this blog and its emails to you to be a bright spot in your day…which is all the more important to me in light of the sadness I feel in my country right now. I am not going to dwell, but my heart is heavy.
I keep this quote forefront in my mind:
“Our job on earth isn’t to criticize, reject, or judge. Our purpose is to offer a helping hand, compassion, and mercy. We are to do unto others as we hope they would do unto us.” Dana Arcuri
That being said, I wish for a you a happy Monday…and Tuesday…and Wednesday…and Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday…until we meet again next week.
I am always on the lookout for easy appetizers….
We have an unusually and delightfully and WET summer…it’s got me thinking Fall already. How about some fall decorating inspiration to get your creative juices flowing?
Are you ready for Fig season?
This past week I shared with you a recipe for Shrimp and Grits from our local Bistro at Topsail restaurant. The restaurant was named one of the 100 most scenic restaurants in America by Open Table. Want to see what restaurants in your state made the list??
I love a good story; this brief biography of Lilly Pulitzer makes me want to read more.
I don’t know about you, but I will take any quotes to help quiet my mind.
Thanks for stopping by today my friends.
