Bees! Bees! Bees! I've talked about it before and you can see them all over this blog. Pictures. Quotes. I know I’ve written some about why, but I thought I’d touch on it again. Mostly because I thought it would be fun to share my pictures of bees. These beautiful creatures live a life of… Continue reading I Love Bees!
It's no secret, I love bees! I love bees and flowers, sunflowers most particularly. If you've been reading my blog from the get-go you'll know it's because bees and flowers serve as a reminder that we need to "Be like the Bee", rather then the fly. I've posted on several occasions attesting to this. I've… Continue reading Bees
Happy Friday my friends! This week as I launched my new Instagram account, @kindlerofjoy, which I started way back in March but was too anxious to go "public", I was reminded about my true goal of this adventure. This entire adventure is completely and utterly outside of my comfort zone. Putting myself out there like… Continue reading @kindlerofjoy

He continues to talk about learning stillness in the next chapter of… Continue reading Treasure Hunt Anyone?

They happen to be a very local company (which I did not know until after I ordered) and they are a very small family owned business. I love to support family owned businesses that sell product… Continue reading Bee Wax Seal Stamp

There's something about that person's breath and hands on the letter. ~Diane Lane Diane Lane makes a great point. I am bound and determined to embrace the "rebelliousness" of letter writing. I love sending lovely notes through… Continue reading Letter Sealing
