What is it about paper that is so calming?
Maybe because it's a representation of a clean slate. Or maybe it’s the pen to the paper that brings the excitement and anticipation of good things and ideas to come.
I could spend HOURS looking at cards, stationary and stationary accessories. There is just something about it ALL that excites me.
So, I was s
So, I was super excited that this came in the mail today:
And yesterday a package from the Paper-source.com arrived. This package was special because it contained pieces of an invitation for a very important chica’s baby shower.
Some of my closest friends are due in November. I am lucky enough to not only help in planning the shower, but to make the invites. So I have been putting any negative “funk” energy into assembling these with love.
Here's a sneak peak:

Also, this is my necklace of the month:
I often pull a Carrie Bradshaw and wear the life out of an accessory.
I bought it when Mark and I first started dating and the novelty of a yachtie lifestyle hadn't worn off yet. (I think I actually bought it while looking for a gift for the aforementioned friend's birthday ... oopsie!). I haven't worn it in a long time, but I found it the other day and retired whatever else was around my neck.
Anyway, a patient commented on it today in clinic. The patient was older, and Cuban, and I guess from far away (well, massage table to chair) it looks like a "cruz." I explained that it was an anchor, but I did picked it because it does sort of looked like a cross, and in Christian tradition, "faith" and "hope" are symbolized with a cross and an anchor.
Duh!!! What I needed most in the past week I was wearing around my neck! While I am plenty loved (too much for my own good, I'm sure), faith, and especially hope, are often forgotten.
Let's just say this necklace might stay on a bit longer.
