Yesterday Was my Birthday!
And The Hubs surprised me with tickets to opening day at
The Sobela Ocean Aquarium at the Kansas City Zoo
(followed by dinner out with a great group of treasured friends and neighbors)
This was a jellyfish birthday for me:
As beautiful as the day and celebration was, there’s still a bit of a painful sting about it!
The Aquarium is amazing!
That perfect Goldilocks size of not being so large you get overwhelmed and a bit burned out, but large enough to give you a great sampling from Mangrove forests down to the ocean’s depth and back up to tidal pools.
But it also came with the reminder:
Stop trying to be like everyone else!
YOU and I are OKAY just as we are. We are enough, actually we are more than enough!!!
On the Blog This Week
One big post and video this week!
(and more Christmas stockings designed)
How to turn plain white napkins into custom designer (as in you) napkins perfect for your home, your event, your style.
I am crazy about these napkins:
- No cutting and sewing
- Inexpensive — less than $2 each!
- No artistic experience required
- Any color can be substituted for my blue
- Any simple motif can be substituted for my brushstroke
- And they’re washable!!!
What’s not to love?
Coming Next Week:
I’m diving head first into all the Fall feels! Next week is all about leaves with maybe a few acorns, and if time allows, dried grasses too.
