I am in the midst of change. I am unsure if it has more to do with wanting to rid myself of 'stuff' OR finding 'simpler' stuff. Do collectibles go out the door so homemade cookies and old fashioned aprons may enter?

I am becoming more devoted to a slower paced life. I am yearning to appreciate the small steps that I take daily - whether if that means sending a card or letter to a friend, making a delicious home cooked meal, grooming one of my dogs or singing a silly duet with my parrot. It is the small steps that have a tendancy to get run over during the daily business called life.

If we give gratitude and thanks - we don't crash & burn. It is that simple.

Today, I found THE BEST hand lotion ever. Yes - I am grateful for this discovery! This lotion is wonderful. It is brillant. It is from France and it makes my hands as soft as a baby's bum!! I love the fact that is contains lavender ... my flowery alter ego!! I had never ventured into (OK - I admit it - I have never even heard of)
L'Occitane before ... but, WOW - they have a new favorite customer! Yes - it is that simple!

Don't you just love the plain tube-look?
Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! Comments, please!

They have fab soaps too. Love that lotion. Loving your thought processes! I think Spring must have gotten in your head. :-)

Sing to Kiwi for me: "Ki-wi, Ki-wi, give me an answer, do... I'm half crazy, all for the love of you... You're such a noisy parrot, you don't deserve a carrot... tho' you're bright green, biting is so mean, don't be such a little poo!"

Stasia's right - they have the most wonderful hard milled French soaps! L'Occitane is one of my indulgences, for which I don't feel too guilty since I'm not into expensive cosmetics or perfumes. Their shea butter creams / lotions can soften even the driest winter ravaged skin. It's wonderful!

I’m in the process of doing some massive ring maintenance for the FiberArts Bloggers ring and I am contacting you because you're missing your ring code. I will go ahead and e-mail you the basic ring code now, but if you don’t get it please let me know. Please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns. Once you have your code up, if you want to send me a note I’d appreciate it, so I can get you back into the ring that much faster. Thanks!

A simpler life is what my husband and I have been working towards for the last couple of years. Less stuff, less stash, less to distract us from our lifestyle which is to live simply. Finding this balance has been a wonderful journey that we continue to share. Whether singing to your parrot or just singing to yourself...enjoy it all! With a heart filled with hugs,
