Twenty-Nine Days




A friend of mine emailed me last week and said that she was just finishing the book 29 Gifts by Cami Walker and thought I would love it. I watched the above video that she enclosed in her email, and decided to post it right away, because it is so inspirational- especially for those who are going through a challenging time right now.

A surefire way to step outside our heads and unhappiness is to do something for others.

Recently I was the lucky recipient of a gift myself that I won on my favorite Norwegian blog called A Butterfly In My Hair.  I received this gorgeous wool/cashmere hat made by contributor Nicole Dupuis of Gris Handknits. I was tickled pink.

Her knitwear is divine.

Thank you so much Nicole.

  3. Cute hat! Along with the spirit of that book, the members of my family try to consciously do or say something nice at least once every day. -very easy to do, and it makes you more aware of your actions.

  4. I love receiving your posts to my email now! This is beautiful and so true, Lou. Whenever I begin to feel the "poor me" attitude I know I need to go to work and give to others! At the end of the day, I always feel so much better & so much more grateful for all that I am given in this life. And since I already have so much of your lovely work, I won't be greedy and enter your giveaway...I'm happy to share with others ;) Love you girl, and thank you for always giving and loving me...xoxoxo
