Happy Friday friends! The last Friday of the month! Wasn’t it just summertime? ☀️ 😉
We are fast approaching the end of October; it’s almost November! You know what that means right?! Christmas will arrive soon! 8 weeks from yesterday! 🎄
In the uncertain times we are all in together, the season of Christmas will be unlike any other; that is certain. (understatement #1) The gathering of family and friends will be small and limited.
The whole dynamics of planning, gathering loved ones, sharing has completely changed this year! (understatement #2)
Eating dinner together, sharing a cuppa, sitting by the fire perhaps, inside or outside, (we’re diehard outdoorsy over here; warm woolies on and sit in a circle in the fresh winter air) exchanging stories and presents, laughing, crying; good crying, happy crying, ykwim (no fighting k?) sharing, joking and eating of course...will be all the more poignant, imho. What do you think? 💭 🤔
Going out for coffee, dinner, shopping together and gift-giving with friends will have a whole different “feel.” Many of us are choosing to purchase online, curbside or pick-up, from local businesses and artisans. The beauty of this is that we are supporting each other during a challenging time. (while we safely consider everyone’s health and work at keeping the virus at bay and stay safe.)
Here’s where I am sharing the biggest part of my WHY with you. ❤️
I love people, inspiring them, gathering together, listening to and sharing stories, giving, celebrating moments, creating, flowers, spreading joy and planning. The word “Inspire'' originates from the Latin inspirare which means: to infuse into, communicate to the spirit, breathe into, encourage and excite.
By combining some of the special things that fill my soul and bring me joy, I wholeheartedly endeavour to inspire and spread joy to others! I love that! My passion, purpose and power is to always encourage others to celebrate themselves, their family and friends, and cherish their special moments together. Nothing is impossible with a willing heart. ❤️
These are the best presents we can give to each other. Love, kindness and respect, to name a few.
Currently, and for most of 2020, the time for an Event Planner being employed was and is at a near standstill. 😞 I have chosen to channel my heart for people and love for sharing with quotes of encouragement and my hand-picked creations for you.
When you decide to purchase presents for your special peeps, you can support some amazing artisans, makers and small businesses. Check them out on IG and FB.
Everyone loves receiving gifts! Especially when they are uniquely created for each one of you and support a worthy cause. 100% win-win! When we support others, incredible things happen. We are more powerful when we empower and support each other.
Teaboxes created with love, especially for you, your family and friends.
Each purchase you make, will support women in Friendship Bridge; a non-profit, charitable organization that provides business microfinance, education and preventive health services to impoverished women. This enables them to build resilience, pursue opportunities and support their families. What better way to encourage, rise and lift each other up than by sharing with others. The vision in my mind when the women will receive this important gift of support, brings me immense joy. 😃 This keeps me focused on WHY. 🙏
Did you know? Giving is the Key to Happiness.
Do you love giving? Do you love receiving?
What items would you like to give and receive in a teabox?
Share your thoughts in the comments!
Wishing you a joy-filled weekend. 😃
P.S. Remember what William Hill of “This Is Us” said to Olivia: “Catch the moments of your life.”
