“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy;

they are the charming gardners

who make our souls blossom.”

Marcel Proust

Today’s post is really all about gratitude.

The process of building a new website is really like building a house. You need a vision that balances function and beauty, and you need a true craftsperson to build it for you. The process might be dusty, but you rely on the artistry and excellence of your professionals to execute on the vision, and when the dust settles and your new home stands before you, you know the collaborative efforts were worth every moment.

Without Gabriela Hansen making me relax in front of the camera to capture something of my heart in photographs and Aileen Fretz of Plume Calligraphy bringing her beautifully clean and feminine aesthetic to the architecting of my site, this “new house” would not be standing today. I’m so grateful to both of you!


I’m also very grateful to share that I’ve been invited by Linda of Calling It Home to be one of 20 featured designers for the Spring 2016 Edition of the One Room Challenge! I can’t spill the beans quite yet on what room I’m doing or who the other designers are that will be participating, but let’s just say you are going to want to follow along for this one, my friends, as there is some huge talent on the roster. I’m delighted and honoured to be on the list.

Today’s post is a short and sweet one as I prepare for the mad dash of a design dare ahead of me over the next 6 weeks, and I can’t wait to have you here with me to share in the fun every Wednesday as I share my updates! Wishing you a day filled with meaningful connections and inspiration!
