The Cultivated Heart Feature

"Working through The Cultivated Heart workbook has shown me, over and over again, that I consider the people in my life the most important, but my actions do not match that value. Having the workbook to physically show me I need to work on cultivating my relationships and being a part of the Facebook group to keep me focused and accountable has really been helpful in making progress."

Today, I'm over at The Cultivated Heart talking a bit about business and how I use The Cultivated Heart workbook to cultivate a life filled with what matters most.

Monthly Free Printable Greeting Card: Hello Friend

I love sending out snail mail but I've found as a calligrapher, I can't send out just any card. I found myself making cards and it slowed down the process of sending snail mail which led to not sending it as often as I'd like. 

I want to make it easier for myself and for others to send their thoughts and love to others. Each month, my goal is to create a free printable greeting card. Then one day, I hope to have a library of cards I can choose from at the whim - last minute cards, anyone?

Let's spread snail mail love! Life is too short, after all, not to let that special someone know that we're thinking of them.

My Angel Baby's Story

If it was meant to be, I would have been 8 months pregnant at the end of this month.

There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of my angel baby and though the grief gets easier to handle, it never really goes away. It breaks my heart that miscarriages happen all the time. I still can't wrap my mind around that fact alone. That there's women in our lives who've experienced it and we don't even know.

I may never be 100% ready to share about my miscarriage but if I can be there for another woman feeling alone in this heartbreak, to give her a virtual hug and share a good cry with her, it'll have been all worth it.
