I am beaming. Really. Yesterday was a day like no other here at Positively Splendid.
Sipping my coffee in the early hours yesterday morning, I was absolutely tickled to realize I was the featured blog on Today’s Creative Blog! I am a long-time fan of Kim’s site, and I have been delighted to discover a plethora of terrific blogs through her features. Imagine how excited I was when I realized she had chosen to spotlight Positively Splendid! Wow!
Cut to the afternoon. The über talented Kari at U Create (another marvelous blog with more fabulous ideas than you can shake a stick at!) shared my Coke can napkin rings with her readers. And then, I discovered my citronella candles and tiered planter were both featured on Apartment Therapy/ReNest. Oh, the chic fabulousness that is present on each of those sister sites! I am so honored Sarah chose me to be included with such talent.
I hope y’all know how much I appreciate you. Each of you. I am having so much fun with this, because it truly fills me with joy to share the beauty that is to be found in life’s simple pleasures with my readers. In a world obsessed with immediate gratification, I hope that a stop here at Positively Splendid prompts a desire to slow down and appreciate the things in life that take time: a hearty meal; a handmade craft; a useful item made at home instead of purchased at a superstore. I sincerely hope that this is a bastion of community and support, and a place where ideas are shared and friendships are fostered. It truly has been on my heart lately to approach this venture as blogging with a purpose. Of writing and sharing with intent.
