Good day, LOVELIES!
My goodness, it’s October already! Last Saturday morning, I remerchandised and colorized my closet to reflect Fall.
I reopened the boot boxes and . . . was once again . . . swept away by the familiar smell and sense of leather and warm.
Welcome to my “Share The Muse!” series! On the first Monday of the month, I will feature a special person of muse. In-between, there will be short two-sip “Share the Muse – Express” reads to inspire. As always there will be the frolic and familiarities of 34th Street which you have grown accustomed to. ( Yes . . . more French bread on Friday is ahead.) I am getting my blogging groove back, and have managed to make the time to move for health sake too! I know most of you know . . . I am less than two years away from retirement. For this reason alone, I couldn’t have picked a more appropriate person for the launch.
. . . for many reasons I chose Heather.
Many of you who visit 34 also know Heather Lindstrom. For those who haven’t met Heather, you will be glad you popped onto 34 today.
Heather recently retired from a career in the field of education where she shared her “guiding spirit” with children. She counselled and guided children with a healing hope. May God bless you, Heather.
Heather’s guiding spirit and passion for her husband Scott, her family, her friends and her “wanderlist” has drawn me to “read her” for almost four years.
Her talent for guiding and marketing led me to a little boutique in the making, curated by “herself”. My first shopping experience was Christmas time three years ago. ( The past retail soul in me sensed it was to be the beginning of something bigger.)
Since retirement, Heather has turned her petite boutique into a world-class adventure. Her gift of a “guiding spirit” has now lifted her to a place where she has always dreamed to be. She spent the Summer in Italy curating, buying and bringing the world home to her growing business and her readers.
You may think that my post was planned to coincide with Heather’s giveaway . . .
(I had planned to begin “Share the Muse” on the first Monday in September. I postponed it for some mom and dad time with Jay and Camille in Boise. Be still my heart! ) It was the first time Mr D and I had flown somewhere together in over ten years.
( Are we not perfect candidates for a travel counselor?)
. . . after Camille and Jay’s wedding next Summer . . . hmmmm . . . second Honeymoon . . . or perhaps the very fact we never had a first honeymoon?
It turns out . . . my launch is SERENDIPITOUSLY timed to visit Heather. You can win as you wander. (Three days to go on her giveaway page.)
Congratulations, Heather! I wish you and your gifted guiding spirit world-class success!
Share the muse!
[I write “Share the Muse”, not for compensation, but to inspire. It’s my way of paying forward the wealth of creative energy and friendships I have found since launching 34 five years ago. Yes! It’s my blogiversary!]
