A moment to breathe and reflect

This is always the time of year when I like to stop and really look back at what the year has given me in terms
of gifts, lessons and challenges too. Mostly there have been gifts- the success of my business has been truly magical- and of course with that growth has come many lessons and more challenges than I would have liked, but together they have made up one of the most amazing years of my life. I am truly grateful.
Finding this tree in Santa Barbara recently was one of my favorite things this year- now these are roots!

New website will be up in a few weeks!

Our new website has been a long time coming and I have the most amazing people helping me to get it launched! Barbara Stepka is a great photographer, copywriter and all around dependable person- thanks Barbara, the site will be awesome because of you! I am designing a Mezuzah holder- right in line with my house blessing line. Jewish folks have a strong tradition of blessings in their homes and so when I was presented with the inspiration and ideas from The Retail Director at the National Jewish History Museum In Philadelphia I decided to go for it- they will be on the new website.
