Think gumption, charm & grace matter?
Yes, then come sit by me.
I think we just might be kindred spirits!
I like to think myself a smart woman who has gumption in spades, celebrates charm and color, welcomes adventure, and appreciates everyday beauty!
Did I describe you too?
But if like me, you have a mile long to do list
(ok more than one);
Urgent hands pulling you in a million different directions;
And often feel undermined by flawed expectations;
It can be hard to live up to that charming personality.
Am I right?
We slow down and choose with more intention.
We cultivate personal growth not perfection.
We act with gratitude in our hearts.
We speak with more civility and lavish kindness.
We celebrate that which is timeless and delightful.
I bet we could design a life we adored & that is what I call gracious living!
