Hello Love Journal

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.

We usually keep it casual at my house. One year, we might exchange small gifts, the next just a card. We were once in Las Vegas for Valentine’s Day – along with about a million other people (won’t be doing that again). This year, we have a houseguest arriving.

I can imagine my husband giving me a a bouquet of pretty wild flowers – or a pair of hilarious sassy socks from Blue QHe gets me.

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Maybe you have a Galentine’s Day party instead (or in addition to?)

P.S. All of our 2017 Calendars are on sale at huge discounts.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.

Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.

Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.

Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.

Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.

Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

Lavender is a classic and familiar scent in aromatherapy, soaps, and even food. In Lavender Fields, you will find relaxation, inspiration, and nature at its finest.

One of the things I love most about Brush Dance is that we truly have something for every taste. From fine art to doodles. From religious to slap-the-table funny. We are certain we have something for you, too.

Enjoy!
