National Coffee Week

Celebrate National Coffee Week

Your day begins when the alarm goes off.  Are you the type of person who jumps energetically from bed and can’t wait to start the day or are you like the other half of the population that can’t believe it’s time to wake up already?  As you’re deciding if you want to get up or not, you weigh the pros and cons in your head of how many times you can actually hit the snooze button.  You decide to sit up in bed, but your eyes are struggling to open.  You’ve got the dog licking your face and the kids are bouncing on your bed, but when that sweet, blissful aroma from the coffee maker finally wafts in from downstairs, you begin to perk up.  Now you’re ready to get moving and tackle the day.  Such is the power of coffee!

Calling All Superheroes for National Comic Book Day

Are you wondering why there is an “unofficial” National Comic Book Day today on 9/25/15?  At one time, a long, long time ago, before there were smartphones or smart computers, you could pop into a convenience store and find the latest comic book on the shelves.  Reading a comic book was a fun way to pass a couple of hours (if you were a really slow reader :)) and it didn’t cost you more than a couple of quarters.  As time has moved on, comic books lost their popularity with the masses, but there are still some big fans.  Comic book conventions and stores that specialize in selling comics serve the passionate few.

International Day of Peace

We all understand the value of living in a peaceful world.  It’s probably safe to assume we would all like that to happen, but if it takes an official day of observance to remind us of the importance of being at peace with one another, then we’re all for it.

So often nurturing peace and harmony begins at home.  We’ve all been there… we start off our day on the right foot, and then get distracted.  Take for instance, you’re in your car sipping your coffee, stuck in traffic (again), and listening to your favorite radio station and you see the driver next to you cut you off.  While you’d normally consider yourself a calm, intelligent and rational person, you find yourself having an out of body experience and become an entirely different person.

Gifts From the Heart

Inspiring Gifts From the Heart ♥

Do you have times when you’re stuck and can’t think of what to buy for your friend, your mom, or an office colleague (hint, hint)?  While being motivated will help you get your gift ordered, it’s another thing to find the right gift if you’re not inspired.   A little bit of inspiration can lead you towards a gift that looks right and feels right.  It’s the type of gift that when you look at it, you say, “that’s the one!”

Popular inspirational gifts tend to focus on a positive quote or sentiment, like the lighted home family blessing fragrance warmer.  The small quotes on this glass base would make a wonderful housewarming gift, and it would also be a great gift for a new family.
