Shop Gal Guide | For The Francophile In All Of Us

A Meditation on Tradition

I used to think traditions were chains.  Something imposed on the family to keep our milestones locked in someone else's vision.     But as I have grown older (maybe wiser?) and my life changes, I have realized that traditions are not chains, but threads that tie us together with our loved ones.

Lessons from Solitude

It feels like things are getting somewhat back to normal.  I am lucky in that I did not lose any friends or family members to COVID.  So to me getting back ot normal means getting out of the house, enjoying the company of friends and family, and slowly getting back to experiencing life as I knew it before everything turned upside-down.

From the Archives | Grasshopper Summer, An Unexpected Reward

While being a small business owner can be frustrating, back-breaking work, it has given us rewards that can't be measured with the typical outward signs of success. The Grasshopper Summer is one of those rewards.

Down Time | Hobbies with the Elsie Green Team

Nurturing hobbies outside work is essential when you work in a creative field.  If we don't take time to fill up the well of inspiration, it runs dry.
