It’s rare to come across something that you’ve never seen before or experienced anything like it. The Buddha Board Enso definitely caught my eye!
Imagine drawing, painting and writing on a board with a water brush and creating images with a rich, inky Japanese look. As the water slowly evaporates, your art will magically disappear allowing you to create a whole new masterpiece.
My BFF, Linda, and I met in 1976 and are complete opposites. She is quiet. I’m loud. She loves to read. I love to dance. She enjoys museums. I enjoy snow skiing. Get the picture?
I had two problems. I wanted to be able to digitize my notes, and I wanted to stop killing trees. I needed a solution.
I’m a person who takes a lot of handwritten notes. I prefer to hand write things because my brain is able to retain the information better. Anyone else like me in that way?
I was speaking at a conference out of state when another speaker shared the perfect solution–The Rocketbook.
Smart, Reusable Notebook
The Rocketbook is a spiral notebook with reusable pages that can be completely erased with a few swipes of a damp cloth. It’s like magic!
It’s also a smart notebook because with the Rocketbook app, you can take a photo (scanning it) of your notes and immediately send it to a specified online folder located on your Google Drive, iCloud, Dropbox, etc. Or you can email it to yourself.
If you send it to Evernote, it makes your notes searchable!
There’s nothing like going to visit Mimi and Papi!
When I tell my kids I’m taking them to their grandparents house, they whoop and jump around as if I’ve just told them I’m taking them to Disney World.
Grandchildren have a special bond with grandparents that is unique from the parent/child relationship.
My two young boys are lucky to be growing up with their Mimi and Papi living only two miles away. Since the day each of my sons were born, their grandparents have been a huge part of their lives.
They are there for the big moments–holidays, birthday parties, and soccer games. As well as the small moments–learning a new game, trying a new food, or kissing a boo boo to make it feel better.
I know one day my sons will look back on their childhood and realize how much their grandparents influenced the men they became.
Capturing Precious Memories of Grandparents With Grandchildren
As uncomfortable as it is to say… grandparents won’t be around forever. Before time slips away from us, I wanted to capture this moment in their lives so my husband and I gave his parents the gift of a Grandparents & Grandchildren Photo Session.
Mimi, Papi, and my two sons had a photo shoot just for them!
Look at these precious moments so artfully captured! We will treasure these keepsakes forever.
I found out recently there IS a difference between the two besides the spelling. A macaroon is coconut based.
For this gift idea, I’m referring to macarons, which are meringue based and come in a wide range of colors and flavors.
There are SO many colors and flavors to choose from which makes it fun to give someone a variety!
If you’ve never had a macaron, it’s a delicate cookie with two thin crusts and a filling made of either ganache, buttercream or fruit jam.
It’s also full of contrasts. A macaron packs huge flavor into a tiny baked goodie, and it’s somehow both rich and light at the same time.
They come in delicious flavors such as mint chocolate, cookies and cream, mojito, honey lavender, lemon tart, and piña colada. Is your mouth watering yet? Because I’m just scratching the surface on the different types of macaron flavors out there.
When I say my husband loves to fish, I mean he LOVES to catch fish.
Over the years he has collected many fishing rods but there’s a problem.
He has so many that he can no longer store them in the corners of the garage. Sometimes it’s a mess because they get tangled up with the hooks.
Randy had purchased other wall racks only to find they were poorly designed. He continued his search and found an innovative fishing rod storage rack, the Cobra Racks, that fits on the back of the garage door.
This quote from the book says it so well… “Success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right.”
I’ve always been a big to-do list person, but this book made me realize the dark side of to-do lists. Since to-do lists aren’t prioritized by what’s important or what matters, we end up spending our precious time on trivial tasks that don’t get us any closer to achieving our goals.
Instead, the book talks about creating a success list–a list based on creating extraordinary results. To-do lists are long, but success lists are short. Then, it challenges you to pick the ONE thing that goes at the top of your success list.
So how does a person determine what the ONE thing is? By answering this very important question…
