Good afternoon friends. I’m late to posting today because I am sad. This past week has brought heartbreaking news. The world mourns the loss of both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. It seems wrong to not acknowlege the brilliant lives of these two beautifully creative minds. My heart aches for their families and their friends, and for the two souls that were in so much pain they decided to end it all. Friends, please. Tell your loved ones you love them. Offer a stranger a smile or a kind word. Give someone a hug, and linger for just a little bit longer. And never ever forget that your are precious, valued, loved, cared for, and needed. Sending you all my love today.
