One of the best things about blogging are the connections that you make offline. Through conferences, meet-ups, or just hanging out with one new blog friend, real people are the best part of blogging.
Recently, I've participated in the Kindness Swap and the Gift of Jewels project. The beautiful picture above is my "Gift of Jewels" from Christina. The Gift of Jewels exchange was created by Se'Lah from the blog Necessary Room. The event was a huge success with dozens of participants from all over the world.
The colorful collage below is from KT, and my second postcard as part of the Kindness Swap. Thank you both for the beautiful works of art!
There's a beautiful passage written on the other side of the postcard. Here's an excerpt.
"To vibrate, to accept, to expand ... this is the new duty.
To give oneself as one is, to let life meet us as it really is.
To live for the moment and extract from each moment all that it holds of truth, beauty, and goodness without scruple, without vain questioning...
In childlike purity of heart ... to be able to be oneself.
To dare to be happy and at last allow one's soul to spread its wings." -Jeanne de Vietinghoff
