I bought myself a gift. Did you?
What I bought wasn't at all what I thought I would get. I thought it would be a pair of earrings or a sweater, but instead I purchased a storage bin with handles.
Once I saw it I knew it was the perfect size to transform into a portable filing system.
I don't like sitting at a desk, instead I like to be mobile. Recently, I've adopted the kitchen table. This portable bin allows me to have what I need wherever I decide to work and to easily put everything away, and that's important!
While I was at it, I bought some decorative file folders. They were pretty and made me smile, and that was my objective.
Have you bought your gift yet? What did you get?
If you haven't it's not too late, go for it. Give yourself a little love.
I'd love to hear if you did gift yourself and what it was. I want to celebrate with you!
If not why not?

The first thing I want to do when I'm traveling is to look for where food and home goods are sold. The everyday products people buy fascinate me. They're as important as the local history. Plus, I love food and home goods!
Years ago I spent hours in a gigantic grocery store in Provence, France. I was with. . .
Walking down the street in NYC, I notice a woman putting red lipstick on while looking at her reflection in her handheld mirror. She’s homeless, living out of the bags that encircle her. Oblivious to her surroundings, she holds the lipstick in her hand and, with determination, she starts moving it around and around her lips, causing the definition to disappear. After pausing to carefully check her image in her mirror, she continues applying the red color.
The motion feels eerily familiar. . . .
