Freedom Tower

Thanks to all of the brave men and women and canines who have dedicated and for many given their lives to stand up for this great country.  The Freedom Tower stands tall in a space that will always be sacred and meaningful in ways that words cannot convey. It is now the tallest building in NYC.  We might all take a moment and reflect on what we can do when are driven. Our hearts beat as one.

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring has arrived!  Everywhere we see the signs of renewal, rebirth and regrowth and here in Brooklyn, our gorgeous flowering trees are blooming -- magnolia, silver lindens, forsythias and of course, the wonderful Cherry Blossoms, which are so popular here The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens has a Cherry Blossom Status Watch Map where you can time your visit to see the peak blooms of the species of your choice.  Yes, cherry blossoms are very serious business in this town!

Which means it's a perfect time to wear our Enjoying Life's Blossom's necklace adding a little cherry blossom bling to your spring wardrobe.  This piece is a big favorite around the office -- it seems to look great on everyone, especially with a crystal.

Under the 'something new' category, we are now on Pintrest where you can find us posting our favorite things, as well as new designs and reviews, such as this glowing one from Flower Hazard which says:"This would make a wonderful gift for a graduating student, birthday, or Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts! They have a design for every interest and personality!"  If you've purchased one of these as a gift, please let us know about it.  We've heard so many inspirational stories about Fortune Keepers given as special gifts and would love to hear more.

Now to get to spring cleaning, unfortunately, but I already have my favorite inspirational saying ready and waiting to go into my Blossom necklace to keep my energy up ...

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
