A Thankful Inspiration

Thanksgiving is this Thursday- which means lots of turkey, stuffing, and tasty pies. But it is also a time to reflect on what is most special in your life. It is easy to feel like life can more than difficult at times, but it is important to focus on (and be thankful for) those things that we do have.

I am thankful for my family and friends, and how supportive they are, for my job- which I really do like, for my creativeness, that I live near the ocean, that even though I can’t afford to travel full time, I can afford to take a trip here and there, and for the Pad Sea Eiw on the lunch special menu at Chai, which is a truly yummy meal…

Happy Thanksgiving from T.Rex + Me

Boost Happy

Kids are happy- who knew?! It’s sad to think that somewhere along the trail to adulthood, responsibilities turn into stress which often can turn into unhappiness.

A recent study done by National Geographic Kids concluded that out of the 613 children polled, 70% of them consider themselves to be “very happy”. Here are the top 5 reasons they stated as attributes to their happiness (maybe we could learn a thing or two)…

* Laughing

* Enjoying the moment, and living in the present

* Spending time with family

* Getting a Pet

* Being Grateful

I had a great weekend catching up with some of my best friends from college- one of them got married (Congrats Steph & Dave)!

Saturday was a messy rainstorm, but yesterday was absolutely beautiful.. I will take a day like that anyday! I even stopped in the Bryant Park Holiday Shops on my way, which is always inspiring.

Plus, the new 2nd issue of ezine Papier Mache is out today, and I am loving this photo…

I came across Cosmetics Database yesterday, and it pretty much confirmed what I already knew- it is so hard to find healthy, natural products (especially for kids). The ratings on some of these products are truly horrifying! Though I understand it is nearly impossible to get away from hazardous ingredients, I do think making wiser choices on the products you purchase is a must!

Check out Cosmetics Database here for a ranking system for all your families products.

Sorry for the short hiatus, I was in Florida surprising my grandpa for his 80th birthday- Happy Birthday Opa! It was great to be back in warm weather, especially at night when the warm breeze was blowing. It makes me think of summer nights staring at the stars… Happy Monday!
