Obviously we’re inspired almost on a daily basis. Well at least I am. A grocery store is a huge inspiration to me. I think of all the things I inspire to cook or bake. And J Crew, oh how I love me some J Crew. To find amazing clothes inspires me to be creative in my photography. Inspiration just oozes out of me. But have you ever met someone and everything that person seems to do, inspires you?
I met an amazing person(now friend) who seriously inspires me every time I’m with her. I invited her over for dinner one night and being the kind person that she is, she brought dessert. Oh, how I lurve dessert. But she simply just said, “I just whipped up a cheesecake for dessert.” HELLO! Who just whips up a homemade cheesecake? She even had peanut butter and chocolate swirls on it. So, she inspired me to be creative when baking.
Aside from her wonderful baking skills. She personally hand makes cards. Like any card. And they are better than any Hallmark card you will ever see. Like seriously, she’s amazing. Needless to say, I’m hoping her card making skills will eventually rub off on me.
One day we stopped off at the grocery store together. She opened the trunk of her car and there it was. It’s like it sang – Ahhhhhh. It was a medium size plastic tote. And inside that tote were tons of envelopes. Each labeled specifically. And in each envelope there were COUPONS! Rachel is so fabulous that she probably had them in alphabetical order. So now I’m thinking not only is she a fabulous cheesecake baker and card maker – girl is saving herself some money. Which in turn, inspired me to use coupons. Why haven’t I been thinking of this before?
Because you see, if I save money grocery shopping it only means I have more money to spend at J Crew. Shhh, don’t tell my husband.
Last week Rachel stopped by. She handed me a cute little onesie with ribbon around it. She said, “I made some tie-dye onesies and I made one for Arianna.” She’s now even more fabulous. I think if you looked in the dictionary, her picture would be right next to the definition of Fabulous. Seriously.
Happy Tuesday, Y’all!
