Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.—Proust

I’m outside under an umbrella sipping an iced matcha tea during a quick break between clients. There’s a spring in the steps of passersby as DC’s weather transitions to warmer temps.

Tomorrow morning I hop on a plane for a 5:55am flight bound for North Carolina. I’m taking a two-day workshop on Leading Others In Writing for Health at Duke. Never fear, I’ll be sure to share my takeaways and am delighted to learn more about bibliotherapy.

This afternoon I feel an immense amount of gratitude to do this work—therapy, teaching, writing, designing—and I couldn’t do it without YOU.

Over the past 14 years of blogging (gasp!), you’ve been my constant companion. Although I never really know who’s reading, I feel a deep connection to those who consume my words about struggles, lessons, wins, and everything in between.

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for being part of Tranquility du Jour. If there is anything I can do, offer, or create to serve you better, please let me know. You are truly one of my charming gardeners. Bisous. x
