This week was Week 45 of 52 Weeks of Tranquility. Amazing how quickly 2015 has gone. I guess we say this every year {especially as we get older}, but this one seems to have been particularly fast. I mean, how is it already holiday time?

Counting the weeks through the 52 Weeks of Tranquility offering has helped put the speed into perspective and serves as a gentle reminder to slow.

I think it may be my theme for the year ahead. Slow. Down. Take the time to savor experiences, meals, connections, and moments.

Tranquility du Jour Daybook 4.0‘s are en route. They were delivered to Tranquil Space on a big pallet, so Tim and I hauled them inside and placed them into envelopes decorated with a sticker and washi tape. It’s the little things.

Next we transported them home, inserted thoughtful reusable treats, sealed, addressed, and dropped them at the Post Office. It was a group effort. Although they shipped Tuesday, Wednesday was a holiday in the US so the first recipients had them in their mailboxes yesterday. I’ve already heard from a few of you!

Please share your receipt and unveiling by snapping a photo and posting online (#tdjdaybook) or emailing it to me. I love seeing them in their new happy homes. It’s truly my favorite edition yet.

Thank you so much for your support. We have 50 copies left and a reminder that the Daybook e-course launches November 30.
