The past week on the blog has brought some fascinating conversation, and I would invite you to see what the chatter is all about in readers’ top blog post of the week. The comments shared are insightful, honest and inspiring, which is one more of the many reasons I am so thankful for you, my readers. I continually learn and am inspired by you, and I can’t thank you enough for your time and decision to stop by the blog.
Before wrapping up today, I wanted to share a few articles I discovered around the web as well as a quote on this day of romance.
May your day be full of love, and may it begin with the love you give yourself in acceptance of the amazing person that you are. Until this coming weekend’s Petit Plaisir is shared, bonjour.
