Wishing everyone a happy holiday with family and friends! My brother and his family will be coming tonight to spend a few days here, and I’m looking forward to seeing them, especially because they’ve not had time to visit since Easter.
The shopping cart has been up for a few weeks now, and we are staying caught up with orders (knock on wood!). I’m nearly done with the new forest scent and still hope to release it in the next few weeks.
I’d like to share links to two recent posts on the power and role of art in difficult times: Victoria wrote a beautiful post Uplifting Power of Beauty on Bois de Jasmin, and Saskia wrote a heartfelt post Perfumery in Uncertain Times on the IAO’s blog for their awards program. Both posts eloquently explore a topic that has been on all our minds lately. There have been difficult times in my life when the beauty of nature, fragrant art, and literature have helped to keep me going, and yet I know that others have endured even more trying times during which the small beauties of life become very precious indeed.
I’m thankful for all the good things in my life, including all of you. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate in one way or another!
