ordinary sparkling moments

Photobucket

during a few hours of free time in an otherwise very busy week
i knew exactly what needed to be done.

i needed to sit in the sunshine
on a pink blanket
eat gluten free banana bread
and read the gorgeous book (ordinary sparkling moments by christine mason miller) that just arrived on my doorstep.

i think i'll be ranting about the brilliance of the book for a long time.
its got so many transformative ideas whirling in my head.
pages filling up in my journal, further steps towards my creative dreams

at times i've wondered why it is that i blog and feel so drawn to this world of creative bloggers.
and lately its been so clear. these women are dreaming big and making it happen, valuing their creative endeavors, writing transformative words, challenging themselves and by living artful lives. its like checking in with mentors each day. being reminded of the authenticity i am continually walking towards.

and it makes it so much easier to believe in yourself when you witness so many women's journeys of walking strong in their own imperfect beautiful gracefulness.

So what about that gluten free banana bread? Store bought or home made?

i heart gluten-free banana bread! this one was store bought, actually cafe bought...as a couple of coffee shops here in vancouver now carry it.

but here's a link to a recipe from the gluten-free girl
