Happy Monday, dear Posse folks!! Hope all of you are doing well, and that those of you who celebrate it, will have a wonderful Thanksgiving week and holiday. I know it might sound a little trite at this time of year, but I’ve been having a challenging few months, and it’s comforted me lately to take a deep breath and be thankful, counting my blessings, so to speak.
So many things to be grateful for: my faith, my family, good friends, health, and sunshine (after days and days of rain), and having the basic comforts of life (including perfume). And of course, all you wonderful Posse folks! Perfume people, I’ve come to realize over the years, are among the kindest, most generous and thoughtful folks around. And through the Posse and various other fragrant avenues, we’ve formed friendships, often without ever having met in person. Maybe one of these years we can have another Posse meet-up, so we can celebrate our readers and perfume pals face to face.
Anyhoo, what are you most thankful for right now?
P.S. In recent months, we’ve been on an intense cleaning jag at our house. Quite a bit of stuff piled up and clutter accumulated while we were both working intense, 40-hour-plus weeks with long commutes. But now things have changed; my DH is at home and I’m working less than full-time. And in less than a year, we will have an empty nest. So next up: our formal dining room. This space has been a repository of sorts for much of my perfume stash for quite some time. As you can imagine, I’m loathe to tackle this project, but it’s got to be done. And in a way, it’ll be a blessing, helping me to be thankful for my favorite scents, as I whittle the collection down to my must-haves. So in the future, I envision myself sharing lots of fragrance love.
