Just when you are least expecting it, the unexpected happens. Isn't it funny how life always figures out a way to give us just what we need? Brainstorming, crafting, styling, writing, editing and 100 posts later, my smile is as big as it gets.
This project of mine that truthfully started out as something much smaller, has become one of my favorite methods of therapy. You, as my readers, have listened to me and supported me even when I wasn't listening to myself. For that, I appreciate all of you, individually and as a terrific group of friends.
Every minute is an opportunity. An opportunity to do something marvelous. I've always thought that no accomplishment is too small and with that, the opportunity is never too small either. With the recent tragedies that have occurred around the world, I can't help but think of the opportunity to help in result. Whether it is spreading peace, positivity and love to all, no matter what race, religion or occupation held or even donating a few dollars to help the thousands fighting for their lives as a result of the natural disaster in Nepal,
no contribution is too little
I encourage you all that if possible, help those who need our support and love more than ever. Your words, your kindness and your prayer may save someone's life.
It's so hard sometimes to be unselfish and to not over stress about everything possible. Within those times; love when it is hardest to love. Because loving means hope. With the love that we can give, it makes things that much more extraordinary.
Foyodor Dostoyevsky once said,
"I see the sun, and if I don't see the sun, I know it's there. And there is a whole life in that, in knowing that the sun is there."
Be the sun, for yourself and for others. This land is your land and this land is my land... spread the light, because without each other, no opportunity and definitely no accomplishment can exist.
A huge and special thank you to every one of you who have so loyally walked with me on this journey. I especially want to thank my beautiful team and my amazingly talented photographers: Molly Grey (
), Julia Paige (

). I wouldn't be able to do this without them!!
All photos in this post were done by Dominique Hessert Photography and were set at Piazza Michaelangelo in Florence, Italy!
