So here is how it goes. I took myself out to lunch on my day off and decided to try a new place, Spokes on Southern. I had no idea they have an outdoor patio with a pond and ducks and turtles just beyond and lo and behold today it’s cloudy and cool enough that I can sit outside! ! Bonus!


And then with a creative menu to boot! Selected their three cheese grilled cheese with basil, pear and turkey, on gluten free bun. As I was pondering their limited menu and yet all the customizing options, the inspiration came for updating our ordering website with a more limited initial selection and yet a myriad of customizing options! What do you think?

Well the ducks just walked up and they are quacking their approval!



Finding Inspiration January 2, 2013

I have had a wonderful week with family in snowy West Virginia, and enjoyed re-connecting with three points of inspiration in my life. Thought I would share them with you:


1. This picture of garden roses – I was sharing pictures on my phone with my Mom, and as I came across the garden roses, I was reminded of why I do why I do: because flowers are so amazing! And I love the new varieties!


2. Trees and branches: Some people think they ate sticks, that they look dead. I love the endless shapes and forms that branches take as they grow. And seeing them in winter without leaves and with snow highlighting them is wonderful!

3. My 2-year old nephew! The warm, open heart of a child, so accepting, so curious and eager to learn is heart-changing.

So my next question to myself is: how do I get more of each in my life?

What inspires you, and what are you going to do to get more?
