(I took this shot on a recent trip to the Napa Valley. We were at Bistro Jeanty in Yountville~very French. Oui oui, wear the beret!)
Jeri's thoughts on my questions as to what inspires~
*What inspires you? All things beautiful!!! It’s up to me to find beauty in all things. To get there "I" try to be Inquisitive, Intuitive, Imaginative, Introspective, Inventive, Interpretive; then Intermingle and Interweave it all. I add a goodly amount of humor and I have found what inspires.
*When did you get your BIG idea? When I realized I could take any idea(design, travel, garden, story etc.), take off with it and make it my own.
*How do you keep your inspiration going? By being grateful. Being open to the potential of the moment; be observant.
*Favorite tips (style or otherwise) Keep it simple. Focus, determine priorities, busy girl, and go for it! (see why I love her?)
I googled my mom recently (looking for her zip code), and to my surprise I found her on you tube discussing her recent mission trip to Zambia! She traveled with my nephew, Jordan, to build schools and chuches.
