August 13, 2015 will go down in my life history as a most memorable day… the delivery day of my “second child.” 990lbs of Reclaiming Beauty Wisdom Decks were delivered to the end of my driveway in a tractor trailer. Luckily, my friend, Kelli, arrived at the same time to celebrate the occasion. And just in time she was – with “birthday” cake and a pick-up truck – so we could transport the 56 boxes down my driveway from the road, and then delight in the celebration complete with birthday cake.
The vision of the Reclaiming Beauty Journal & Wisdom Deck began three years ago, the summer of 2012. I am feeling so satisfied here at the end of the summer 2015, celebrating bringing this vision into tangible form. A long 3 year journey, with many ups and downs through the process. If self-publishing a book and producing an accompanying wisdom deck is comparable to climbing a mountain, I am currently at the summit of a fourteener. I’m going to savor this moment, and the view, here on the top of the mountain, before the hard work of the next stage of the journey begins… taking this message out into the world.
But I don’t want to celebrate alone… In honor of the occasion, the beautiful and incredibly talented artist of the Reclaiming Beauty Wisdom Deck, Leah Joy, has illustrated the Navajo prayer that inspired this whole project inside my heart and Soul so many years ago. I will be sending this “Walk in Beauty” poster out as a FREE GIFT to all of the people on the Reclaiming Beauty mailing list in the next couple of weeks. Make sure to add your name to the mailing list to receive this offering.
Also, what’s a celebration without a PARTY! SAVE THE DATE… I will be hosting a BOOK RELEASE PARTY on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, from 6-9pm… with food, beverages, a raffle and a short inspirational talk. More details to come. You’re invited!
Reclaiming Beauty Journal & Wisdom Deck available for PRE-SALE now… full availability will be in September!
Enjoy these pictures from the beautiful delivery day morning!
And keep climbing towards YOUR dreams.
Walk in beauty,
