a little spark of kindness can put a colossal burst of sunshine into someone's day...
I'm always in awe of the comments and encouragement I receive on a daily basis from One Fine Day followers. Now I know the majority of my readers are family members, so that probably doesn't count, but I want you all to know how much your kind words and feedback mean to me. Call me a daredevil, but starting a blog was a bit of a risk for me -- I felt like I was putting a lot on the line! How silly?! Writing can make you feel a bit vulnerable, and I hate the feeling of being judged. I mean, what if I use too many exclamation points or use a word incorrectly? Gawd forbid! Yes, I lose sleep over these sorts of things. I love the proper use of a semicolon just as much as the next grammar girl, but I don't claim to be perfect at it. Thankfully, you've proven me wrong -- I've received nothing but LOVE. You don't even judge me for overusing commas! I'm getting a little verklempt. You've given me confidence, and you make me eager to post daily. I'm not sure how I can ever thank each and every one of you for all of the warm and fuzzies you've sent my way in the past few months. It's meant the world to me, seriously. Email me your mailing address, and I've got a Thank-You note with your name on it! In the meantime, here are a few fabulous finds I wanted to share with you.
It's time for me to throw a splash of loveliness your direction.

A weekly planner with a cause
Sarah Pinto's youngest son was born with a heart defect. She says they take each day as it comes and feel blessed to have been surrounded by amazing doctors and nurses. As a result, a portion of the proceeds go to the Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.
