I love that Lorae is introducing us to Le Papier Studio, a company based in Richmond, VA, on this week's Company Memo. Since seeing the silhouette necklace she had made earlier this year, I have kept coming back to this unique online shop. It has all the makings of the best birthday/Mother's Day/anniversary/Christmas gift EVER and is as personalized as they come. Put it on your holiday list now, and share, share, share. Grateful that I get to see Lorae this weekend for a quick overnight in . . .

This week's Company Memo from Lorae makes me want to find a Fiddler Leaf Fig and put it in a Uashmama planter in front of my Lindsay Cowles feature wall.
