Who we are...

Who we are...

charmed by choice, the blog has been a long thoughtful walk through choices. Ultimately, choices to be resilient.
Our family is one of the thousands of real life examples from this recession ...
we have experienced jobloss, mounting debt, property depreciation....
After spending some time hovering in the freak out mode...we have decided there is a choice to be made.
We can choose to stare at all that's challenging us,
or search and concentrate on all the incredible examples of resiliency.
Come along and be amazed at how many people live resiliently...
recovering finacially, emotionally, physically, spiritually...
We've all been told not to stare... but I invite you to stare at all that's resilient.
Let's be inspired and inspire each other.

Online, local and fairly traded.... could there be a better combo?!

I have another exciting positive shopping opportunity to share with you!
A wonderful website
Scarves of Grace
You will find the link under
Shop Fair Trade
in the left column of the blog.

Not only are all of the darling scarves obtained through fair trade relationships,
but the web store is anchored in Indiana. 
This is very exciting for me, as it fulfills a personal goal ...
along with supporting social entrepreneurship and fair trade practices in general,
I'm hoping to promote those businesses that are "local". 
Local for me includes Indiana and Michigan based businesses. 
Those of you who are local too,
understand that if you live on the Michigan and Indiana border, you feel at home in both states! 
As a family, we have actually lived in both states and are thrilled to support positive opportunities provided by
friends in either of our "home states"

How cool is it to support fair trade and local entrepreneurship in one purchase!
