A Day of Giving

Today May 16th is designated as a day of giving.  Mercy House Global has teamed up with several organizations who work together to give women a brighter future.

“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.

A pearl is a healed wound.  An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl.  The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten.  We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

Fair Trade Friday Earring of the Month Club for February 2017

I have been a subscriber since day one of the Fair Trade Friday monthly box.  I love getting mail that is not all bills but also contains items that make our world a better place.  Beyond the monthly box Fair Trade Friday also offers a bracelet of the month club and an earring of the month club.

In February I also purchased the earring of the month for February.  I wanted to see what they offered and I was not disappointed!

I think I need to purchase a larger mailbox.  Took me a little wiggling to get my Fair Trade Friday package out of my box.

Jackson Square in New Orleans

We found ourselves several times in Jackson Square.  Early morning, afternoon, late nights we kept passing through it.  It was also the meeting spot for our Free Tours by Foot tour so that is why we were there late at night.

You just never know what you are going to see here!

Happy Mail

Yesterday the mail box held good things.  Lately its been full of college information, bills and magazines.  This time there was only one college brochure, one magazine and my Fair Trade Friday package.

My first item is a taco cord keeper.  This will be so handy when I travel!  Between chargers and headphones I usually have some sort of mess brewing in my bag.

Time for Oysters!

We arrived late evening in New Orleans and we were hungry.  I had read several places that Acme and Felix’s were the place for oysters.  I had also read that Acme usually had a line down the street.  Since it was late Friday night we avoided the long Acme line down to the corner and had a short wait at Felix’s.

We were seated in the room on the far side and quickly given our drinks. I tried a Mississippi Honeybee and I could have sat and sipped those all weekend.  Yummy!

Whew, back to normal & Fair Trade Friday happened!

What a crazy past few weeks it has been!  Hardly enough time between trips to wash clothes and repack.   I hate to feel so rushed and pushed.  Digging through the mail I found my Fair Trade Friday package for January. That made my day!
