― Alexandra Stoddard
Alexandra Stoddard is one of my favorite authors, mainly because she has taken her creativity and extended it to all areas of her life. She began her career as an interior designer and went on to write several books on design and lifestyle. I enjoy the way she encourages living creatively and beautifully without having to be wealthy. That we can choose to experience things that bring happiness and comfort into our lives... writing with a favorite color ink, lunch with friends, shopping for antiques in Paris. (smile)
To me, that's the essence of living an awesome life. Even though I only "know" Alexandra Stoddard through her books, I consider her a mentor. She reminds me of how I'd like to live with creativity and beauty. So what I do today, right now, is practice my craft.
