My friend, Mindy Lockard, is a nationally recognized etiquette consultant based in Oregon. Mindy and I met on Twitter and over time, I really looked forward to her tweets, then later conversations and friendship. In addition to her professional duties, she maintains a wonderful blog where she shares many tips on not only etiquette, but gracious living.
I love one of her recent posts about the Gratitude Tree she uses in her home during this time of year to remind her family of all the things in which they have to be thankful. Beautiful cards are filled out by each family member and hung on the tree.
Mindy gives a full tutorial of how to build your own potted gratitude tree. And she sets it with insulating foam! Very cool! Now is the time to create your own for your Thanksgiving celebration!
