I can’t believe another year has flown by! Now that I’ve taken a moment to slow down and reflect on 2016, I am amazed at all of the wonderful projects and blessings that took place. I know I cant say it often enough, but I’m truly thankful for every reader and every life the Hoffman Media staff influences with our publications. I especially enjoy sharing my likes and thoughts with you all here on The Ribbon In My Journal! Today I wanted to share with you three of yours (and my!) favorite posts from 2016. From remembering to practice acts of gratitude each day, to my obsession with traveling to Williamsburg and cozy southern style inspirations from Southern Lady Magazine, we have covered it all!


1. 10 Ways to Practice Gratitude

Practicing gratitude in our daily lives is one of the best ways to create a joyful existence. Think about it. When you’re feeling appreciative of the people, places, and things in your life, there is a great sense of contentment and little room for negativity. We can all be more gracious in our day-to-day lives…

2. Seasons of Williamsburg

Those of you who know me totally understand my obsession with Williamsburg. I love the city in all seasons, and I have written about my experiences there many times. Strolling down Duke of Glouster Street and observing the beautiful gardens inspires creativity…

  1. Well, I received a nice surprise and treat on a recent after-Christmas shopping trip in Denver, CO with my new daughter-in-law. We stopped by the Cherry Creek shopping mall, and during the tour of lots of shops, I realized I was seeing a vendor name so familiar from absorbing issues of Tea Time: it was Capital Teas! The helpful staff informed me it was the first one this far west. Of course, I definitely made a purchase. Kudos to Capital Teas on their new adventure!

  2. Happy New Year Phyllis and Staff at Hoffman Media ! We are all so very grateful for you and your wonderful publications!

    You indeed have so much influence on us as you give us so much inspiration, beauty, and tranquility in an otherwise very demanding, and sometimes crazy, life!

    I look forward to another wonderful year of your magazines, and emails which really make my day!

    Thank you and God bless you all at HM !

    1. Hi Phyllis, I have every issue of Southern Lady magazine. I attended all but the first Southern Lady Lady conventions and enjoyed each one. They were such wonderful events: the speakers, accommodations, gifts,the food, but most of all the kindred spirit of all the attendees. I will never forget the welcome you extended to us and caused us to feel we were close friends and you desired our company. Through the years the authors, decorators, designers, artists, actors, and news commentators we met at these gracious gatherings are in the “journal” of my memories. Often I look back at pictures of the S.L. conventions and place my own” ribbon” to return another day. I met two ladies, sisters from Alabama, and we have remained friends through the years. Is there a possibility there could be a Southern Lady Reunion ? Just a thought and a wish to rekindle the enjoyment of the past. Thank you for the joy, the beauty, and the love of all things southern and gracious.
