{Untie the Ribbons!}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Whether you use a vintage sixpence, wedding penny, or lucky dime for your bridal coin, it represents the abundance of simple gifts all around you. “Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons,” author Ruth Ann Schabacker prompts us. Remember to keep your heart open so the riches of life have a place to land!

Indeed, your wedding coin is a reminder that every day is an abundant, beautiful day if you look with an open heart … and every day is an opportunity to celebrate simple gifts. Like the eighteenth century Shaker hymn reminds us: ’Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free, ’tis the gift to come down where we ought to be; and when we find ourselves in the place just right, ’twill be in the valley of love and delight.

Celebrate your abundance of love and delight!

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
