I recently purchased something from Annie’s Blue Ribbon Store in Brooklyn ( and love that the store’s motto is “Selection of the Best Life Has to Offer.”  I also love that, with my order, came a postcard titled “Ten Essential Steps for Having a Blue Ribbon Day.”  I thought I’d share them with you:


  1.  Follow your dreams and listen to your heart.
  2. Appreciate your loved ones and show them you love them.
  3. Be kind to strangers and smile!
  4. Take risks and accept that life is not always about being comfortable.
  5. Be present in your home, at your workplace, with your family, in your community.
  6. Grow something (and enjoy nature!)
  7. Make a child laugh.
  8. Celebrate every day.
  9. Take time to relax and unwind.
  10. Discover someplace or something new.


I hope all of you have a Blue Ribbon Day!
