Beautiful Blue - SOLSC -May 11, 2021


Yesterday, when I got home from traveling all the way to the Target on my side of town (picking up new pens ordered earlier in the day), from my school not on my side of town, there was securely wrapped package waited for me.

Initially, because of the size, I thought the sender had purchased, "The War of Art" for me (our next book club book). Though I would have appreciated receiving the book, I sincerely hoped it wasn't, because another generous gift-giver had already sent me the book.

I searched for a vulnerable spot in the packaging that could be penetrated without the use of extra equipment, and slowly began removing the wrapping.

It wasn't long before I was holding in my hands the MOST BEAUTIFUL BLUE, leather-bound, dot-paper notebook. I can't explain why I was mesmerized by the color, but I was (and still am). As I write this notebook entry, I really can't find the words to justly describe the color, so I chose a blue pen (this blue pen) to write with. 

The Beautiful Blue Notebook gifted to me by a MOST Beautiful Friend.
Thanks Jen.


  1. Funny. I wrote about color, too. My new buttery yellow room. What a lovely gift from a dear friend. And all the feels for Teach Write blue!

  2. I love that color. Special packages are the best.

  3. What a lovely notebook and what a lovely friend!

  4. Donnetta, what a sweet friend and great gift. I love the quote: "Proceed as if your success is inevitable." Good to remember when starting a new notebook. Enjoy!
