I'm a nationally published lifestyles journalist and photographer. I focus on the magic of ordinary moments -- the moments we overlook as we rush through our busy days. I collect quotes that inspire me, and pair them here daily with my photos. As a nod to my years of writing Sunday newspaper columns, I also post essays and reviews on weekends. You're welcome to share my posts with friends. Social media sharing buttons are included in the beige area under each post. ~Cindy La Ferle
If ever we needed a fairy tale escape, we needed one this week. The marriage of Harry and Meghan took us all to a magical place where love, diversity, grace, and the power of positive transformation were celebrated in ways we haven't seen before -- at least not in our own country.
Though I've always been an Anglophile (it's in my blood), I've never been obsessed with royal weddings. But this time around, I can't get enough of the ceremonial recaps on television. Thank you, Meghan and Harry, for renewing my sense of hope and showing the world what joy looks like again. ~Cindy La Ferle
