Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

  8. Wow, so many creative links to explore. Thank you for the party. I decided to get a little creative with dinner this past week and wrapped up bundles of asparagus in bacon. My family loved it so I’m linking up here and I hope others will enjoy it too. 🙂

      Barbara, your Bacon Wrapped Asparagus looks amazing (and I’m not even particularly fond of asparagus!)
      However, everything tastes better with bacon 🙂 – just tweeted you out!

    Awesome blog and post! That’s a great idea to write about what inspires you. There’s so much that inspires everyone, but they just don’t realize it! Glad you do. This week, the main thing I was inspired by was stepping outside to get a hint of fresh air as soon as I wake up, every single morning. It really makes me feel great. Parfaits are delicious also, especially with a little granola! I recently created a blog on how to get inspiration to become creative. I feel that everyone has the potential, they just have to recognize it! It seems to have a little in common with your blog. I would love if you would check it out!
    (Much more to come on my blog) Thanks, and keep inspiring!

  37. I’d love to try that Verde chili!
    Thanks for your inspiring post.
