One Good Deed a Day

 Good Deed a Day 3
What an amazing weekend! Our trip to Amelia Island was exactly what I needed to feel refreshed and more in touch with my man. Amelia Island is such a wonderful place, it feels as though it is a little lost in time. A beach town that has for the most part escaped commercialism – and I love that. Saturday we had an absolutely wonderful time, sunning on the beach, games with friends (corn hole anyone?) drinks on a beach patio bar. The cop was able to watch the Bruins beat the Canadians on a big screen TV so he was happy, and I got to enjoy live music from a local band. Sunday morning we woke up and had breakfast in two big white rocking chairs, listening to the sound of the ocean. We then made our way to the historic district of Amelia Island to tour the town and browse shops.

We stocked up on a few touristy items – t shirts, coozies etc. But when we came across a cute little shop called The Nested Turtle I knew we’d found something unique. The Nested Turtle just recently opened it’s doors on May 1st and they specialize in hand-inked paper goods and home gifts. Lisa the owner makes all of the cards herself on site – she has her drafting table set up in the front room of the cottage. If you are in the area be sure to stop by – but the shop also has an etsy shop!

I couldn’t resist picking up this adorable book that the shop had on display called “One Good Deed a Day”. What a charming idea! Each page has a ‘good deed’ idea on it and room for you to include the day you completed it and a little reflection on the experience. I think we all try our best to be positive people each day but for me I am trying my hardest to take an active role to change the way I interact with people on a daily basis. The book ideas range from taking a long walk outdoors to buying lunch for a homeless person. I am so looking forward to incorporating these ideas each day and making good deeds and positive thinking a priority.

 

Thanks for visiting my rose tinted world!
