Good Morning Family & Friends,

Welcome to Candid by Carde Blanche.  This is my blog.  I am excited to be sharing with you my thoughts and emotions on a variety of topics.  Candid was selected to be the name of the blog based on the definition:

“Characterized by openness and sincerity of expression, unreservedly straightforwardness.  Not posed or rehearsed.”

There couldn’t be a broader lane for me to travel in.  I have an open forum to discuss random nuggets and don’t have to be too concerned with edits of perfection.  Otherwise I can’t claim to be ‘unreservedly straightforward and not rehearsed.”

I will start each week with a round up of sorts.  Monday Madness will combine funnies from the weekend, upcoming events or topics for discussion (hidden in the format of you comment at the end of the post, then I comment back, then you may go again if you’d like).

Today’s post could have been about gaining an hour of sleep then waking up 2 hours early for a net gain of zero.  Or what happens when you shower at 3pm and don’t plan on leaving the house?  Do you apply night cream early?  You know, stuff like that.

I promise I won’t bombard you with product placement, as I don’t claim to be an expert in market research.  But I will share with you some of my personal favorite goodies, details about why and pictures to boot.  These will post every Friday as Friday Finds.

For those of you interested in how I keep busy, I will give you an inside look at Carde Blanche and some custom invitations.  Don’t worry, no DIY here.  No tutorials or videos to watch.  That’s what you’ll see on hump day…Inviting Minds Want to Know.

You’ll also receive a goodie bag at this party…guest appearances will be sprinkled in to keep you coming back for more.  You’ll know them when you see them as they’re called, Be My Guest.

But right now I invite you to grab your coffee or tea, sit back and take a look around.  If you like what you see, please share it with your friends.

Candidly yours,
