Happy September, friends! September is one of my favorite months of the year (though they say we shouldn’t play favorites) and I can’t help but feel a rush of excitement upon waking this morning. The beginning of fall, the change of seasons, the excitement of the holidays coming up…all of it means something special and all of it brings a sense of beauty, a sense of peace into my life. This month, we want to focus on the beauty in our lives and spend some time talking about “The Art of Beauty.” Because, dear friends, beauty is an art.
All this month, we will celebrate beauty and what it means and we will honor the beauty inside each of us. Beauty is a tricky concept when we start to confuse it with appearance and worth and competition. Here at the BSP, our definition of beauty goes much deeper than skin deep. We want to spend September talking about everything beauty means to us and the art behind it. We will bring you brands and artists who celebrate the beauty in making, ideas that will honor the beauty of our daily tasks, and dialogue about what it means to embrace the beauty around us. It’s going to be a good month, indeed!
