Oprah Quote

Happy Friday!

I had a fabulous tea at Starbuck's yesterday - Oprah's Chai Tea - Yummy! I love the quote on the sleeve around my cup and I wanted to share it with you:

"Know what sparks the light in you,
Then use that light to illuminate the world."
                                 - Oprah Winfrey

Have a fabulous weekend and illuminate the world!

On that note, I would love to hear what photo printer you love using! I look forward to hearing from you!
