Fashionable Writing: Lamy Fountain Pen 

I really love it! My Lamy fountain pen, that is. Sometime ago, I mentioned that I am in some facebook planner groups. Most of the members do not use a fountain pen. I was introduced to the fountain pen idea, after going to a cute pen boutique in the French Quarters called, Papier Plume. They have a treasure trove of items for agendas, pens, work bags, note cards, etc. I was in paper heaven. 

Today, I was in church taking notes on fighting the good fight (sermon topic) and I was engrossed in my notetaking and my pen was going out. Thankfully, I was able to finish taking my notes and realized that I was out of ink. However, raking my brain as to the location of my new ink cartridge I purchased🤔 

I have a habit of hiding things due to a little 6.5 year old who gets into everything imaginable. Those of you with kids or young siblings understand. 😘 After searching all over I finally found her in my makeup/planner bag. 🏌🏌🏌🏌🏌🏌

I can now begin journaling and planning. But I hit a snag: how do I change the cartridge? YouTube. Yes, youtube, to the rescue. I found this nice video on how to change the ink in a Lamy pen. So I sharing of course😎 Video on: 👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽Installing a Lamy fountain pen: Enjoy!

I am always appreciative when I am able to be blessed to attend events. You never know who you will meet. My truck was hit and I have been struggling. However, I pushed my way through and met my cousin Ceral Ann at the Windsor Court Hotel for her birthday celebration. While there, in walks Lady Oprah Winfrey. She blessed us wih her presence and took selfies with us; as well as, a group picture. There were only two parties in the room: ours and hers😎😍 She was gracious, kind and mother like. I had a chat with her. 
Me: I am happy to see you. I know you love educators and I am one. 

Lady O: what do you teach?
Me: I am a special education teacher. 
Lady O: smiles happily and we take a selfie.
Me: my face was all big and goofy, due to my excitement. I didn’t pose at all. Chin fat showing and all, lol! But it was Lady Oprah Winfrey💞 She looks like we could be daughter and mother.
