she loved life and it loved her right back.

CAPES [something empowering] When I was a little girl, I asked my grandpa what he did when he doubted his faith. He told me that whenever he doubted, he would recall the times when things had happened to him that he knew-knew-knew were because of God. Then he asked me if I had any stories like that. Being younger, I couldn’t think of any. He then proceeded to tell me one of his stories. At the end, he said I could borrow his story until I got my own. I wish I could have told him before he died that I have some of my own stories now. There is nothing more powerful than someone standing in the gap and believing for you.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] DON’T: wash your hair every day. DO: use this fabulous dry shampoo in between washings. Oprah says you can actually “train” your hair to not need to be washed every day. However, please continue to shower frequently. Haven’t found a way around that one yet. Don’t you wish everyone used Dial?

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] Try to use these words today: callipygian & gesticulations. If you succeed, please comment how it went over (especially with that first one).

CAPES [something empowering] Fear always lies (except when it’s a big bear in your tent, then for sure let fear run your butt in the other direction).

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] I am always losing my flash drive. Recently, a friend showed me a magic pocket. Install it on your computer (it’s free!), and say “bye-bye flash drive”.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I can’t pronounce the word “peculiar”. Some would also argue that I can’t pronounce the word “house”. However, I CAN pronounce the words “strange” and “home”. Yea for synonyms.

Strrrrrrrretch yourself.

CAPES [something empowering] The pursuit of happiness is the source of all unhappiness. Look around you…find something to be thankful and happy for in your present state. Gratitude can be a really good feature.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Glassybaby isn’t a new trend, but giving to Haiti is…and thru the end of February, when you purchase a Glassybaby, mention “Haiti” and we’ll donate 10% to the relief efforts being made by Red Cross. If purchasing online, put “Haiti” in the promo code.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] When my nephew wakes up from his nap, he shoots his arms straight up and stretches for a good long while. I am inspired – I need to stretch more. Thanks again, Coop, you’re always teaching me something.

Don’t do that.

CAPES [something empowering] Sometimes people talk about you behind your back and it stinks. The temptation is that we then feel entitled to turn around and do the very thing that hurt us in the first place. Don’t do that. You’ll never regret not talking bad about someone.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] I am absolutely addicted to TJ’s tangerine juice. It’s fresh, tangy, bright orange, and I’d rather drink my vitamins than take a pill. Bottoms up!

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] They are here! Lululemon has Olympic Cheer Gear…I wish they had stuff for Holland, but the Swedish gear is pretty fun!
