CAPES [something empowering] “You must forgive in order to understand.  Until you forgive, you defend yourself against the possibility of understanding…If you forgive you may indeed still not understand, but you will be ready to understand, and that is the posture of grace” (excerpt from Home, by Marilynne Robinson).  

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Lately, I’ve been tossing heaping handfuls of organic kale into my morning smoothie.  The magic bullet blends it to perfection, and it’s just another way to go green!    

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  Anyone else out there spending more money on their iPhone cases per year than their iPhones?  I’m in the market for a dependable, yet fashionable case.  Switcheasy has my vote so far.

giving outfits a test drive

CAPES [something empowering] As of today, glassybaby has given over a million dollars to charitable causes dedicated to healing.  Their one-of-a-kindness now has a new goal: one million more.  

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  I have a boot problem.  Okay, addiction.  Currently saving up for these.  They look like they are made for walking, and [by this time next year] that’s just what they’ll do

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  Does anyone else give special occasion outfits a test drive?  Translation: I’m going to a garage dance party tonight in honor of my sister-in-law turning the big 2-9 (I love you Afton!!), and I’ve been testing out dance outfits all week.  Is it just the planner in me, or do other people do this too?
