kateCAPES [something empowering] You don’t always have to act your age.  #LiveYoung

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  My coworkers know me all too well – Kate Spade + technology.  Love it.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I celebrated a birthday this week.  As a gift to myself, I decided to take on a yearlong reading project.  During the next year, I will read 52 books.  You smarty pants’ out there know that’s a book a week.  Please shoot me your recommendations!

Matter over mind (not mind over matter).

CAPES [something empowering] I have a friend who hops on the scale every day, but not because she’s trying to lose weight.  Alternately, she religiously weighs herself to prove to her mind that – though she may have had a large bowl of ice cream the night before – it doesn’t affect her weight the way her mind tells her that it does.  In a sense, she’s placing matter over mind.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  The Station Pizzeria.  In Woodinville.  It pairs nicely between a wine tasting or two, and I completely recommend the Cubano.  And after a few wineries and pizzas, I refer to the #Capes section to remind myself that I didn’t just gain 20lbs.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] If one is going to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, what should they wear?  This person is open for suggestions.  And they are also wondering if they can justify buying a new pair of boots?
