My feet are still on the ground. I’m just wearing better shoes.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Not only are Tieks Italian flats the most comfortable flats ever (click here for Oprah’s stamp of approval)…but after ordering them, they arrived in a beautiful box, with a pink flowery bow on the top, AND there was a handwritten card inside the box.  #WOWcustomerservice

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] The Rainbows For Noah blog is a must-read. Noah’s mommy is the author, and the words are hauntingly beautiful, honest, raw, and inspiring.

a happy beginning

IHCAPES [something empowering] In some circumstances, decisions can be compared to switching on a light.  Prior to making a decision, you’re in the dark.  You understand what it might mean to decide to switch the light on, but can’t experience the light until you actually go for it.  Only after the light is turned on can you experience the decision.

Whatever you’re deciding, know that you can’t fully understand or appreciate the other side of that decision until you act on it.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction]  The Invisible Hostess just won “Best Of 2013” for Seattle Bride Magazine (no surprise there since they also won in 2011 and 2012!!).  And yes, I will be partying with them in about 7 months.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy]  True confession: I’ve always thought that engaged couples are somewhat nauseating (you know who you are).  But now I get it.  I stand corrected.  The light has been turned on and I am enlightened.  Being engaged is a happy ending to my single-hood, and a happy beginning to what’s next.
