For Mother’s Day we want to say thank you to all moms for everything you do.

As a mom I know that caring for others is natural, and is often
done without any forethought, but it’s taking of ourselves that is
not always as easy. It’s not that we don’t understand why it’s important.
Even flight attendants remind us to put our oxygen masks on before
we take care of others. It’s just that we forget and before we know it
we’re running on empty-again.

In The Essentials of Fabulous the
fascinating book written by Ellen Lubin-
Sherman, I read a quote that got my
attention; “In her charming memoir,
D.V., legendary fashion editor Diana

How often do we ask for what we want? If you are like me not often enough!

 

Why not start this Mother’s day. All you need to do is ask for what will make you happy.

A little pampering and elegance always works for me. A tray filled with beautiful things that please my eyes and taste buds. The sweet and subtle aroma of flowers in a vintage vase that’s as lovely as the flowers that fill it and the two little words that make it all worth it

Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
