Tour Jacket

Barb asked me to go on tour.  I have never been on tour.  I have been to a Rick Springfield concert and a few years ago I saw Dave Matthews, but our own tour sounded…well, righteous. I started thinking about the tour bus and my wardrobe.  Barb studied at Julliard, she’s an accomplished composer and…

Strong Fibers

I have only been scared a handful of times in my life.  Of those, I was only terrified once. I’ve stood up for my family or friends, but I’ve never moved a mountain, led a cause.  I’m not sure one has presented itself to me.  I’m certain I have never sought one out.  I’ve never…

Pin Stripes

I need to be more serious.  Expensive shoe wearing, fine leather bag carrying, author portrait where I’m looking over my shoulder in some way, serious.  A scarf that’s not fuzzy with every color in the crayon box is in order or maybe even…lip liner. If I become more serious, play the part, then I will…

Shamelessly Low Neckline

This post will be reminiscent of that co-worker who brought in the gift wrap catalog for her child’s school fundraiser, or possibly the crazy Girl Scout cookie mom. For those of you not yet in the workforce, this post will feel like that friend who always asks you to like every Instagram picture of her…

Labor Day marks the end of summer. It used to be the last day it was acceptable to wear white or seersucker, but I’m pretty sure that’s changed. When I lived back east, school started after Labor Day. Oddly enough, Labor Day is also the second largest shopping day of the year. Second only to…

I often suffer from Perfect or Not Participating Syndrome. I guess that would be PNPS? People afflicted with this syndrome need to be at the top, they need to be the best. Everything needs to look just so and be the way they visualize it, in order for them to participate. This leads to missing…

New and Improved Detergent

It seems that Brazil nuts help with anxiety and citrus is good for stress, according to Dr. Oz. I’m not a Dr. Oz follower, but at the same time when I’ve seen a snippet of him on television, or read an article, I like him.  I should say, I like what he has to say…

Dress Greens

You know that scene in A Few Good Men when Jack Nicholson says, “You can’t handle the truth!”? I know he turned out to be a maniacal nut bag, but that line sticks with me. Most of the time I disagree with Jack.  Our government is too complicated and what are we really building in…

Patchwork

If this were a serious blog, if I really meant business, I’d write an enlightening perspective on the healthcare reform. If I were chic or fashionable, I’d discuss something pithy like a new interior design trend or the latest in summer footwear. Crafty Moms, Super Moms, Working Moms, they write posts about clever shortcuts or…
