We always want to be surrounded by loved ones. Especially over the holidays. Yet, it's not always possible.

Right now, I am missing my sisters. There is so much is going on in their lives, and being halfway across the country doesn't help. I want them to know how proud I am of them. Some dreams coming to fruition, while others take a backseat. They are strong. Resilient. And most importantly, no matter what, they are loved.

We leave each day not knowing what the next will bring. Why not brighten tomorrow by letting your loved ones know just how you feel today. Now. Holiday or not.

It feels great.

Everything checked off the list. Wrapped and under the tree as of two weeks ago. Yes! While I'm not always this on top of it, I am reveling in this moment.

When you own a business, getting ahead of the curve seems impossible. However, I am moving in the right direction. And I look forward to what 2014 has to bring.

Until then, I will enjoy every second of being überly prepared for the holidays. Wishing the same for you!

I am so thankful. For my faith. For my family. For you. And for the opportunity to help others on a daily basis.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.

No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.

Brrr, coldness. It's official, winter is on its way.

I don't mind the cooler temps. In fact, I see this time of year as a great way to bring visual interest to all those layers. And nothing is better than a glamorous winter. Plush fabric. Rich, delicious color. Texture galore. 

Pulling looks together for clients this season has been a fabulous form of creative expression. Layering in new ways. Splashing a little surprise into every ensemble. Taking 'oldie but goodies' and making them current. And bringing fur into the fold, on a daily basis. Yes, winter is full of awesomeness. Are you ready?
