april showers bring may flowers. happy april everyone! today the birds are singing right outside my makeshift office – the laundry room. there are several projects commencing at our house. but guess what? the tradesmen are not showing up! i’ve been through several home renovations in my lifetime, and this more-or-less rings true no matter what part of the world i’m in. time to put patience into practice so i’ll while away the hours by gathering up oscar and heading downtown. yesterday’s luncheon to celebrate dress for success was inspirational! the keynote speaker was a dynamic woman who co-founded the first african-american car dealership in atlanta with her husband. her speech resonated with the room filled to the brim with women of all ages. and it was this – confidence. we women need to be confident in ourselves, in our decisions, and we need to be heard. amen! and when you hear the stories of women who have regained their confidence through dress for success, well, you just never know whose life will be touched, whose footing will be regained, or what new directions will be taken.
on that happy note, oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend.
