HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL

Love Tiffany’s facade on 58th and 5th in NYC.  Yellow Diamonds…their brand identity. The day began with my early morning walking route, from 65th down Madison, cross 5th to the Rockefeller tree and NBC…Bergdorf and Saks windows, Bloomingdales first floor, and Barney’s.  I needed to get my ‘fix’ of holiday inspiration.

Adrenaline is high walking on 47th St diamond district through Times Square to Penn Station. I [...]

Magnificence of Nature is Breathtaking at Amangiri Canyon Point, Utah

 

The Majestic West…appropriately experienced by us just before Thanksgiving. Kept me grounded, in awe, and  THANKFUL to have the FREEDOM to experience beauty with family and friends, and GRATEFUL  for these moments  and shared experiences.

To share this quote from our Thanksgiving table:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, [...]

Decorating your house for Halloween could not have been more fun this year.  Walking the dogs, I had my camera at hand all week taking pictures in my neighborhood. You can tell that families were having fun making their house haunted and scary.

Friday night, Halloween, I called Halloween City, Halloween Spirit, and Halloween Express.  I wanted to know if markdowns would occur and if there might be a DAY [...]

I’ve been in the philanthropy circuit the last few months,  involved with wonderful organizations and people that do great work in the non-profit world.  Employees and volunteer teams work hard to support families, men, women, and girls. I have had the task of raising money, learning what it takes to get a commitment, and what motivates people to GIVE.

THE RED CROSS-  I had  the privilege of being invited to [...]

Remember when Richard Branson started Virgin Airlines before he was crowned SIR?  I thought he was fabulous…I wanted to work for him.  Why?  He said that one of the key differences that made his company a special place to work was the fun and freedom of expression that rested from the absence of employee handbooks that read like some kind of a corporate penal code.  Recently I heard an [...]

50 Year Celebrations

I’ve always been a Car Gal.  My favorite car the FORD MUSTANG. Fifty years ago the first Mustang was introduced- 1964. At this time, growing up in the midwest, my father had Buicks, my grandfather had Chryslers, my boyfriend had a Chevy, and my mother had a Nash Rambler.  I knew the names and models to every car on the street.  

My friends in college drove Mustang convertibles.  We were [...]
