Thanks Momma for sending this quote. It gave me chicken-skin when you read it to me...

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills coutless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assitance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever, you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Long time..

Sorry All!

I've been neglecting my blogging duties.

I do have a laundry list of excuses...some pretty fabulous (Napa Valley!)...some work related...some, happily, Tim related...most a little stressful. Grand opening a 150,000 sq ft facility sounds glamorous, but I tell ya, it ain't.

So, what might become a long story, here is a brief nutshell: Many things are about to change in my life. A little hint? Let's just say almost 10 years in the Spa & Salon industry is no way to develop meaningful relationships...with friends, family and especially men. Long work weeks, nights, holidays and weekends are not designed for starting a family, little alone a relationship. So a change is coming. Soon. I'm really nervous (and vague!).... Please, say a prayer for me.

Real quick. Here are a few snapshots from our Napa trip (Tim's 30's!)...more to come...

*Tim took this with his phone! I look so, well, Little Mermaid-ish! My heart, truly, may be in San Francisco. It is my birthplace! Enough "!"?*

*Warm Toes...California lucks out with mild winters!*

*Del Dotto wine caves. The barrels are made in Missouri...weird...*

From today: The Annual Gypsy Caravan brought some much needed retail therapy. We got these great tin stars made of old roofs in India...I love finding treasures! (Another cell phone pic!)

Here's to living, and no time for blogging!

I hope it happens on a regular basis...minus the stress :)
