Making Lemonade out of Lemons….

Posted on: March 24, 2014

I don’t want to boo- hoo about our crazy freezing temps, so instead used it as an opportunity to wear

My mulit meida moto jacket , as I haven’t worn it as much as I’d have liked to this winter…

Although it was chilly, the sun was shining bright and there was little wind, which I’ll take any day over the cloudy, raining, sleeting and windy Sunday we went through or the snow and storm we are exepecting Tuesday…


I love this cobalt shade and have had a pair of black and cobalt print jeans, but so many times I wished they were solid for added versatility, so when I discovered these on a major clearance, I indulged myself…


You’ve seen this purse recently and I have to say it might quickly become a favorite.. the shape and color make me off the charts happy and not at all feeling blue about our extended winter temps..


It really was nice to wear this moto again because while Spring is slow to arrive, I know very well that our Spring will be short and before I know it I will be dealing with our scorching humid summers and having to pack up my moto jackets and boots.

Dear Readers, I know a lot of you are like me and awaiting the arrival of this much anticipated Spring and I hope you find ways to challenge yourself to keep your spirits up and deal with it in a positive light… It is what it is….


I am so grateful to my oldest son, a fashion conscious man who loves to share his stylle choices with me… He put together a look with a chambray shirt, jeans and a mocha and black striped cardigan that was just fabulous, but alas once again refuses to let me photograph him.  

I am grateful that my DD will have Saturday off and be able to attend a Cherry blossom festival, as her love of all things from Japan is still strong.  (having a Saturday off is a rare thing unless she requests it) 

I am grateful that after two days of Vertigo returning (milder episodes, but still nauseating) I had a day fee of it..

I am grateful to my mother and her beautiful example of optimism that I now cherish and remember when I start to let  silly things get me down.

hooray for no vertigo! Looking good as usual in blue. Thanks for the reminder to stay positive waiting for spring. I needed that, we got a dusting of snow last night and won’t get above freezing today.

This is a tough time as the calendar and mother nature are at odds with each other and we are in the crossfire…Thanks for your comments, I missed them!!!
