These Colors Make Me Happy!

Posted on: March 9, 2016

We had a very warm 80 degree day, 

but this Mom has to dress for the frigid bowling alley on Wedenedays!

The cocoon sweater,  olive pants and the purse all are in the same hues and 

work beautifully together.  

I added the one light element of the shoes to bookend the light shade in the print.

For jewelry I wore the purple and silver tassel necklace my daughter

gave me for Christmas.

My earrings are part of the set I purchased at the Italian Festival 

from a Capidimonte Artist. 

You can find the Artist’s website, HERE

After bowling we headed to Walmart to pick up some windshield wipers for my son

and the manager there compliemented my shoes. 

I picked them up for a clearance crazy price of $6 from Red Dress boutique.  

as one of my off season buys in the Fall of this past year. 

Self Care

I took a nap today at 6pm as I was exhausted!

 I also told my kids to fend for themselves for dinner, lol!

They are all definitely capable…

Gratitude 

I am so grateful for Amazon’s fast shipping as the Dress and shoes for my friend’s daughter arrived today , and I was able to run it to her and had the fun experience of seeing her try it on and squeal in delight and the best part was hearing her say she couldn’t wait to go to the dress rehearsel and tell her friends about it!  

I am grateful for my husband’s support in my desires to be “Auntie Tracey” and honor my mother’s giving spirit by helping my dear friend and her daughter. 

I am grateful that my husband got his new tires put on his car today and I can now feel confident that he is safe on the roads, with as much driving as he does daily. 

I am grateful for oppportunities and exciting things on the horizon, of which I can not really reveal.  

I am grateful that after 25 years of marriage that we still reach for each other and don’t take this relationship for granted.  We are still a work in progress, lol.

Wow…those shoes got my attention too!! You have a lot to be grateful for Tracey—it’s so nice to hear someone who realizes that (instead of focusing on the negative!), jodie

Thank you! My life of Gratitude began pretty young after my father passed when I was just 13. I realized I could either wallow in the loss or celebrate what we had and as the years went by I saw that what I had with him was indeed special as so many of my friends had unemotionally available fathers. My father was raised by 4 women and very much in tune with his emotional side and for that I am grateful! Hence began a decision to look for the positives and lead my life in a way that would make him proud. His legacy after just 13 years together is immense! I also had an optimistic mother who was a great example!
