"Pink Lobster"

That's it!!! I finally named my jewelry company-I just love the name! (The line is designed to be classic preppy, yummy to look at, upscale, fun jewelry.) I'm very excited because I have my first trunk show booked for April and it looks as if there will be a few to follow-very exciting! I'm in the process of having a ton of beads delivered that I ordered and will be heading into Boston to the wholesale jewelry district this week. So much to do before 4/15! I did contact a designer from San Francisco and she's going to design my company logo and business card. Things are progressing nicely...can't wait to post some photos of my designs in a few weeks! Well, that's my update on the biz...cheers!

I've been slacking on my posts because...

Our household has been plagued with sinus infections, ear infections and sore throats. Yup, you don't want to come here. Seriously, steer clear. However, we all seem to be turning the corner and getting over our illnesses which is a great thing- just in time for the crummy weather we are told is coming our way:) I'm crossing my fingers for sunshine come Friday. The big guy will be out of town on business so the little guy and I are headed to Cape Cod for the night to visit GiGi and Papi...I can't wait! It's always like a mini vacation when I visit the parents. We will head home Saturday afternoon. I'm making an appetizer to bring to Hunters' cousin Hannahs' first birthday party Sunday afternoon-not sure what to make yet? Prior to the b-day celebration we are attending her Christening...I'm looking forward to it. Okay, lot's of fun to be had coming up so I hope we all recover in no time! I'm taking my meds, my box of Kleenex and heading upstairs to retire for the night! Until next time....

It's a virtue...

...patience that is. I was extremely frustrated today when a certain situation arose and I chose to ride it out and be patient. For me, that was very difficult. Did I mention VERY difficult? I tend to react quickly and regret in leisure. Today was different. I definitely bit my lip and took a long while to digest the situation. I feel much better that I did so. There will be resolve and I will feel good about the way in which it happened. I came across this quote that I thought I'd share..."The two most powerful warriors are patience and time". -Leo Tolstoy

Couldn't have said it better myself.
