A Pretty Woman Moment

Art Doodles

Have you ever been shopping with your best friend?

Of course you have!

They are the ones that can truly tell you if an item looks good or not without hurting your feelings. They are invaluable.

I met Julie at Nordstrom’s in the the shoe salon. May I be so forward to say we were best friends right away? She understood my shoe needs from the get go. Yes, needs.

Julie also helped me to appreciate being pampered by The Man. She made it such a relaxing experience and enjoyable too!

Thank you, Julie, for helping to create my Pretty Woman moment!

(If your looking for a little shoe advice go to Nordstrom Shoe Salon in Bellevue and ask for Julie. You won’t regret it!)

A man found me.

He buys me shoes.

Nuff said.

Thank you, Babe, for decorating my feet so beautifully!

Miss Thank You's Mailbox

My dear friend, Erin, is extremely prompt with notes and letters of thanks. And of course they are beyond cute!

Before the Christmas holiday, a note of thanks arrived in my mailbox.

The reason you might ask? I helped to plan and execute her engagement to a wonderful man, David!!!!!!!! The astonishing thing is that I received the thank you note 2 days after she became engaged. Like this woman doesn’t have the Christmas holiday to take care of and now the joy of retelling her engagement story to everyone in sight. She is such an encouragement on avenues of appreciation!

The hardest secrets to keep are the ones that you known will bring extreme joy and happiness to the other’s life. But alas I was able to keep my mouth closed and assist David and Alla (The Second in Command to David).

The soon-to-be engaged, David, in the middle, beaming with joy with his “crew” moments before Erin arrived at the scene. Such a fun moment to be a part of!

I have recently been ogling the windows of Kate Spade with the bright colors and gold accents. Ya just can’t help but to smile when a pop of color catches your eye and twinkles your senses.

 This note from Erin was no different. A crisp thick card stock with neon pink script writing and stark black checks next to the exploits of thanks. Not to mention the “wrapping.” A goldenrod yellow envelope with gold and white striped insert. Oh joy!!!!

Thank you, Soon-To-Be MRS, for a bright spot in my mailbox!
