Mother Enlightenment




Mothers Day is this weekend and with this day it is interesting to ponder about the essence of what makes a mother, mom and a wise woman.  Mothers can guide children, can provide protection and can remain a constant force and role model to a child for life.  The word "can" is used since not all are graced with an inspirational and caring birthing mother yet this does not stop a child to form other "mother" attachments.   It is the beauty and desire of most women to provide wisdom to the next generation and to understand that the path of being a mother comes in many forms which does not always include birthing a child. There are all types of mothers ranging from women who give birth, adopt, stepmothers or being fortunate enough to be a second mom to their friends children.   The tapestry is breathtaking and fulfilling for women making choices to help build self confidence, inspire a work ethic and breath positive reassurance to young women, young girls or with girlfriends.  The joy is ten-fold, memorable and worth every moment. 

Don't Forget Your Dreams and Passions!


Along the path of  "Mother Enlightenment", it is important to not forget what drives a woman and to remember that children become adults with the end goal of forming a life that is separate from the parent.  In other words, all women must find a mission statement for themselves and build a life separate from rearing children which may include a career, a passion, a sport, a group, a loved one, travel, reading or anything that fills the soul.  Embrace yourself, thank yourself, embrace other mothers in life, remember those that have passed and more important never forget this is your life too.  Don't forget your spouse, significant other nor you in the process of raising children.




 

"Is that all there is? I thought there would be more.”


Boyhood an excellent film which depicts a family over a span of twelve years.  In many ways the film could have been called Motherhood since the audience watches the main characters age gracefully.  At the end of the film, she finds herself alone as her son departs for college and sadly wonders what has happened to her life.  Choose to not be this person.  Instead spread your wings, sail the seas and enjoy life's adventures by focusing on being a fulfilled woman who gives love and guidance to family, children and to all the women in your life.

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the d├ęcor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
