Love Song



 What the World Needs Now




After another week of drama, tremendous change, and uncertainty, we need a positive light shone upon us.  How about a sign that the world will once again find peace and harmony?  And, that people will come together and love one another and treat all with respect and honor.  

Today, I had coffee with a dear friend, and it was refreshing to connect and be outside, masks on, laughing and enjoying the moment.  Plus, meeting new friends with interesting life stories.  After all, is not that what life is about - connection and laughter.  I also chatted with another friend on the phone and my heart was lifted.  And earlier in the day had attended a Bar Class and Tennis with friends.  All appropriately six feet apart and with masks.  The sisterhood is alive and well. 

We live in a glorious world and even though the joys of 2019 have been swept away under the carpet until the future, we can still enjoy one another.  This change is so rapid, complete, and utterly shocking. We need a lift and lots of love.  Something to believe in.  Thus, seek out the beauty in the world. Be fearless, safe and get outside.   

Finally, I was reminded of a famous Burt Bacharach song - What the World Needs Now.  I believe we need love, hope and peace now more than ever.  


What 




What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.


The






Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.


World 





What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Needs




Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.

Now




What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Is Love, Sweet Love



No, not just for some, oh, but just for everyone.


Get outside. Connect with others. Where your mask and get on with your life.  This is it.  No dress rehearsal.  Though many doors have been shut and life is spinning at an outrageous speed, we will survive.  It is the human condition to be a fighter and to persevere.  Start spreading hope, love, and peace.  Put your fears aside and keep a firm foot on the ground.  Meet new people.  Learn their stories.  The world is a beautiful place.  


What the Worlds Needs Now



 




 Until Next Time!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…

We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …
