My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

My fun mother's day gifts included some hot pink earrings from Adam and Natalie, two giant bags of peanut m and m's (my favorite munching item) from Kendall, and Natalie gave me the fabulous book "Secrets of Simplicity" by Mary Carlomagno. I am loving it and trying to apply more of it in my life. One of the firt assignments in the book is the closet. For every item, run through the "should I keep it" checklist:
Does it fit?
Is it worn or torn?
Is it out of fashion?
When was the last time I wore it?
Will I wear it again?
And, perhaps I should add - is it nice and snuggly for Cricket? She loves to sleep in my closet.
(Sorry bad picture but you get the idea) Thank you, Natalie, for your fabulous help in letting me know what had to go ... it is amazing how the years fly by and you realize you still have a clothing item from long ago. My closet fills so good and definitely felt a little less cluttered. Anything you have been doing to simplify your life?
