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.

Favorites. Dress. Connecting

Today's challenge - Wear a dress.  I spent five years in a job where part of the dress code was to wear a dress. For the past several years, that isn't the case.   I find myself sometimes just wanting to wear a dress ... just because. This Ann Taylor dress is one of my favorites.
Natalie flies home today.  I've loved and savored every minute.  Last night we had a bridal shower and such fun to reconnect with friends.  Today, another yoga class with Natalie, brunch with a dear friend and Natalie, and a little more time together with the boys.   Good times. I love my family. After we say goodbye to Natalie, Steve and I will hop on the bike for our loop.   Back to work tomorrow for a full day.  I love my work. 

When people go to work, they shouldn't have to leave their hearts at home.

That's a terrific dress on you, Becky. Today, I'm going to do a "Becky" and take my daughter out for a fancy lunch. I've had a gift certificate I need to use, and she's leaving for college in a few weeks. This growing up and leaving home stuff is for the birds!

What a pretty dress! I'm visiting my parents this week and will fly home on Sunday. Te goodbyes are always a stinker, but I am so happy for the time I have with them!

I love your dress and that saying about work. I wish I could apply that saying. Maybe I need a new job...

Becky I LOVE LOVE LOVE that dress!!! It looks so darling on you! I need to check out Ann Taylor more often! I'm so happy Natalie is in town and you two are having fun together. Nothing like a little mom/daughter time. It's one of my favorite things too.
