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.

21-Day Challenge. Mixing Patterns.

I realized day three  - mixing patterns was way out of my comfort zone. Without the ability to see in a mirror, I realized I don't ever attempt to mix and match patterns. I stick to basics. So, as you can see, I didn't get too creative with subtle striped pants, a crazy design shirt, with a lacey designed tee underneath. Most mornings, Steve gives me the thumbs up on my outfits. He was gone so I was on my own to hope it looked okay. My two compliments on my outfit came from a 12 year old and 14 year old client!  A positive of this outfit is I refound this lacey top in my drawer. 
Lacey top:  Ann Taylor
Orange top:  Ann Taylor
Pants:  Banana Republic

Still loving prepping for our Self-Compassion Course to begin in a couple weeks.
Thought for the day from Kristin Neff:  Rather than wandering around in problem solving mode all day, thinking mainly of what you want to fix about yourself or your life; you can pause for a few moments throughout the day to marvel at what's not broken.  (I like the word marvel).

Steve and I had a window of time to do our 24 mile ride.  We increased our time by 10 minutes - awesome.

The Fashion Challenge....sounds like, well, a challenge.
You looked great in all your outfits.
since I don't work anymore, or rarly go anywhere that requires "dressing up"
I switch back and forth with my black t-shirt to a navy blue t-shirt. (tee,hee)
not much of a challenge there.

good to be visiting you again after my break. It was very much needed by me and I am hooping to be much stronger this wiinter.
hope, hope. hope
