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.

Embracing a Trend

Day three of our Winter Challenge.  I visited Natalie's closet to find a trend to embrace.  She loaned me this fun polka dot shirt and a pink neon belt.  Polka dots make me think of my fun yellow dress that I wore as a little girl and then Natalie (its boxed up for that next little girl :) so I don't think I have worn them for a long time!  So, this is trendy for me.  Polka dots from Natalie's closet, Neon belt from Natalie's closet, pants from Lolabellas - citizens of humanity (favorite jeans, ever!).

Can you tell from this picture - I'm saying hurry Steve we've got to go :). 
In other notes,  I think Cricket is trying to embrace the trend of snow.  Cricket and I walked up to Dick's Market yesterday.  Sunshine with snow makes for a beautiful, challenging walk.  It was cold, crisp, and we needed to be deeply aware of each step.  Cricket has to use some judgment - slushy snow is okay to walk through. We can't stop for every step.  Crusty snow becomes an obstacle.  Truly a mindful walk.  I found myself reflecting on how life is in that way ... we enjoy deep beauty and also challenges sometimes simultaneously with one another.  On the way back I received a great call  related to work.  I stopped for a minute to pick up the call but also knowing that my Cricket was standing in snow and was probably hoping it would be a brief call :).   Such a good, patient girl.

Oh so cute fashion! And while I'm sure you looked extra fashionable playing in the snow with Cricket, it makes me smile that your sweet pup is such a patient one.
