Today is my son Jason's 37th birthday......I wish him the happiest of days.
37, where did 37 years go? In my heart of hearts I don't feel any older than I
did 37 years ago.
It goes so very fast. It is imperative that we cherish each day, and enjoy what we are doing. Too many dislike their jobs, or their relationships, and to these people I say find something to do that you are passionate about, and find someone you care about, and who cares about you. Learn to take risks, and learn not to take yourself too seriously. A sense of humor is a must, and one needs to laugh often.
I am trying to live more artfully, and to be a bit more brave each here's to you Jason, I love you, and hope that your life is full of passions and joy.......
.............pearls are precious, but sons are priceless.

I am learning something new today......actually I have been
trying to learn to work a digital camera for days, and today I have made a breakthrough. I still don't know how to work the flash, and here's a flash, neither do any of the many people
that I asked at work, including the young was that for a run on sentence!
Well, as you can see I have successfully downloaded a picture which I took this morning and was even able to rotate the angle. I think there is entire world waiting for me. Remember Valentine's Day is a great time to give a pearl necklace, and a better time to receive one.
Today the sun is shining, finally, and I am feeling energized to is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be Put on your pearls girls and enjoy the day.

Happy New Year

It has been too long since last I wrote, and my New Year's resolution is to write more
frequently.........what has been going on since September, mmmm who remembers. I did see
the movie "Julie and Julia", which totally fed into my francophile need. I never followed Julia
Child in the 70's or the 80's, but have become somewhat obsessed with her, more as a person
than as a cook. She and Paul Child had the most beautiful, loving relationship......he absolutely
adored her. How wonderful to be adored by your husband. Julia Child became the person she
was through his encouragement and support.
I still think her recipes have too many steps, and ingredients, especially for someone such as myself who is ADD, but I am enjoying reading her cookbooks, which I recently purchased. I am
waiting for "My Life In France" by Julia to arrive. Did I mention that I bought the DVD, and watch it regularly. Speaking of the DVD....the introduction trailers to the movie are 2 current movies, and there is a trailer for "Sleepless in Seattle" and "Hanging Up"........why are they
advertising 2 movies from 10 years ago? Am I missing something here???????
Getting back to all things French.........French women have qualities that the rest of us just weren't given....self-confidence, a bit of arrogance, incredible style.........speaking of style, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that every woman should have and wear pearls. What a classic and versatile accoutrement.............pearls represent preciousness, and purity. I will be adding new designs to my collection in the next month, so please check
I want to say Happy Birthday to my dear friend Judi.......we have been friends since the third grade, and she is as precious and classic as any pearl.

Dress shabily, they notice the dress.........dress impeccably, and they notice the PUT ON YOUR PEARLS GIRLS, and stay warm this blustery day.
