Lots of interest and activity this week about a book I wrote four years ago has me reflecting.
So much has changed, even since this first pic when we stumbled upon copies at a #vestaviahills boutique during one of our first visits home.
First book led to the PR person always behind the camera instead sitting at the interview desk.
First book signing marked the celebration of a personal and professional milestone. It also reminded me that my tribe is one loyal bunch, and a lot bigger than I realized. I remember everyone who was there that night - their presence spoke volumes.
Oh, and then there’s that other change - 60 excess pounds I’m no longer carrying around!
Thankful that I said “Yes” when the publisher reached out. Grateful for the colorful characters I met in my research. Proud of what I learned in the process, and how that has shaped other aspects of my life in unexpected, I-didn’t-know-I-could-do-that ways.

Costume Design can be a lonely job, which makes me especially thankful for other costume designer friends like @johncoulterdesigns who is encouraging and inspiring with no competition even when we both work for the same companies❤️ I loved running into you today, thanks for always being kind and real! I appreciate you and admire your beautiful work and work ethic! And even though we were both hot and sweaty still posting this pic🤭🤗#designerfriends
SOUL WORK STIPEND FAQS (for potential clients):⠀
“What about confidentiality?What if I don’t want many people to know I’m going to therapy?”
We hear you and understand this concern fully. ⠀
That is why we’ve set it up so that funds will go directly to our therapist partners so that you can go directly to them, fill out the paperwork, and get started. ⠀

This morning I woke up feeling like a freakin *~:::queen bee:::~* 🐝
This week, I’ve been focusing my attention on tuning in with my body.
Through rest, physical therapy, and saying “hell ya!” to whatever foods I feel like eating.
My friend’s parents’ backyard is a literal fairy palace.
It’s amazing going through each little bit, watering the flowers & herbs & veggies one by one
.•\\• t a k i n g t i m e •//• .
Starting the day off with coffee & playing fetch with a sweet pup, it’s important to get that quiet time in...enjoying the space in between.
There are big things to create & good work to be done.
May you give Self whatever space & time it needs before you carry on through this beautiful day.
