As a mom I know that caring for others is natural, and is often
done without any forethought, but it’s taking of ourselves that is
not always as easy. It’s not that we don’t understand why it’s important.

we take care of others. It’s just that we forget and before we know it
we’re running on empty-again.

In The Essentials of Fabulous the
fascinating book written by Ellen Lubin-
Sherman, I read a quote that got my
attention; “In her charming memoir,
D.V., legendary fashion editor Diana

How often do we ask for what we want? If you are like me not often enough!


Why not start this Mother’s day. All you need to do is ask for what will make you happy.

A little pampering and elegance always works for me. A tray filled with beautiful things that please my eyes and taste buds. The sweet and subtle aroma of flowers in a vintage vase that’s as lovely as the flowers that fill it and the two little words that make it all worth it

MERCI. Works too!
