I am putting together “my” own perception of a capsule wardrobe. It’s linen season! On the meter of Madame Bohemian to Madame Chic ( Jennifer L. Scott ) . . . I am smack in the middle. The term “Elevated Bohemian” lights my fire for fashion at present.
Committed to move more. Push and pull harder. I shall not discount my gains in health, and the one size loss this past year. I had hoped for one more size down. I own it!
C & J ‘s Best Day Ever?
I just finished my last orders with ETSY to meet the wedding deadlines. ( I’ll have some praises and shout outs to share, post wedding.)
There’s still much to do, it is all so fun . . . and . . . most importantly the deeds and the details are to serve people I love . . .
. . . people who have served their love to me so many times.
Wednesday, I will share bit about Jay’s bachelor weekend. (Nothing like Vegas or The Hangover.) Believe me . . . the world is a better place with men like my son walks this earth with! I was brought to tears of gratitude as Jay told of his special weekend in Chicago.
In my thirties, I had the coolest white overalls from a company in San Francisco called “Esprit de Corp.”. I wore them and patched them into almost shreds.
Un mariage d’anglais et de français!
En français? Esprit de corps!
In English? Body of Spirit!
nounes·prit de corps \i-ˌsprē-də-ˈkȯr\ :: Definition of esprit de corps :: the common spirit existing in the members of a group and inspiring enthusiasm, devotion, and strong regard for the honor of the group.
( I’ll never quit my start – the – day – dreams . . . )
Today, I deliver you “esprit de fleurs” in white overalls . . . to celebrate our common spirit!
( . . . and to tell me . . . “work those tri’s a little harder! ) w/L
Mr D. just poured me a cup of coffee. We are up beyond early. It’s 3:58am as I begin.
The shelfie image (above) is from 2013. The floral scene, featured by Gardenista, calls for “off on the wall” fun.
“Let’s all just play florist today and leave our computers home!”
What threw me back to 2013, was this post , and it’s image from The Everygirl on Instagram. It had me swooning and once again thinking of . . . the always awhim of mine . . . owning and styling a flower and gift shop. The post, timed perfectly . . . the day before my paper flower making class at Paper Delights.
I had the most wonderful time at the class.
[“#1 ” . . . it threw me back to high school . . . with my girlfriends . . . when we would gather after school to make hundreds of paper flowers for our special school dances and teas. ]
Alicia served desert, and a beverage of choice. The experience was creative, colorful and so inspiring for me. (Well worth the twenty-mile drive to and from after a full day at the clinic.)
There will be so many more . . .
. . . as I plan many “Let’s play flower shop and leave the computer alone days on 34!”
