Hello and Happy Monday, gang!
Isn’t the weather fantastic?!? It’s amazing what warmer temperatures and sunshine can do for your mood.

I really don’t have much to report from the weekend. It was filled with low-key time spent with friends. Michael and I were hanging out with Sonya and her husband for a significant part of it – they have a wonderful huge deck and we enjoyed sitting and talking and grilling. We also got acquainted with the newest member of their family. I promised a photo of him a few weeks ago … meet Spot!

Sunday afternoon I helped host a fun event with Bill Riley, Jr. Pure Fashion is a great organziation for young women and the fashion show is always a blast – particularly if you love clothes the way I do! If you know a young lady who might enjoy the program check out http://www.purefashion.com.

There are some other events coming up, too. This Friday is Take Back The Night. This year the event is happening at Des Moines University. Doors open at 5:30 and we start the program at 6. New this year in conjunction with National Crime Victims’ Awareness Week is the 5k for 5 Charities on Saturday. For more information http://www.5kfor5charities.com. On May 1st the Iowa Coaltion Against Domestic Violence hosts its annual “It’s About Time” gala. http://www.icadv.org.

That’s all for now – have a wonderful week!

    Thank you for your great posts – I have been lack in my writing, as I have gotten a job that takes me to Toronto, Canada for training almost every other week. But it has been nice to read your posts and get caught up with how things are “back home”. You are not alone with losing close 2nd moms – I too have lost recently, the moms on either side of my childhood home. We are at the age where it is bound to happen, but it doesn't make it any easier. And you're right, it is amazing to see our childhood homes in a different, older light – at least we have the memories. Keep the great posts coming, hope you are feeling better, and I am always looking for you at O'Hare!! :-)
