A Different Type of Client

Michelle is lovely, funny and complex. She has a lovely voice that sounds like a delicate whisper. She worries about the size of her arms in a sleeveless top and the size number on the tag of her clothes.

Help – I’m Drowning!

“Women can have it all!” Who said that? And can I punch that person? What if we don’t want it all? What if we just want a little bit?  I don’t need it all. I’m not good at all of it. Sometimes I want all of it to go away.   Some days I don’t knowContinue reading “Help – I’m Drowning!”

My kids are usually capable, fairly independent people, but when it comes to putting on snow clothes they become 2Continue reading “Why Can’t I Wear A Sleeping Bag?”

What to Wear – Brunch

This morning a friend called and asked what exactly should she wear to brunch? My mind exploded with ideas but here are some general ideas/guidelines.
