A day worth mentioning...

Today was a big day for me. Today I launched my new business as an Independent Consultant for Arbonne. I hosted a spa party at my house, wine and appetizers were served, and we showcased a product that is so good (GREAT!!) that it sells itself. This company has integrity and I am so glad I am officially a part of it!
I have adapted a new motto:
"No one will discourage me. I have what it takes, I just need to open myself up to learning"
That is what I believe it takes to be successful. I am going with it :) Care to stop me?

This morning, after I dropped Acilia at school, Miles and I went to Eggclectic. Our favorite place to go for breakfast. The man was there again. Coincidentally we ended up being seated RIGHT next to him. What a treat! He recognized me right away and we did formal introductions. Turns out his name is Don. He was married 56 years and his beloved wife passed away 7 months ago. My heart ached for him, but I didn't cry today. It was nice to converse with him, get to know him a little bit and I think he enjoyed watching Miles :) It was a nice breakfast. I have a feeling we will see Don more often, we both seem to like breakfast at Eggclectic!

On another note, yesterday marked one year since Grandpa passed away. In honor of him and his legacy left behind, I wanted to share (again) this post, in his honor:
In Loving Memory of Oscar


  1. Love your new motto. Good luck with your new venture!

    So cool you got to sit and talk with Don. :)

  2. It surely was a treat to get to talk to him for a bit :)


I love to hear what you have to say! Please feel free to post your thoughts!
