The time of year is rapidly approaching and all the traveling and frantic planning that comes along with the holidays are just around the corner. The other day in Bloomingdales, I swear I heard an orchestral version of jingle bells. Then, while waiting in line to pay, I overheard a lady say she was ‘getting an early start on her holiday shopping.’ As if that was not enough, I went home to find a catalog in the mail from two different stores, offering Holiday Sales. Talk about getting the ball rolling early!
The whole idea of bringing only what’s necessary to school sharply contrasts against working with “luxury” handbags for the past three months; the term “luxury” directly implies something not crucial for living.

The sun is officially out and if you're anything like me, you spend your days sitting behind a computer, gazing out the window at the blue skies day-dreaming about being 10 again and summer vacation. If I'm lucky I may find myself meandering down to the pool for an hour or so on the weekend, where I then once again sit behind my iphone and work, so today I am sending out the message that we need to make some changes and stop reminiscing of the summer breaks we had as children and start reliving those sun drenched days of sprinklers, summer camp, sand castles and tree climbing.
