Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of yourself with the Hipstimatic app on an iPhone? That is all I had time to do today! I must have taken 6 shots and couldn't get the skirt in...so I got frustrated, along with a cramp in my hand, and quit. Yes, I wore a tie and I love it! Paired this with my white Fumbling Foe skirt, pictured in my 4/30 post, and my nude pumps. The shirt is denim Banana Republic. I am sorry that you can't see the whole ensemble, I would say I would put it on tomorrow and take pics, but that probably won't happen! Now, I am going to settle in to my bed for quiet. My toddlers have drained the "me" out of me today!!!

Today was great! My Public Relations Company pulled off an amazing event in a weeks notice! I was so proud of my partner Casey! He did a fabulous job and even jumped in as the Keynote speaker. He was Awesome, I can see him speaking to very large crowds one day! The event was our client, Comfort Keepers, annual appreciation luncheon. This was our first time to really see them in action. I knew what they did, but today I "got" it! I was brought to tears by a young lady who was so touched and thankful for her parent's caregiver, that she came to the podium to share with the audience. There was so much love in that room you could feel it! The caregivers genuinely LOVE their jobs! I started thinking about the little things, and how spoiled I am. I want and need nothing, yet I seem to find a way to complain at times. I have my health, my family, and I am blessed! I am so glad that in the busyness of my job, God found a way to remind me of that!

Crescendo Public Relations had a proposal due today. I am praying that it is the start of a great working relationship with a new client! The other exciting news is I am planning my first runway show for a Platform Art event in April! It is going to be SO very cool! I can't give away the surprises...but the runway show will be an artful spin-off of the Wizzard of Oz! In addition I am also planning a PR 101 seminar for mid-March. Those tasks combined with 4 kids = a very busy mommy! I love my work, ALL of it! Even as my 2 and 3 year old are currently melting down as they fight over a toy in the living room! It's all good! Tomorrow is my day home with them, so I am thinking a long run, the park for lunch, and NAPS!!! Top: Johnny Was, Dress: J. Crew, Belt: Banana Republic, Shoes: Ross, Necklace: Stella & Dot. Oh and the amazing pop-up book was a gift from my husband for Valentine's Day! I LOVE it! If you love shoes, it is a must have! I know it is available on Amazon, but I believe he picked it up at Borders!

Family Life event. My marriage has not been the pretty picture that I had painted in my mind. We have been through some very tough situations that I won't elaborate on. I have been hurt, and that's all I have to say about that. It has been some time now, and I realized today, that as much as I was skating through life holding it together for everyone else, I have been harbouring some massive bitterness towards the hubs. I also realized that giving it over is a process, that I have to work on daily. Love is a choice, I think we are all given so many worldly examples of what love is supposed to be that we forget the Godly examples. When times get tough, the world says, ditch him...he's a looser. God says, with my power...you can forgive and with two willing and open hearts, I can make your marriage stronger than ever. I'm going to go with God's way. I know I will fail at times, but I trust in Him. I feel lucky today, to have a husband that realizes his faults and is willing to let God work through him. After all of the hurt, I am blessed.
On to the outfit...the belt trick is courtesy of Sydney's tutorial! I have a girl crush on her...for those of you who may be dismayed...a girl crush does NOT mean that you swing that way...but that you totally admire and adore her! Top & Belt: J.Crew, Cardigan: Target, Pants: Victoria's Secret, Shoes, Nine West (nude pumps but you can't see them), Necklace, Vintage: My Mum-Mum's, Watch: Michael Kors.
