Happy Wednesday, ladies! I got back home last night after being gone for ten days. Even though I was with my daughter and now two granddaughters, it was still a long time to be away, and if I am completely honest, I am worn out! I think I mentioned that my daughter had a c-section, so she needed a lot of help. There were several of us there to help, but I think I washed more bottles than anyone, and my hands and nails are proof of it. Between playing with my first granddaughter and feeding and burping (takes all day!) the baby, it was heaven, but this girl is tired! I was so sad to leave, but it was time to come home for a bit. By the time I head back later next month, that baby will have changed several times. I know many of us have grandchildren, but if you don’t, I’m here to tell you that it is something special!

After being in LA, I am so ready for spring! The Japanese maples and pear trees were in bloom, and I am looking forward to that happening in Dallas. Dressing for early spring weather can be tricky when it’s still cold outside. I knew we would have at least one night out in Los Angeles and thought I would bring this easy skirt. I consider black and white (or cream) good transition colors from winter to spring. This is a fun (and inexpensive) skirt to wear with a cashmere (my favorite one, and I have it in several colors) or cotton sweater now, then pair it with a tee or tied-up button-down when the weather gets warmer. And the skirt will work with boots, sandals, and sneakers.





I woke up to nasty rainy weather and a major headache this morning—a far cry from sunny LA. I have so much to catch up on that I don’t know where to start. One thing on my list is to tell you about an artist I love who announced his first album release today. Abraham Alexander is a Fort Worth, Texas, guy (by way of Greece) that has won the hearts of our entire family. He is very close with two of my children, and he was in LA at the same time as me and stayed at my daughter’s home with us. He was in town for Grammy installations. I promise, his voice will give you the chills! I told him that I would name him the “king of solk! His music is a cross between soul and folk and is incredibly beautiful plus, he has a heart of gold and the kindest spirit. I know he will make it big, and I wanted you to know about him early! If you live in Dallas, he is playing at the Kessler Theater this spring.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Stay well and Be safe! xx
