Boston: Home of the Brave
It was hard to smile today as my heart is still heavy from the tragic events that played out on Monday. What was once solely known as such a historical and prestigious day will be tarnished with the senseless acts that took lives, injured so many and put an entire city in a state of panic. I hope that the perpetrators are found and brought to justice.
My heart goes out to those that were affected or have loved ones that were affected.
Tomorrow we’re supposed to get a substantial snowfall. I’m not looking forward to wearing my snow gear. I’m praying that the meteorologists flubbed on their predictions and it won’t be so bad. I think snow is pretty to look at initially and then it becomes a slushy mess. Yuck. Mother Nature has been kind to us so I guess we are overdue for snow. Today, I embraced the clean, visible sidewalks, and overall decent weather by wearing these over the knee brown leather boots and this cute orange and chocolate combination. I wish I got a close up of this top. It’s navy blue and white. It has ruffles going down the front of the shirt but this dress only reveals the ruffles at the top. So cute!

I was so happy to see all the support being given to the troops, nobly defending and honoring our country. I am so gracious for their sacrifices.
Around town they had so many events to show support. While strolling through the Copley Mall I observed a station setup for
folks to write holiday cards to the troops. What a great way to boost morale…There was also Boston’s annual Veteran’s Day parade. I also learned about Trees for Troops. Individuals can buy trees that will be donated to military families. Learn more here: www.mahoneysgarden.com.
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend and do something to support our troops.

I’m coming back down to reality after a spectacular birthday weekend. I partied! – Maybe a little too hard but it was my birthday. I’m refreshed today and ready for the week ahead.
I’ve been seeing a lot of girls wear ankle booties with skirts and dresses and decided to try the look for myself. This top is from American Eagle. It was a steal at only $4. Yes $4. I bought these booties from a shop in NY. Between all the street vendors and neat shops I can always find something great there. There is sometimes a stigma associated with hitting up the sales racks but I think sales are awesome. Without them I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have as much clothing as I do. Since it’s the end of the summer season you can find great sales at your local retailers.
Last week I mentioned this local up and coming jewelry designer. You can learn more about it at http://www.thechictherapy.bigcartel.com/.This wonderful necklace I’m wearing in this photo is from her line. The button earrings I wore last week are also from there.
I want to send a very special Happy Birthday message to my sister! It was great spending time with you on my bday and helping you celebrate yours over the weekend.
