So seriously, are we all maintaining our sanity in the run up to Christmas? I surely hope so! I consider myself lucky in that I have 3 full-blown millennials who are not obsessed with wanting some particular “thing.” (Remember Furbies…XGames…Lego…phew.) So now I have fun searching out cool stocking stuffers (skull ice cube trays, beer’d wash, can’t disclose more!), and then we write them a check to help them on their way however they need and choose. We trust that they’ll make good decisions, maybe even put some away in a savings account. So…in the name of last minute Christmas suggestions, here’s a post with some millennial vetted gift suggestions!

Did you ever read a “Series of Unfortunate Events” with your kids? It’s a multi-book collection about three orphans who survive one calamity after another. While the past 10 days for me haven’t been that dramatic, they have been pretty stressful. I took on probably one too many freelance writing projects, am rehabbing from a bout of Sciatica, threw out my iPhone adapter (Why, Apple?!?), and had to undergo a pretty invasive medical procedure (fingers crossed on that one!). So…looking to rainbows, and wearing them, made me feel more hopeful, more confident, more happy.

I was proud of my ability to multi-task (hah!) and earn some serious cash but also quite often overwhelmed and exhausted and putting myself last.
She’s a Rainbow
This week my “day job” has been busier than expected so blog posting was put on the back burner. I’m so happy to be back! Even though you won’t see me in any of these colorful choices, my fashion heart and soul is all in.
