    It was 72 F one day last week, 36 F the next. Trees and shrubs are flowering, as are pines. So, we all stripped down to shorts and flip-flops the first day, and sneezed from allergies. We bundled up in layers of wool the next, and nursed our head colds.

    “Taking joy in living is a woman’s best cosmetic.” Love this quote, and it’s so true. When walking down the street, it’s joie de vivre that makes me smile–sometimes reflected in fashion/style, sometimes not.

    We can’t be happy all of the time, but there is almost always joy to be found somewhere: a funky cloud, a wisp of music from a passing car, that man’s red sneakers, the smell of spring. What makes you beautiful? Why, you of course!
