|Payless Shoes....Very Comfortable!|
I’m reading a new book, Gracefully Looking and Being Your Best at Any Age, by Valerie Ramsey. I hope to be able to glean some wisdom from it and share it here soon. Valerie raised six children, entered the corporate world in her fifties, and became a fashion model at 68!
Susan Lucci of All My Children fame wrote the FORWARD and some of my favorite quotes are:
“We are not meant to live our lives bathed in fear and doubt.”
“Whether you are in your twenties or sixties or nineties, my conviction is to never believe, think, or act as though you are old.”
“Valerie, like me, believes that by staying physically, mentally, and spiritually fit, we are better prepared for our own individual adventure.”
“Valerie’s message on the pages of this book will inspire you to live life without limitations. Everyone has a dream, and it doesn’t have to be about acting or modeling. It is about what makes you as an individual whole and happy.”

SOMETHING DIFFERENT FRIDAY:
If you don’t know by now, I am very proud to be a born and bred Texan. So, for something different today, I wanted to share with you a few pictures from our majestic Texas Hill Country… where springtime is the best time to stop by! The entire hill country area includes charming little towns sprinkled throughout rolling hillsides and shimmering lakes found around and about Austin and San Antonio.
During spring, the wildflowers really put on show and this year is especially sweet, since we are coming out of a long drought with little vegetation around.
Every Texan has their favorite hill country village. Mine is Fredericksburg with its German influences, vineyards, small town charm, and great boutique shopping. I think my favorite wedding anniversary was spent in a Bed & Breakfast there…it is the only time we spent the night and actually had two days in town.
My husband and sons join Willie Nelson with a love for Luckenbach,TX…it has become a mecca for country music/blue grass festivals….but, for me??...I need fun shopping and cute restaurants!!
I hope you enjoyed a small peek into the countryside.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND TO ALL OF YOU!
