Style Scouting: Vol. 74

How was your week? Mine moved at a slower, more relaxed pace which felt nice after the holidays.

Now I am off and on my way to Los Angeles for two weeks to help my daughter and SIL with my granddaughter’s care.

Before I head out, I wanted to make sure to get this week’s Style Scouting post up. I hope you find a few inspiring ideas.

  3. Ha! So funny to see the Mother/daughter post about the wingman website looking for a date for the daughter. I also saw that and sent off a quick text to my 31 yr. old single son. I’m just another mom trying to play wingman for her son! He got a kick out of it, but not sure if it will go anywhere. Sometimes they just have to do things on their own.

You gave us something fresh and new every week. Thank you for your continued work on your blog all while every cell in your body is focused on your granddaughter’s health. We appreciate you!

  9. Thank you for such inspiring posts. I have given up on so much social media but continue to find your so worthwhile. You always inspire me to live a better life. I especially appreciate your WFPB posts. Love and prayers for you and Zoe. My prayers continue for you both. I often think of that long trip across the country as I did it for 11 years but in a much less crazy time.
