I was in Hendersonville yesterday picking up doggie meds for our old girl Sable:
Heard through the grapevine (aka Facebook) today that King of Pops provided some of his awesomeness on a stick to the guests at the BIG Charleston wedding last weekend . If your next question was “What wedding?” then go here. Check out the Popsicle sticks on his Facebook page.
I’m playing around with a new slogan for Gap Creek Gourmet business marketing stuff: i bite. What do you think? Yes? No?
I went to a FemCity Greenville luncheon today – professional women getting together to network and chat. PR girl extraordinaire, Taryn Scher, is the president so I thought I would give it a whirl. Taryn has AMAZING taste in footwear. Always.
I met some crazy cool people including Starr Hammond from Rely Local Greenville. She coordinates the local cash mobs. Super nice to meet cha girl! And I met Lindsey Holder, a fellow blogger and “the savvy assistant”. She used to be a celebrity assistant. I’ll be picking her brain one day over coffee. You know that’s coming! Think I found a new buddy. Just sayin’. And the “ista” t-shirt woman was in the house. Yours truly was a featured blogger on the “What’s your ista?” site this week as a Baconista! That was WAY cool so it was nice to meet her in person. (Still holding out hope she’ll toss a Baconista T my way.)
Kim Petrie, author a little modern fairy tale for grown-up girls called The Enchanged Truth (coming out this week) was the guest speaker today. She said some amazing things I wanted to share with the class.
“There is value in failure. It refines you.”
Sister! Ain’t that the truth. I can’t tell you how many times I have failed at something…something even so small and it has given me clarity. I HATE to fail at something, but if we didn’t fail sometimes we wouldn’t get the lesson.
On finding yourself, she said,”If you found her in college, she isn’t around anymore.” How powerful right? How many women and men do you know who were totally the shit in college or even their twenties but walk around as a thirty, forty-something and beyond looking like they need a map or something? Figuring out who we are and what we need to make us happy is a life long journey. You can’t hang up the keys and coast!
Ms. Petrie is a rock star in my book.
This is what I had for dinner.
