All by myself . . . don't wanna be . . . all by myself.
So, I had a great time with Leslie, then Sheila. Completely blew my plans for a blog a day, but I hope you understand. I hadn't seen Leslie in 5 years; it had been 2 years since Sheila and I spent time together. We had a lot of fun, talked endlessly and solved each other's problems.
Two more days until I grab the kids at the Nashville Airport. They're having a great time with Mimi, Granddad, Aunt Nikki, Uncle Bill and cousins. I miss them terribly.
Every time I'm with Sheila, she does so much to inspire and motivate me. I wish I could put her in my pocket! I've got lots of ideas for the shop. Some big moves, some new markdowns, some new inventory. Stay tuned for updates.
So, are you loving our weather? This has to be the most beautiful July on the books. What are you doing to make the most of it? I'm trying to spend as much time as possible outside. Sheila and I enjoyed and afternoon of conversation and light dining on Sunday. She made an incredible watermelon salad: She chopped up about 1/4 of a watermelon, crumbled 2 ozs. of goat cheese and and tossed them together. She then added 1 tsp. of toasted black sesame seeds; sprinkled the mixture with some balsamic vinegar and, I think, a little honey. OH MY GOSH! I'm jonesin' for this salad!
