November, 2007

Greetings!

How is Autumn treating you so far?   We’ve made the transition into Fall a busy one indeed.  The full plate we’ve just devoured includes our new Spring 2008 collection, photo shoot, our first trade show, and selling, selling, selling!  I must admit, although I adore the heat waves of summer, I find this season to be the most visually stimulating of them all.  Everything from the hot-toned leaves, beautiful sunsets, and holiday decor has me staring out the window in appreciation.  Speaking of which, I’d like to dip my pen (or tap my keys) into the flavor of the month by listing a few things I personally am grateful for…

  • Awakening to the sound of glass breaking – which signaled our dynamic duo’s first attempt at breakfast-in-bed for mommy & daddy (gotta love ’em)
  • Good drumming & the friends born of it – this is my 20th year of doing African dance
  • Grandparents pride – the delight in the faces of both my kids and their 3 grands every time they are together warms my heart and makes all that spoiling sooo worth it!
  • Ear-piercing cries of “Daddy’s home” – hiding the fact that I’m just as excited because the man I married is incredibly beautiful, hard-headed & loved

What obscure things are you giving thanks for this season?

Going Green

YR is committed to learning sustainable practices in business & daily life. Each month we will include an easy to incorporate tip to assist with Going Green. I know the holiday season is keeping us all busy, so here are 3 quick tips in 45 seconds… 45, 44, 43

  1. Annually, 100 million trees are used to make junk mail. DirectMail.com is a free, quick way to get your name off commercial mailing lists.
  2. Like to save on CO2 emissions and fuel (Every gallon of gas burned produces 19 lbs of CO2)?  Stop idling, if waiting for more than 10 seconds, you’re better off restarting.  Obey the speed limit & drive less aggressively, flooring it just wastes gas.
  3. Switch 1 household cleaner to something non-toxic.  Vinegar diluted with 25% water, works wonders on mirrors and windows! 

Need a break?  Take this hilarious little quiz to see just how GREEN you really are 😉
