I Feel Lucky

I feel lucky:

  • I have wonderful friends and family.
  • I'm so proud of my niece and nephew!
  • My Mom is doing much better - this was a horrible year for her, but 2009 is going to be great.
  • I love my day job.
  • I moved to Washington, DC this Fall, and it was one of my best decisions.
  • My jewelry business on Etsy is doing well and I have the best customers a person could ever hope for.

I do work incredibly hard for everything - my job, my business. However, I know that my friends, family and faith also play a role in my luck.

I'm also lucky for frivolous reasons:

  • My flapper necklace made the front page of Etsy this weekend. Thanks to the lovely Amy Hatch - Ruby Rose. Her jewelry is gorgeous and very reasonably priced! I love these earrings! Wouldn't they make a great gift this holiday season?

  • I actually won something! Mom Fuse sponsored a giveway for a Land's End Cashmere Sweater, and I actually won. I wanted to get it in black, but I have a dresser full of black sweaters. So, I ordered the light emerald green. I'm actually going to wear a color. My niece and nephew will be so proud of me when they see me wearing a color other than black.
