FITTING DAY. Paris Fashion Week. I have a few more photos to share with you and one more share with photos of actual Paris Fashion Week: The Show!  

I started the day last month with electrolytes and ginger shots brought to me by my hubby and ended it with bubbly, all three for stamina. Ha! 😉

When things are meant to “fit” in your life, you can not stop that train (and you WILL find the gumption and stamina to get it done, and enjoy yourself throughout!). Believe it, see it and do the work (small, medium, and large actions) and to life it all comes. This goes for the designer as well as myself. 🙂

What magic to meet Jocelyn in the surprise way I did and it all clicking to support her during such a massively special week as she added Paris Fashion Week to her successes after first checking New York Fashion Week off her list.

Paris, too, is absolute magic. After just shy of two months here, I feel my creative life here coming more and more to life…

Paris Fashion Week Fitting

Paris Fashion Week Fitting

I recently attended my first fitting / behind-the-scenes of Paris Fashion Week for the Joccelyn brand! Amongst other things, I confirmed that I’m definitely the shortest person in Paris. Well, at least during Fashion Week 🙂 

The opportunity came for this Paris Fashion Week Fitting and we, not only seized it, but warmly received it!

Wow to all that my eyes saw (gorg!) and ears heard (ha!).

The B&W outfit was to show I was supporting a designer and not *in* the show, though, we can trust that, again, no one would have mistaken me for a model.

Best part? The venue was a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe. All awesome!

What are you magically working on calling into your life and warmly receiving?

Note To Parents (Letting Go)

A note on letting go (to college freshman parents – now that I have a month under my belt). Maybe all it really means is letting in a different kind of love.

And that’s actually awesome because it means that while they are in a big season of growing and changing, we are too, (it’s our time, too — to growww & change, we gotta keep up!)…

At first, things will feel hard because we’ve had a certain type of [say, young vs mature] love for the last 18 years, but really nothing fundamentally has changed…

Where they live has changed dramatically (hard) and how they decide to grow on their own has, too (so cool this learning about themselves thing; something only they can do!).

But love (the base of central importance) is a constant. You will always “have” them, and they will always “have” you.

Rest easy, parents, and find the letting go maybe a little easier by letting a different kind of love in.
