What I loved the most about all of them was that whether they began down their path to success at their kitchen table (Tory) or because they were fired (Donna) or sold it all and started again (Diane) or worked for 20 years with one company to get where they are (Jenna)... they all had their each and own special path to success. No where did they follow in others' footsteps or did success knock on their door and ask them to be friends. They created their life as they went along.
I think all women need amazing inspiration in the form of older and wiser women. Sure, the "youngin's" are inspirational too... but I find that the older I get the more likely I am to feel like this train is slowing down... and not like it's speeding up. Really, it is whatever speed we make for ourselves.
[I swear I took a bazillion pictures... I was so excited to wear/photograph this silk blazer I got on super sale from JCrew but this is the best I could pull from all those pictures - mildly frustrating, can I blame it on motherhood?]
It's nice to know while I whip around town dropping kids here and there, putting dinner on the table late because I was busy with this or that and getting caught up in the craziness that whirls around life with young children in general... that as long as I am creating my own story - I will have one.
That was my mom "rant" for the week! It has nothing to do with this outfit... just stuff on my mind. What's on your mind? :)
