Good morning and welcome to a fresh week. I hope you had a good weekend! Mine was full of running (did a half marathon on Saturday to prep for the San Fransisco Marathon this fall), cooking (created a wonderful meal with friends for my running partner’s birthday), and eating (everything under the sun including two Ann Sather’s cinnamon rolls and Piece pizza).
Today I want to recap two developments. The first is a slight change in my Personal Bank Account intention for May, and the second is a Jess LC update regarding the Macy*s on State St.
Houston, we have a problem
Last night’s salad: mixed greens, tomatoes, chopped cilantro, alfalfa sprouts, herbed Chevre (goat cheese), cucumbers, and Cilantro dressing from T.Joe’s.
Despite my good intention for this month’s Personal Bank Account (PBA) deposit, I am changing course and heading in a new direction. Originally I mentioned I wanted to eat my vitamins everyday like a good little girl. But about a week into the month, it became obvious that I should find a new intention unconnected to supplements (don’t ask).
So for the remainder of May I intend to consume my vitamins and minerals in their natural state, specifically via four salads a week. I chose to eat four salads a week because it is healthy and requires me to eat slightly more veggies than I normally eat. To put things in perspective, the number of salads I consumed in 2009 before May could be counted on… one finger. So here I am on May 18th armed with bags of Arugula, baby spinach and more salad dressings than shoes in my closet. Above is a photo of last night’s salad- fresh and tasty, but I should have added croutons, nuts, or some other crunchy addition.
How has everyone else done with their PBA’s? Smooth sailing? Any snafus like mine?
Last Friday I spent most of the afternoon debuting Astor St. and the rest of the Jess LC line to Macy*s buyers for consideration in the Chicago Designer section of the State St. Macy*s. Each year they carry four to six Chicago jewelry lines in a special jewelry case and host a handful of trunk shows for local designers.
Last year I attended this event and was asked to participate in the trunk shows, but they did not place a wholesale order. Not sure what they will decide this year, but my fingers are crossed and I will update you in the next few weeks if the outcome is positive.
