Its Just The Beginning

I think summer is making its way to AZ fast this year. I was at the Grandkids softball games today and it was so hot. The kind where you really dont feel so well and you know you got over heated.  So I just moved indoors to A/C! My friend Pat and I had appointments at Sephora for make overs. It was alot of fun, but I look a little too fancy! lol.  I did find this cute bug ring for 50 percent off and thought that she was pretty fancy too.

I have been working very hard researching all kinds of information on my new business venture.  So far I am still liking the name Bella Events. For the cafe area I am going with a little bit of an Italian flavor. I love happy colors and like muted tangerines, butter yellows and raspberry pinks. I have been collecting a few things I think will be perfect. I love dishes, serving trays and display plates. Here are a few that I have found.  I need to start fabric shopping and sewing chair cover and table cloths and runners.  Its just the beginning.  I am really enjoying this.

Have a pretty week and do something you love! I came to the realization this week that I have been working in Call Centers for the past 20 years, and I HATE it.  I am thankful to have a job, but what an Aha moment. 20 years is a very long time and a huge chunk of my adult life doing something I disliked so much.  Its paid the bills, helped me to raise my daughters and I have met some wonderful friends that mean the world to me. So there is always good, but at 52, its my time. Time to do what I love and go for it. So stay tuned, I will be sharing along the way. Pass on things I am learning and hopeful will be of some help to someone else.

Hi there Gail!

I just love that bug ring! And I normally don't like bugs at The colors are so pretty. I can feel the excitement in your post regarding your new venture. I would be too. Alot of work,but so worth it. Oh and those plates with the dresses on them are so cute! I want one! So happy that the sun is finally hitting AZ. After such a long winter I am sure you don't mind. Have a great week Pinkie. It was fun visiting you. xxoo
