Sharon was my “partner in crime” for many trips into Manhattan. By “crime” I mean shopping and eating – mainly cupcakes and chocolate! Lots of cupcakes and chocolate! So much fun together!
They came to visit us in Chicago on my birthday – yes, Virginia, there was Chocolate!! (Fannie Mae’s) and Cupcakes! (Sprinkle’s) We take our treats seriously.
Since our separation she has stepped out of her comfort zone in ways I would have never guessed. She is a card carrying member of the DAR, lives on Roosevelt Island – literally, Main St. NYC – takes acting classes and works as an extra, and has become an entrepreneur! She is also one of the kindest and most generous people you will ever meet. Her love for the Lord is absolutely infectious! In fact, she was the one who challenged me to read straight through the Bible for the first time. The challenge wasn’t verbal; it was from witnessing her life and how many times she had done it. People, you want this girl in your corner!
As an added bonus for you, my dear readers, I am having an online trunk show for Stella & Dot hosted by my friend Sharon. I am also having a GIVEAWAY OF A FABULOUS PIECE OF STELLA & DOT JEWELRY!! I’m excited that this is my very first giveaway and Sharon is part of that. Read a little more here:
I will be celebrating my first year as an entrepreneur with Stella & Dot and I'll be truly celebrating what a wonderful company I work for and the fun job I have!
October is a special month for Stella & Dot because we have partnered with the Noreen Fraser Foundation in supporting research for women's cancers. Last year's net proceeds for the sales of the Tribute bracelet brought in $120,000 for breast cancer research! This year there are 5 items for sale for which the net proceeds go to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.
The Stella & Dot Foundation is a permanent initiative that supports 3 charities for women and children. This fall Stella & Dot has premiered its new Foundation bracelets! They are so pretty and cute!
The new holiday collection has finally arrived! The Courage, Light and Love bracelets are so adorable and only $19! These would make great gifts for teachers, friends, dog walkers, anyone! There is truly something lovely for every budget.
Now for the exciting part: I will be giving away a Light bracelet to one lucky reader. All you have to do is leave a comment about which piece of fabulousness from the show catches your eye. No need to purchase anything to be eligible. The deadline for entry and ordering is October 30, 2012.
