Dreams, Milestones and the Celebration of Friends
Today is as good a day as any to manifest some dreams.
I awoke this morning out of a dream about the realization of dreams and immediately thanked God for the ability to dream and then I thanked him for YOU. You see my dream was a window into yours and with that I know there is always a door—an opportunity if you will and a will to explore. There was the very stylish, smell-good mother in my church who has always wanted to open a boutique (I saw it with fantastic bolts of cobalt blue fabric and nothing on any Parisian street could compare). Her dreams linked seamlessly as dreams are wont to do to my mother’s secretly shared vision for a “shop” back home called “Pins & Things” (she’s so cute) and then I saw his dinner theater come into fruition. It was all there for the taking, but I know firsthand how easy it is to backburner dreams, make excuses and place them on a shelf–a place where no dreams has ever thrived, much less arrived.
The following passion-preneurs (love that hyphenated bit of loveliness) have all tapped into their dreams and are marking milestones. They are each one:
- LIVING and breathing their art and inviting you to sample and share in that passionate fruit and,
- Making BOLD strides into their own dreamscapes by giving them a more expansive public voice and platform
Brianna McCarthy & Her Girls!
The artist, the woman, the passion fruit lover (yes and still very much my girl crush out of Trinidad) is having her very 1st ever sample sale running through this weekend. Yay!

Melissa Stillman is Living a Lucky Life!
“Until finally, we come to the sweet, often quiet ones…” That little quote describes my friend and fellow writer, Melissa Stillman quite aptly. You’ve read her right here and you should also know she is a consultant and a cohort in some pivotal things DASHEEN and all things girly.
Melissa is ready to lay claim to her dream of becoming a freelance Beauty/Fashion/Lifestyle Editor. She has entered The Search for the New Lucky Lifestyle Contributor!
The following was a slice of her INVITATION to friends (and you):
A magazine I’ve been reading since it launched in 2000–Lucky–is having a contest to find their next (freelance) lifestyle contributor. Winning would be a dream come true!
As you have time this week, would you please click on the link below to view my entry and vote for it? The number of votes I have plays into whether I’ll make it to the next round. The girl in the lead has 450 votes–help me catch up by casting your vote and inviting friends to this voting “party.”
You do have to complete a two-screen registration in order to vote, but it would mean so much to me. Thank you!
Voting ends Friday at 11:59 p.m.
The things I love about Melissa in this challenge:
1. She is so herself on the page and for me that makes her ACCESSIBLE
2. I absolutely learned something about entertaining and being a hostess which makes her INSPIRING, and
3. Win or win, she is absolutely living a LUCKY LIFE and I for one can’t wait to read all about it in a forthcoming blog, mystery novel, and/or Lucky Magazine near you.
I invite you to read the article that brought this photo to light and if you believe in dreams, cheer Melissa on with your vote!
Go Melissa, GO!
