But, of course, no one does blue and white quite like Mother Nature. Wherever you are today, wishing you blue and white skies–and, if you’re really, really lucky, blue water too!

I’m in beautiful Litchfield Beach, SC today speaking at the Litchfield Books Moveable Feast Literary Luncheon–one of my favorite events–and then speaking to the Federation of South Carolina Women’s Clubs tonight. Tomorrow I’ll be in the Holy City, Charleston, SC, for a fabulous luncheon at High Cotton to help raise funds for the South Carolina Reading Partners, which promotes one of my favorite causes: literacy. If you’re in the area, join us! Happy weekend!

______________________________________

We can never start the new year without thinking about health and fitness and this year is no exception.  I’m thinking about purchasing some new shoes and I’ve heard great things about these running shoes, even if my “running” is just a brisk walk. I’ve had these for several years, and just thought I’d try something different.  I need a few new workout pieces and this jacket would work over any outfit, but I’m loving this color.  These shirts are perfect for my morning “run” and on those unseasonably warm mornings at the beach, I’m thinking about this.  These pants are my “go to”.  Do you have a favorite workout brand?  We’d love to know!
