Morning Coffee

I’m just back from a few events in TX and NC … You should know, my husband is awesome about keeping the kids alive while I am gone.  Like clockwork, when I roll back to Fargo, we need groceries. On the list was coffee (and that could be a disaster) … so clearly a grocery run was a priority. Shopping done; I offered myself a special treat – a quick stop at Starbucks. I was going to hit the drive through – but the line was ridiculous and my order is a simple brewed coffee (with milk or cream) – and there was no telling the complexity of the orders in all of those cars ahead of me, so I opted to run inside …where I found all sorts of grumpy people waiting for their order. (Surprised at the amount of people in line on a random Thursday at 9:30am…is this normal??) I placed my order and the Barista gave me the three options of the ‘brew of the day’ and I just picked one (randomly). She poured it up, added a splash of milk then went to ring it up. She looked at me and asked what the brew was again… and I had to be honest and let her know that I like all their coffee and I just picked one – didn’t really remember which one it was. She started to laugh. Apparently most people aren’t as random with their coffee drinks as I am. She told me that the store had been crazy – and that she really appreciated that I was such an easy-going customer....

It’s going to be a Best Day Ever in Morganton, NC!

Over the past month, I have been working on two messages that I am so excited to present at the upcoming Life, Leadership & Laughter conference in Morganton, North Carolina. Just imagine: A room full of women who are looking to build their personal and professional goals An event that has been planned to encourage each to explore new paths For all to embrace their genuine leadership skills Encouraging everyone to celebrate the many milestones reached & reminding how to have the Best Day Ever in our Awesome + Ordinary + Messy + Busy and Beautiful Life I can’t wait to meet the team at Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge in person who have pulled this event together. They are genuine leaders and I am certain they are ready to have the Best Day Ever on October 27 – which happens to be MY BIRTHDAY…how perfect is that? Cheers to a day filled with laughter and discovery through sharing stories and celebrating with new...
