In the event that you haven’t by any chance read the book The Help or seen the movie by the same name, then I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce both Silver Lining experiences to you! I am hopeful that you will enjoy them as much as I have!
The farmer’s market is full of beets these days. I used to think that beets were gross. A couple of years ago, however, I fell in L-O-V-E with them. Full on love. Beets are a popular garden vegetable for two reasons – they are fairly easy to grow and just about the… Continue reading Friday's Fixin's: Beautiful Beets
A friend recently asked if I was super excited to get out of San Francisco….to be DONE with my breast cancer treatments. Actually, I must separate the two. I’m ready to be DONE with treatment; however, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with San Francisco (a BIG Silver Lining)!
Juicing has never been my favorite thing. There. I said it. I’ve always perceived it to be tedious, messy and (especially for all of the work) not so tasty. Since my breast cancer diagnosis, however, I’m much more open to shedding preconceived notions!

Today is the day of my “dry run” of radiation for breast cancer. My nerves are on high alert; however, the Silver Linings continue to appear.
Jules Allen is one of those people who, if she weren’t so darn nice, a girl could really be snarky about her because she is gorgeous, talented, fun, loyal, energetic, and oh so sweet (and itty-bitty!). She designs my favorite cashmere line, Jules Allen Cashmere. I wear her cashmere all the time because it is… Continue reading Fashion SL's: Jules Allen Cashmere
Now that my chemo is DONE and my port-a-cath is OUT, it’s time to begin the Road to Radiation. Silver Lining: this is the LAST part of my treatment regimen. Yippeeee-do!
