Success Only Comes before Work in the Dictionary…

SUCCESS only comes beforeWORK in the dictionary. This is a quote Tracie and I first heardfrom our uncle. It has become another family mantra that we live along with Ain’t no given in and no given out!

Today I want to celebrate 3 friends who have also proven that the difference between try and triumph is a little umph!

Tonight,I along with 20 friends will be dining at the Kingfish Cafe at 602 19th Avenue E.I have known Leslie and Laurie the twin sisters who opened the establishment in 1997 since childhood. I can attest that over the past 14 years, they have consistently served the best homestyle southern cooking in a warm atmosphere, with great music and southern hospitality. It is the incredible work ethic that they have shown all these years that still marvels me. Yesterday they started “Happy Hour” from 4-6 and that gives me another reason to be happy about going to the Kingfish!

Hemingway once said, “I write drunk and edit sober.” Authors- I love them and I love the gift of books and how every story opens up to another world. To become a published author is an incredible feat and accomplishment and that is why this Thursday September 22 at 7 pm, I hope you all will join me at my dear friend, Susan Johnson’s debut book reading of Low Hanging Fruit at The Elliott Bay Book Company1521 10th Avenue Seattle. Susan and I have talked about writing a book for years and I am so proud that she stopped talking and did it! The coming of age story follows a 15 year old girl who moves with her mother and younger sister to the remote and rural town of Leavenworth in the wake of her parent’s divorce.

For all you Eastcoasters, next week September 30, Oct. 1 and Oct. 2- I will be in New York supporting another friend as her handbag line debuts at Henri Bendel 712 Fifth Avenue NY NY! Sabrina Love handbags are an exclusively curated selection of classic Italian leather made in the USA.

The Kingfish (Leslie and Laurie), Susan Johnson and Sabrina have all proven that while some people dream of success, others work hard and make it happen.Now go follow your dreams!
