Wow! Not quite sure what to say about this photo except wow, wow and WOW! Growing up in East Texas I thought I had seen it all when it came to COUNTRY until I came across this photo on the internet today. I was doing some research trying to get some inspiration for my new Spring 2013 Katydid line and I'm not quite sure this is the inspiration I was looking for!
Just had to share....'Nuff said.

Today I am going to share a little story…of the “I can’t believe I did that, but I am so glad I did” variety. So, I’m a big Dallas Mavericks fan and have always admired owner Mark Cuban. As an entrepreneur, I find his story very inspiring. (Have any of you watched Shark Tank? I’m a big, big fan.) Last February, Dallas hosted the Super Bowl, and I had heard that Mark Cuban was hosting an invite-only party – the type celebs and VIPs go to, and maybe you see some photos in US Weekly the next week. Let’s just say the kind of Super Bowl party I am usually invited to is the kind where I show up with cool ranch dip…not a soiree.
But for some reason, I set my sights on this party and decided to email Mark Cuban and explain why he should give me tickets to his party. Seriously…who does that?! But I did…and friends, it worked! After telling him a little about myself and my company, he not only gave me tickets, he emailed me back congratulating me on my success. I was over the MOON! The party was a blast, and I even got up the nerve to introduce myself in person to Mark, which was the best! (He – by the way – was super nice and congratulated me again, remembering “Katydid” before I could even remind him of who in the world I was.)
The point of my story is that sometimes, you just have to GO FOR IT. There is no reason that I should have expected my email to work, but I wanted something and I went for it. Sometimes, you just have to ask…what have I got to lose?! I would have missed out on a really cool experience if I’d let nerves or pride or a “this will never happen, why try?” attitude get in the way. It doesn’t always work out, but sometimes it does, and you get to say you went to the same party as Usher. Ha! It’s true.
So…I encourage each of you to do something just a little bit brave or out of the ordinary this week. If you’ve already got your own “I can’t believe I did that, but I am so glad I did” story, I would so love to hear about it! And if you don’t, go create that experience…that story…and then [...]

Today I’m thinking pink…not baby pink or bubble gum pink…not even hot pink (a personal favorite). Today I am thinking of POWER PINK. Or rather the power of pink. For those familiar with Katydid Collection, you know we are big supporters of breast cancer research and awareness. I think it’s pretty awesome that the cause of breast cancer awareness and prevention has transformed such a lovely color into such a force. I’m so thankful that the color is a reminder that there is an ongoing fight…one that is very real…one that will impact every one of us if it hasn’t already – if not personally, through a friend, family member or coworker.
In creating pink ribbon tees each year, I’m not only excited to financially support the cause – I feel a true kinship…all those who buy the tees (or otherwise support breast cancer awareness and prevention), we’re on the same team. We’ve all been touched in some way and are working toward a common cause – fighting the disease, speaking out, supporting research for a cure – and there’s something very powerful in that. Feeling connected to total strangers through a tee shirt…that shirt meaning something very special and different to each one of us.
I’ll be honest; pink – in all its power – is for me a beautiful, but bittersweet reminder these days. My Aunt Jean passed away last year after her fight against breast cancer. She was always an inspiration to me, and she remains so. It’s with her in mind, I’m thinking pink today. What about you – who or what makes you think pink?
