Happy March to you! We are loving the sunny, breezy, spring-like weather in Northern California. I hope you are finding some sunshine where you are this week. This is a peek out my office window. Thankfully it’s beautiful out since I have been spending lots of time in my office this week.
It’s always fun to check in with you in real time. I’m excited to introduce you to my newly updated Style*Mind*Chic Life website! It’s been busy behind the scenes and it feels good to refresh and update — a bit of spring cleaning for the website. As all bloggers know, websites can be glitchy sometimes. At one point all the comments from my blog were showing up as emails rather than on the blog posts themselves. Thank you for the comments, and emails, by the way!
We are still working out a few kinks behind the scenes, but I hope you enjoy the fresh, new format. Look for more travel and lifestyle posts and an expanded CURATED TRAVEL SERVICES section in the coming months. The comment section is at the bottom of the post. It should be working correctly now. I have a new Shop The Look Section with some fun pieces based on the theme of the posts.
As for local news, cheers to the safe repairs for our local, and newly internationally famous, Oroville dam. It’s an understatement to say there were several days and nights of deep concern over the failure of the dam for us here in Butte County. I still cannot believe how quickly 188,000 locals were evacuated within a few hours. Before my retirement last July, I worked in Oroville, in an office in the path of that dam, for almost 16 years. I was always worried about an earthquake taking it out. I’m so relieved for friends, colleagues, students and their families that continue to live and work in nearby Oroville. The dam is being repaired and we are all breathing easier around here these days.
