One one thing, this week I have been given the privilege of working with the best-in-the-world image consultants at the House of Colour headquarters in Croxley, England. It is stretching me and growing me in ways I haven't pushed myself in a long while. I have been overwhelmed more times than I like to think about this week, but I have had to be very brave and just try to keep growing and learning. At the end of the first week of my training, I know I have trained my eyes and learned skills that I didn't have before. When I bottomed out on my flight around the Pond, dear friend Lisa Beier told me in a text "Enjoy yourself - this is a once in a lifetime experience! You're so cool for doing this, so start acting like it!!" These were my marching orders for being brave. Her words helped me to be brave when I felt like withering.
THEN, at the end of an exhausting first week of training, I did another very brave thing. I let one of my fellow trainees drop me off at the Watford Junction train station, and I caught three different trains to take me to Grateley (near Salisbury) --- ALL BY MYSELF. Did you catch that? I had to switch trains twice and I did it! CM friend & team member Jennifer Keller picked me up at the station and drove me to their home in Nether Wallop where I am being refreshed by this darling family and the English countryside over the weekend.

More to come about the Kellers, my adventures in Salibury and today's walk around Nether Wallop... stay tuned.
