It’s a new year! Full of hope, promise and new beginnings. The year is a journey of possibilities, in work, romance, socially and with the city itself. An endless stream of occurrences and new experiences waiting to happen. It will be like all the other years, with ups and downs and who we are intrinsically will remain the same. However, the choices we make, how we handle the situations we encounter, will play a huge part in how the year unfolds.
Gracefully navigating the scenarios that life throws at us is a challenge we must accept. It’s not always easy but being able to dance through the obstacles with deft social finesse brings a certain confidence and great satisfaction.
I dream of a kinder gentler world swathed in a silky veil of civility. I know… dream on honey! But I can’t help it. So I am extending an invitation to all of you for a dialogue with me. Tell me your etiquette gripes and social conundrums so we can navigate life’s social mine fields with style, grace and finesse.
Weather it’s attending or hosting an event, preparing for a date, or meeting your future ex-mother in law, lay it on me. I want to help. Whatever your question, I guarantee that someone else has the same question. So don’t be shy.
I write about the modern urban lifestyle and how to navigate the social scenarios that arise with it. I provide answers and insights to etiquette questions. Taking a modern approach to etiquette, protocol and civility are important.
Weather you want to gripe about Hanukkah candles being lit too early, vent about some breeder running you over with her stroller, a date gone awful, or simply going to meet the Queen. Let’s talk. And if you are hosting or invited to a wedding, baby shower, Bar Mitzvah or sunday brunch. let’s make sure your at your most gracious self.
My dear readers,
May this year bring you all that your heart desires,
Happy New Year!
