Which made me muse about money and how it eases life. It doesn't bring happiness, but it sure helps it when things become inconvenient.
Vegas is better with a husband in tow, especially at high pressure networking conferences. I felt less pressure to find where the "cool" kids were hanging, and I just let conversations and relationships happen.
People in Vegas dress super dressy, and there is a lot of sequins and glitter, and guys wear suits. I brought a bunch of my sequin tops but I don't like wearing them because they scratch my arms and they're not comfortable. So I made a lot of choices leaning to comfort, and was mentioning to Andy and my friends that my purse was my only attempt to be stylish, and a friend told Andy: "She constantly underrates herself!" And another friend said: "I wanted to steal all her dresses!"
And I had a realization that I could be comfortable and stylish in my own way and I don't need to use Rent the Runway dresses and uncomfortable sequins to look good.
Yay for high school epiphany moment :)
