Soft Surroundings: Visibility And A Giveaway!

Make Me Smile!  Yes, I am one of those who really love a
rainy afternoon…maybe because we do not have that many in San Antonio!  But, I do realize that the weather this
spring is very dangerous and I hope all of you are safe!  I grew up in Tornado Alley and know how
nerve wracking it can be.
We are three days away from the official beginning of the two
week party in San Antonio called FIESTA!  A tradition for over 120 years, FIESTA shows our multi-cultural city at
its best!  I hope to cover more events
for you this year.  Every year, the
ladies who oversee FIESTA have a ceremony where they hang a rain rock to ward
off bad weather for two weeks.  I guess
it makes them feel better…we were in a severe drought last year, so, of course,
the rock worked…I do not know if it will help this year.  Those who would rather have the water
replenished than parades and parties always scoff at the hanging of the rock!
Aside from rain rock, good fortune
raining down on the readers of this blog and it comes from a wonderful
company, Soft Surroundings. If you spend just a few moments on their website,
you will see how beautiful the clothes in their line really are…soft,
stylish, comfortable, sexy, and gorgeous. 
Their company philosophy is something I can buy into.  From their site:
Soft Surroundings is dedicated to making you look and feel your best.
Our first catalog mailed July 19, 1999. We are based in St. Louis, Mo.
Busy women of all
ages are our customers – especially those who need to be reminded to put
themselves at the top of their “To Do List.” Our philosophy is that
by putting yourself first, you can take better care of friends and family and
hopefully live a happier, more fulfilling life.
We design the
majority of our quality fashion and bedding here in St. Louis. Our goal is to
ensure that our customers maintain their unique sense of style without
sacrificing comfort and to do whatever we can to help you relax into a good
night’s sleep.
