But this year we caught her early.
So here we go.
I'll admit up front that my sartorial comments will be lacking, but in the optimistic spirit of the entire project, will occasionally give it a try.
Helen starts off with a simple black dress, adding a welcome dash of color in a turquoise shrug and matching sandals. It's a beautiful day today, with highs in the low 80s, but the office can be a bit chilly when the AC blows, so Helen is prepared for inside and out.
(I should add that we decided to run with this project at the last minute today, and Helen has responded admirably to our desperate attempts to have her enliven our workdays.)
