Greetings, dear ladies! As we enter the last 1.5 months of the year, I wanted this post to be at the top for a while until I get situated and can give you more details. I’ll be posting our updated family photos here, too, when they’re done!
In the way of an update…
Life & Family
We’re excited to be experiencing the most laid back November we’ve had…ever! My husband and I met on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving in 2001 when his sister insisted I spend the weekend with her family and meet her brother. We went back in 2002 a married couple! In 2005 I missed it because I was past my due date with our first son. In the years since, there have been more people every year as the siblings married and had kids. Thanksgiving is so much fun.
Last year in November I was in a wedding, we had family in town, I helped plan a big joint birthday party, my mom turned 70 and we hosted Thanksgiving for 30+ people. It was…full. And hectic.
This year our son turns 15 on Thanksgiving day and our celebration will be just the five of us. I’m looking forward to a slow day, birthday pie and a quiet evening instead of the stress and chaos of years past. It will be strange to be just us but everyone had other plans anyway so it was a good year to take a breather. (breathing is great, I highly recommend it)
I’m turning 43 on November 29th! Send cards and gifts to our mailing address (seriously, I’d love to receive a card from you!): 2925 E Riggs Rd Chandler, AZ 85249. I’ll probably plan a shopping/lunch day and/or a trip to my favorite arboretum. If you’re local to Phoenix, you’re invited!
My husband (Drew Dumas, Realtor) has been a full time Realtor for four years now (he quit his job in October 2016 and we found out we were pregnant with Kate three months later–God’s timing, huh?) and this year has been phenomenal, in spite of the “pandemic.” To be honest, this time last year we were considering giving it up and were questioning whether God really even called us to it. 2020 has been a year of huge growth and two house flips. For now we’re recovering, taking time to regroup, and intentionally pursuing God’s next steps for us. We do hope to upgrade to a larger home in 2021 but for now we’re making the most of what we have.
As for Signature Color Style, I am at max capacity as a wife, mom and homemaker and have no plans for expanding or adding services in 2021. I also decided to give up my home office/studio to give my son his own room as well as a space to spend time with cousins and friends so I’m no longer offering in-person color analysis in my home. I can bring it to your group or event, though!
Through the end of the year I won’t be doing any marketing and will be mostly off social media except for my Facebook Insiders group here. I am looking forward to teaming up with people for workshops and vision board parties for the foreseeable future.

For me, I love to live a vibrant, creative, inspired life…and share it with others! Rather than a complicated sales funnel or paid membership or any sort of program or coaching, I’m just going to share my day to day life, favorite books and businesses, spiritual ponderings, etc. via a specific email list.
I plan to hit on the barriers to purpose I’ve seen over the years and help my ladies overcome them! I also hope those can be compiled into a book soon…so it will be like getting a sneak peek!
I love helping women dress so that they are free to live their purpose. This endeavor is more the purpose side and I hope you’ll join me.
Local ladies will also have options for field trips and gatherings. I will offer as much as I can virtually, too! Keep an eye on my events page for the info.
Stay tuned for more!
