Keepin' it Cool

Hi Peeps!

I've missed posting.  I've missed your blogs.  I've missed keeping in touch through comments.  The holidays are always busy, yet I hope to hop online to blog a bit (I know, same old shpeal) - but I'm gonna really try.

Looking forward to a little getaway soon and I'll have some fun things to share along with new products for the Etsy shop- stay tuned.

In the meantime, just finishing up some S&S orders before a quick vacay.  Working with a sweet, sweet Maui Bride Brigit.  Loving her style and colors, makes my job much easier when the client has a clear vision of what they want.

Hope everyone is well!

Chuggin' Along

D had to remind me nicely that "Movember" is for dudes to grow out their staches, not for women to grow their leg hair. Oooooops.  Life's busy.... what can I say?

Dang, the holidays are creepin' big time!  Going out anywhere now in public is a huge "in your face" reminder of it.  Life continues to be so busy- I just realized that maybe I should get on the ball and prepare a bit more.  I haven't even ordered our Christmas cards yet (yes, the girl who coordinates handmade envelope liners and strategically chooses just the right envelopes and return address stamp ink).  What is my problem this year?  This time of year tends to put me in a more laid back mood, even though there are always just as many things to get done, if not more.

Time to get that extra drive kickin.

Travel-Wear Inspiration

What vacations have you taken this year?

I'm SO ready for a vacation.  Besides taking a super quick few days out to Colorado this past Summer, D and I haven't taken a vacation this year.  I'm a huge believer in taking time away- to relax, rejuvenate, to find a balance, to regain faith, to splurge on yourself, to be grateful, and of course to drink coffee everyday after sleeping in and possibly have a few days with no set agenda.

Sadly we don't have a long vacation planned, yet we are looking forward to a long weekend in San Fran next month.  I can't wait to roam around the city, eat delicious carbs, bundle up in a pea coat and boots and sip hot drinks all day.  We've also got a 49ers game to attend which will be my very first live NFL game EVER!  Pretty.darn.excited.

I'm most definitely revving up for the City by the Bay and if money was no object, I'd have all these travel goodies and wardrobe items ( a girl can wish):
vintage suede travel bag via Etsy
winter coat via Emerson Fry
Lace and Fur ear muffs via Etsy
