that was quick

Is it me or was 2012 the fastest year ever? Selling a house. Moving not once but twice. Changing my job. New babies in the world. To quote a favorite movie:
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Here's to the new year and to not missing a thing. Happy 2013 everyone!

over the river and through the snow

We won't be going through any rivers as we travel to the ocean for the holidays but there is a bit of snow as we head out of town. We were in Paris last year for the holidays and this year is even better...Christmas with Ruby,Eleanor, and the entire Benson family  in Santa Barbara! Have a Merry Merry and see you in 2013!
ps. for those that were curious...the fur sold for what I originally paid for it (hooray!) and someone in Seattle will be very happy when they open their presents!

is it real?

I got this vest on ebay and had the best intentions for wearing it. Tossing it on top of  flowy maxi dresses and walking through street fairs digging the boho vibe. Wearing it while people watching at the cafes in Paris. The truth is; I over think wearing it. 
My town doesn't exactly scream Aspen or Vail where everyone has their fur tossed on over their designer jeans and hand knit sweaters or indie tees. 
A fur in my neck of the woods could get you noticed . Getting noticed is okay; but the whole fur controversy bugs me and I don't want to deal with any PETA people by saying that "it's vintage! I'm recycling! reusing!". 
And Paris. It might be wonderful in Paris but last year when we went for the holidays; it rained. It rained a lot. 
I hope someone wins that will love it. and wear it. and not think about it.(click to the shop page on the right if you want to bid!)
