So much has been happening as the days of February go by. This month has been a whirlwind and we are not even through it yet! I promised myself I would get our taxes done without waiting til’ the last second like we did last year, so we spent last Friday @ the accountant’s office. While we were there I  randomly checked my facebook page on my phone (I am so NOT a facebook person, I rarely, if ever, open the app on my phone). While listening to Rob & the accountant talk, I scrolled down and discovered that a really dear friend of our family had passed away earlier that day. My heart just sank. I felt so trapped!!! It’s so crazy how when you hear about the death of someone you care about, all these memories, and emotions and feelings just come flooding in. And then memories and feelings and emotions from other people you love who have passed away come rushing back too!! Ugh. Anyway, that’s Diana (top row, middle pic in the collage). She was such a larger than life person, with a huge loving heart and a warm, inviting smile. She and her family were a big part of our childhood when we first moved back to Cali from Chicago. We spent almost every summer day @ Diana’s house hanging out with her kids, our friends, David & Cara. Our days were spent shoeless, and carefree, between the beach and her pool, swimming all day, eating Doritos and just being kids. My memories of Diana and her family always bring a smile to my face. They were some of the happiest times of my childhood, and I am so thankful for them.

On other fronts, my samples are being made as we speak (yay!) And we are working on the redesign of the website. (double yay!). I am super excited. We are also gearing up for our photo shoot @ the beginning of March. Lots of prep-work, plotting, & planning going on. I love it! In the meantime and in between time, I am trying to get used to my new haircut. I had to get rid of the dead ends and have been wanting to go short for a while, so I have finally taken the first step. I don’t have my ideal cut yet, but I am on my way there and I am enjoying the changes along the way.

Well guys, thanks for listening to my ramblings, I have a conference call in 20 mins, so I guess I should prep for that so I can cover all my bases!!! Hope you are having a fab Wednesday. Keep moving toward your goals, they are truly attainable!!!

O Happy Day!!! New Samples Have Arrived . . .!!!

I’m so excited! Last week I mentioned that I was expecting new samples to come in any day. Well they arrived on Monday! These are samples of 2 of our best selling styles from previous seasons. I had the manufacturer make a few changes to see how well they could follow my instructions, sketches & notes. The samples allow me to get a better feel for the quality of their work and sourcing capabilities before I commit to working with them.  I think they look fab!! What do you think? The leather is really soft and supple and the construction is sound and clean. I also like the changes made to the styles!! Don’t look now, but these revamped styles may just have to be reworked into the new line!!! Next up, new samples for the 2012-2013 Season . . . I.  Can. Not. Wait. #itsgettingcloser

I hope today is bringing you all you have hoped for. ♥
