we'll look at them stars when we're together

i'm back again! apologies in advance for a picture-heavy post...

here are my studio calico projects for the month...i finally got a chance to look through the design team gallery today and was once again blown away by the fabulous work in there. i think i speak for the entire team when i say this kit was quite lovely :)







so anyway. i just realized that it was labor day weekend 2 years ago when i first went up to norcal and became smitten. crazy how time flies, and crazy how i'm ALWAYS there now, eh?

highlights from my trip...

the boy and i had dinner at skate's one night...and while the food was fantastic, it was this view of the san francisco skyline that was the best part. we were lucky that it was clear that evening...no fog!


i had the chance to attend the last day of the outside lands festival in san francisco. it made up for not going to a single concert in 6 months. there were 150,000 people and there was lots of walking and standing, which caused my legs to be useless the next day, but it was quite an experience. i got to see stars (who were kind of disappointing), andrew bird, broken social scene, bon iver (who was absolutely terrific), rogue wave (who was also awesome), a little bit of wilco (i need to see them again!), and...


jack johnson. swoon. he was awesome and adorable and "better together" live was lovely.

i also ate way too many s'mores again...and by the way, bailey's + milk + rocky road ice cream is the best thing ever (hey. i'm getting my calcium). worked on a tan a little more...and while in the boonies. we almost got attacked by a squirrel. it's a bizarre story (it fell down the chimney. yeaaah), but it's quite hilarious now. i'll definitely have to scrap it! the boy also had this idea to tailgate with a pizza from zachary's and it was the best idea ever (and made up for the fact that the a's lost quite terribly).


i looked out the window on the plane home as we approached the LA area, and this is what i saw. check out the lovely smog. gag.


and....i miss him already. it might be a little bit before i get back up to the bay area but we've got something else in the works in the meantime :)

anyhow. happy labor day :) is it seriously september already?

you never appreciate the clean Nor Cal air until you fly into So Cal and see the smog. I remember the first time I saw an LA "rainbow". I thought it was so pretty and my dad told me it was smog.

isn't nor cal awesome??
