also, finding tennis shoes for a girl like me is tough. i am not particularly sporty, yet all of the tennis shoe options looks so... active. i've always worn just regular old gray new balances, but they decided to cave in on the sides and attack my ankles, so i went out in search of something equally passive and found there aren't a lot of options. everything has bubbles or bumps and looked generally intimidating.

so i got these. they were on sale for $26 at journeys. i gave up. this story had no climax. (have you any recommendations?)

brian meares and i are leaving tonight for boulder, co, land of the free and home of the brave, and i'll be gone for 1.0 week. this trip requires tennis shoes.

in additional traveling news, keila, nick and i are headed to LA in a few weeks to soak up some inspiration which MAY be related to my big news i've been twittering about!

i was happy to deliver this hair on hide custom bench to a client, with newly upholstered in thom filicia fabric retro chairs, but also sad to part with them.
