My friend Elizabeth is a dress designer who owns a small boutique here in Portland called The English Dept. (She also has an Etsy shop and a web site.) I had her model for me at her shop yesterday. Isn't this dress (which she designed and made herself) the prettiest thing you'll see all day? I think so. Scrumptious. Lovely.
I have been careening around from one side of town to the other this week, shopping for photo shoots, getting stuff done, having a meeting then going to a photography seminar later this afternoon, trying to get the birds ready for pre-order (late with that, sorry), thinking about all of the information in the coupon post — WOW. So much there. A lot of information — thank you! I will collect some thoughts and some resources for us when I finally sit down and get organized.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the fires in Australia. Information for anyone who wants to help is collected here.
