When I started this company I had no clue what I was doing, but I did know that if I was doing anything, I was doing it unconventionally. I didn't want to just make things and sell them (though I find that aspect very cool), I wanted to evoke a feeling, a memory, an experience. So when it was time to publish my designs on the internet...I just started writing and I called on my then boyfriend Will and my friends to write. I wanted little blips of moments people could relate to or wanted to relate to, moments people could see themselves in. Mini stories started to emerge. Stories about freedom, love, strength, sticky situations, humorous moments. Stories that describe who I am and who I've always wanted to be. It was my goal to create a connection. And I hope that some of you have felt it somewhere along the way. Some stories are actual moments from my life and my friends' lives, some are stories inspired by the lives we want to lead.

If you haven't seen them in our product listings, here are just a few of my favorites: >>>It was so hot that day. We went shopping for ice together and both, awkwardly, reached in to grab a bag at the same time. On a day when it seemed there was no way one could get any more flush. I did. We both did. And That was just the beginning. >>> Besides being able to do a perfect ballerina spin, she really wanted to be able to climb trees like a cat.
