Remember that spectacular view from the house that I wrote about in one of my first entries? Well, another rainy day has fogged it out completely! What a day. I literally can’t see past my deck!! I have a few errands to run and am psyching myself up to head out on the town.

Had a fun evening last night. Was invited to a sale at a store called Kowtow. Kowtow a Chinese term meaning the act of deep respect demonstrated by kneeling and bowing your head to touch the ground; a perfect name for this company. Run by a couple of artists (she’s a fashion designer, he’s a graphic artist), their main philosophy is to only use fair trade, organic materials and practices. Kowtow has done so well that they just recently moved to a larger studio and last night they hosted a cocktail party in their store and offered great discounts on their stuff. They also had photos of their recent trip to India where they visited the cotton factories and met some of the workers. An amazing pair with an inspiring philosophy. Plus, their stuff is a-may-zing!! Comfy, flattering cuts, and ethical. How could you go wrong? ☺

The rest of the weekend will be spent running last minute errands and getting stuff together for Pete’s arrival next week – woohoo!!

Now, if I can just get up the motivation to take on Mother Nature’s crabby mood...
