A few of us are heading to a wedding this week, one of our best girlfriends from college is getting married! Weddings are always a good time, and it's nice to take a break from our daily lives and celebrate the people we love. I am writing a speech for the wedding, something I am both excited and terrified of doing. An unexpected perk of this is all the reading a research I have been doing to prepare for it.


Reading old love letters, poetry, and all kinds of writings on love is an interesting process. Some of it is sad, surprising, and touching, and some of it is flaming, Splenda-flavored garbage. Personally, I have a hard time with some of the clichés often attached to notions of love, but everything I am looking at is obviously coming through my own, jaded filter.


I understand that this kind of thing is not exactly what you might expect to find on a blog for a fashion brand. But we try to be real with you about how we work, and love with all of it's messy parts is probably the most real thing there is.


I did find this quote the other day while looking through things, and it sat well with me. It's written by Georgia O' Keeffe, from a letter to Edna St. Vincent Millay, taken from Savage Beauty: The Life of Edna St. Vincent Millay.


"And I am rather inclined to feel that you and I know the best parts of one another without spending much time together. It is not that I fear the knowing. It is that I am at this moment willing to let you be what you are to me–beautiful and pure and very intensely alive."


The last line does it for me, mostly because I feel like we constantly try to figure everything out about people, rather than just let then be who they are at that moment. I think its beautiful.


Hope you have some beautiful things in your day, and try to let people just be what they are sometimes, even if it's fleeting.
