You know how 92.7% of the time when you see a pic of yourself you wish something was different (hair, weight, smile, angle, your whole life, LOL!)? When I saw this pic of myself that Gypsy Sister Tricia, Vintage Bliss took, my first thought was: "That's ME. In my element. In front of my gypsy Airstream. Wearing ripped denims and the leather fringe jacket I designed. Perched on my crumbly peely Louis. Smack dab in the middle of it." (Then, of course, I went after the bangs, chin challenge, and why do my feet look so huge....LOL!) 

About this time last year we officially closed our bricks and mortar shop and hit the road with our own wholesale designs. At times it HAS felt like jumping off a cliff ala Thelma and Louise. But at moments like this, when life is captured in the perfect light; when everything feels right to the bone, you realize: THIS is why I keep choosing the unknown over safe certainty. This is what LIVING MY life is about. 

I say the next time your life is captured in the perfect light, soak it up, breath it in, roll around in it! There will be plenty of time to ponder why you thought you looked younger without eyeliner, or just who was that crafty salesgirl who talked you into believing you still look fabulous in short shorts...

See you down the road!
