Visible Monday: Freitag You’re It
I take more vitamins now that I ever have my whole life. I do my daily yoga. I rest.
WHY CAN’T I STOP GETTING SICK? I am so fed up. I think I had a 10-day reprieve, but it’s back and I am f’ing miserable. MISERABLE. With no chance in hell of getting hair and make-up done today I bring to you what makes me feel visible on the outside (with matching garage accessories):
It has a fleece band on the inside that covers my ears. Very warm.
Sunglasses: Whole Foods
Coat: Mountain Gear, XL
I bought this jacket in this color so Arlo could always find me. True story.
Let’s linger here for a moment.
My husband Kris is an excellent gift-giver. He pays attention throughout the year and then blammo! He drops something meaningful/useful/beautiful in my lap. I broke my 15-year-old Coach wallet while in Bermuda and while Coach offers a lifetime $20 only repair fee, it was a challenge to get this taken care of while outside the States. Before I knew it this beauty came to me at Christmas, all the way from Zürich, Switzerland:
Soon enough I needed to start thinking of a bag I could use as both my purse and diaper bag. Kris was returning to Zürich so I put in my request once I found a design that
- fit over my shoulder
- opened with one hand and remained open
- had at least one outside pocket
- no zippers
Freitag had it all in addition to being one-of-kind and made from recycled materials. It was an investment to my wardrobe no question, but I only need one bag. Well, two in case I go somewhere fancy-pants without children. So really this is the only bag I carry. And with Daughter on the way I suspect I will continue to carry it for many years to come.
