I’ve just returned from a 5 day jaunt to Hastings, Minnesota! It was high-time to introduce my son Julian to his Great Grandma, Uncles, Aunts and Cousins. Julian was awesome, he fell asleep right before take off, truly taking after his mama.
There were long dinners, drives, unexpected meetings with old friends, baffling road construction and lots of Wii games. The major heartbreak is our overly friendly child lept into all of their arms except his Great Grandma Dorothy (88 years young). We will return soon for another visit just to remedy this! I can’t wait until I can demand compliance….
Day three we checked out Edina – a cute little suburb of Minneapolis. Linda, our host fixed us the most delightful sandwiches with her homemade pickles. We took a walk around her cute neighborhood, and I dipped in for a quick drink here with the Nagayama brothers. Always a good time with these two, for certain there will be some sports and bathroom talk. Well and the best laugh this side of the Mississippi.
I have to say that this trip once again reaffirmed that people in the Midwest are beyond nice. I know i’m generalizing here but after growing up in a big city the difference is palpable. We had nothing but love and sweet interactions with all those we encountered.
It’s back to the grind for me (I should be asleep!) so I will leave you with Grandma’s Dorothy’s needlepoint which pretty much sums up my current condition.
We’ve packed it all up….
We have closed a door and are anxiously awaiting to open a new one.
We are excited for our new adventure and are counting on you to help make it fun and fantastic.
We are opening up a shop! We hope to open in mid-July and will keep you posted on the details.
Let the painting of walls begin!
We love us some Sofie. She’s been working with us for the last three years and we are so lucky to have her. Her new Spring 2009 Collection is now online and we for certain are in love!

Sofie Ølgaard’s Online Boutique Launches
You know what they say about the Danish: A moment on the lips, two extra hours on the treadmill.
Indulge your waistline (without the guilt) with local designer Sofie Ølgaard’s new spring collection, now available online.
After completing fashion studies in London and putting in time at She-bible, the Danish up-and-comer wowed at the Gen Art fall premiere and launched her collection this spring. Her pieces are simultaneously modern and classic — simple silhouettes in silks and cottons imported from Japan.
Solid colors highlight construction in two-tone frocks and high-waisted flared skirts paired with structured tanks. But the best of the bunch are a black button-front jumpsuit and a ’20s-inspired suspender dress.
Yeah, it hides pastry puff on the hips.
Not bad for a clever little slip.

We are in the midst of a big move that will equal big changes.
Tomorrow She-bible life will be headquartered in a new location.
