typically.eclectic.: Mic Check - 1,2 - 1,2

My baby girl is blogging! She’s really smart and funny and pretty [as if that matters.]

[IT DOES.]

Check her out. She’s the best!

typicallyeclectic:

I am back. After a long hiatus from the rocky start of my blog, lots of thinking & stressing, and the new year [plus, the encouragement of one very special friend] - it’s time that I pick this thing back up and start creating.

This is my first post [well, 4th] toward becoming a blogger. It’s…

Aaron & I met in New York [though we were both born and raised in Southern California], so we wanted a few engagement photos taken here.

My friend, Stephanie, took some photos of us today  and is an INCREDIBLE photographer [see above]. If you live in New York & want your picture taken, let me know - I am continually blown away by her talent.

Awesomeness Abounds: Me, as a parent.

heylaney:

In bullet form. Because me, as a parent, has very limited typing time:

  • It’s much more intuitive than I thought it would be. I’m a “go to the information” type person but all those books I bought? Those posts and articles I bookmarked? They’re gathering literal and figurative…

This is lovely. You’re both beautiful mothers & it makes me love my own that much more.

Girl with a Lesson Plan: In the midst of Occupy ____________, please keep in mind there are...

I could not agree with this more. Given that both of my parents are police officers, it gets incredibly frustrating to hear people generalize ALL police officers as brutal, non-peaceful people.

girlwithalessonplan:

In the midst of Occupy ____________, please keep in mind there are good police officers out there.

I’m likely in the minority here, and yes, I know I am biased because I am in a relationship with an officer. He and I have had frank discussions of our views on the Occupy movement. I think what…

DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE FEATURED ON THE HUFFINGTON POST!

octaviaminor:

Life is laugh-out-loud funny sometimes. Yesterday was the perfect example. We officially launched Daughters of Simone 4 months ago and really only put decent inventory up 3 weeks ago. We’re updating our structure and constantly asking ourselves what we can do to sustainably build this business. We began as two girls who met every Wednesday over homemade dinners and vino to discuss our “passion project” (which had nothing to do with bridal, by the way), and now only a year later, we get thrown this huge curve ball that we never expected coming our way. Heck, I didn’t even know we were a possible target. All I can ask myself is HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE GET HERE? I’m a part of this and I have no idea!

So here comes the curve ball:
Our Daughters of Simone interview with SF Indie Fashion blogger, Lorraine Sanders from a couple weeks back got picked up and featured on the Huffington Post yesterday! We had zero idea this was going to happen. As you can imagine, we’re pretty happy (and shocked) girls! Every single tiny mention via blog or word of mouth means the world to us, so to see our names on The Huffington Post literally brings me to laughter/a state of confusion/unexplainable excitement! Regardless of still being in complete dismay — thanks again for all of the continuous support from our family, friends, friends of friends, customers, and the sweet women who have e-mailed us saying that they hope to become customers in the future.

We have a lot of work to do, but this is another nudge to keep the ball rolling!

I am so proud of these girls! Their store is brilliant & their talent is limitless, and I’m so excited to see their work get noticed. Check out of Daughters of Simone, if you haven’t already!
