The Town's Been Talkin'

To say the last month has been a walk down memory lane would almost be an understatement. In the past month I've seen ten or more old friends and acquaintances that I haven't seen in as long as six, or seven years. It all started with running into two very old friends at a local coffee shop, and since then I've been seeing people here and there, in places I frequent, and some that I usually don't. I live in a HUGE city/area, so I can understand why I haven't seen so many of these people in years, but really, the different, little communities around are pretty tight and people still seem to hang around the same old areas (even if our paths have only crossed now after all these years).

Its been neat to see where people are today. Married, babies on the way, with much more facial hair than they once had (only talking about the boys, of course!), still up to the same old stuff, but only with a slightly different schedule. When I first saw the two friends that seem to create this snowball effect of running into people left and right, I said out loud that they were still the same old punks to me. Now, I truly mean that in the best way because that is how I knew them growing up, and that's what I loved about them when I was younger. Free spirited, unique in their own way, and still very kind. It was heart warming to see that people you hold such fond memories of are still the same (and I'm hoping they think that about me too).

On another note, lately I'v been really loving these Minnetonka booties! To me, moccasins are the perfect shoes for fall, and most days I can be found sporting a pair. I picked this pair up in a tiny, ski resort town on the Western Slope of Colorado and have been loving them ever since. Right now I've got my eye on these pretty Woodstock Boots, and think I may need to make a little splurge if I can get my hands on them! What Minnetonka Moccasin style is your favorite? PS I totally had to try out Erin's famous jump! She always has a way of making her jumping photos look so chic!

Tonight I'm so excited to attend the grand opening of Cleo & Clementine, a cute, new boutique in Phoenix! They're going to have creme brûlée from Torched Goodness (one of the best food trucks in PHX!), a cute photo booth, treats, and lots of handmade goodness! If you're local, you should definitely stop by and check out the shop. You can find all of the details right here.

What do you have planned for the weekend?

  3. I <3 Minnetonka shoes! I have a pair of their simple suede boots in black and a pair of their sandals that my parents bought for me while on a trip to Florida. But I love this pair you have...I may need to find these booties in a store near me. :)

  4. I love the way your scarf is styled! :) Also, I'm pretty jealous that you're always going to events around Phoenix! Have fun :) I'll have to make it to more of them!
