I stole this shearling jacket from my grandpa, it’s about 35 years old and I love it so much. I was thrilled to take it to Montana last week, you don’t have to wear much more than a t-shirt to stay warm. I’m a fairly sentimental person, keeping old cards, ticket stubs, maps and metro tickets from travels, but at the end of the day, they are pieces of paper that sit in boxes. Every time I wear this jacket, I think of my grandpa, and how cool he probably looked as a young man.

Because Thanksgiving came a little late this year, and Christmas is right around the corner, I dumped the remnants of autumn decor and picked up a tree yesterday. I realize that one Christopher Radko ornament, a small rosy wreath and a stuffed Santa Clause hand-me-down from mom does not make fabulous holiday decor, but hey, you gotta start somewhere.
