Alright, while there is plenty more where this came from, here's a snippet of the infamous and exhausting weekend of Coachella. Lots of good music, interesting art and meeting Devendra Banhart. In summary: AMAZING (despite my horrible sunburn).

  1. Oh my gosh! We all start somewhere right Krystal!! This is your first post isn't it? I can't believe it. You must sometimes just, you know, pinch yourself a little when you look back on how far you've come.

    I was telling my husband about you--after I told him that I would be happy with my numbers for a month because KB follows me now (I know, I know, I'm a total #fangirl!). Anyway, this may sound silly or I may just be trying to make myself feel better, but I can relate to the dream that has become your reality. I'm 44; you're just 30. So that puts a good 14 years on me ahead of you. But, I'm from a small-ish town like you, Spokane, Washington. I only dreamed of going into the fashion industry. Being the oldest of five however, graduating in 1990 from high school, well those dreams got shattered--not that's too harsh a word, those dreams just weren't encouraged. I started embarking on my adult life right when the Internet was kind of like born.

    I graduated from the U of W in 1994. Then, by 1997, I got married at 25. That's when Seattle just BOOMED! Like seriously!! But Kevin and I had just ventured overseas--to El Salvador of all places. We always looked back at our friends, working for Microsoft, and Yahoo, and even you might remember, Ask Jeeves! (Google wasn't even a term yet....)

    Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is that part of my fondness for you is that I somehow like to vicariously live through you--as if, if I were born later, my pathway might have gotten differently. In no way am I disappointed by my pathway. Heck, I have seen the world! I adore my husband, and we have two great kids. We go home for summers to a lovely lake cabin in Spirit Lake, Idaho (which, you have an open invitation to--here in HK or there;). But, in terms of my career in fashion that never happened, but my blogging is like grabbing that little Annie Freuen way back from 8th grade when in 1987 I used to rip pages out of Vogue and draw the designs in my sketchbook....

    Goodness! I tend to write you novels. But this is a fun post to see.

    Love ya Krystal!!
