5th July 2011

I don’t know what’s better – the joy I felt when I received these photos or the strange feeling that I was actually there when these were taken. My best friend Laura is overseas at the moment and took Gary Pepper on its very first European summer. She’s currently over there with three of my closest friends so these photos helped with how much I am missing them. Loved feeling like I was there running around in gumboots with her at Glastonbury, or sun baking on a sailboat in Croatia, or watching a beautiful setting sun over the white painted houses in Santorini. It’s so cute imagining her climbing up the side of the boat to hang the bag up there and seeing the thought that went into each photo. Friends like these don’t come by often, and my heart and head knows I’ll hold on to her forever.

PS. For this week only I’m offering a free Gary Pepper Tote Bag with every purchase. If you’d like just the bag they’re only $5 and available in store here. Laura still has to send her photos of Gary Pepper in Spain and Portugal so if you already have one of my tote bags take a photo of it, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, and email it to me at [email protected] I’d love to include it in my next post and see what my bags get up to when they leave my office.
