My dad Larry (above right) turned 67 years young yesterday. Today, the baby of his brood (below right), turns 21 YEARS! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say . . .
Sterling, wishing you the best birthday yet! In between partying your faces off in Vegas and having a few moments like this . . . .

May you, your father, and your older brother bond at the bar, and may they impart a little wisdom on reaching adulthood. Here’s mine:
I believe much of what is stated above is already inherently in you. At this age it can be the best of times and the worst of times. Always remember this beautiful Cherokee legend:

In early December I styled for a photo shoot that I had been conceptualizing since September (literally). The client; one tough cookie and hard critic. Yup . . . . ME.
It’s pretty much impossible to style AND be the subject simultaneously, but thanks to our brilliant
photographer Andy, the ideas and inspirations
leapt to life through his lense.
I pulled out my props and set the scene and then promptly laid down on the job while Andy did all the work. I am sure he enjoyed not having to share his viewfinder with me!
Can’t thank him enough, this shoot was loads of laughs. As I am not a huge fan of posting personal photos, I’ll let the readers who have interest head on over to brilliants blog post

Did you have yourselves a Merry Little Moonlit Night? We certainly did; a homemade Christmas dinner under the stars with close friends, our island family, last night. We are thrilled to soon see this couple celebrate their one year mark! He hosted at his Hemingway-esque cottage on the beach, a place we have so many incredible memories of and in over the last decade. We ate island style; carrot soup, steamed green beans, smoked gouda pasta, and lobster so tasty it could dismiss the melted butter sauce. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening; great company, nonstop laughs, and an exchange of favorite Christmas childhood memories over a hearty homemade meal.
So despite my heart wandering to Wyoming these last few days, to my brothers who have made the trek (near and far) home for the holidays, to familiar places blanketed in winter, I have much to be happy for here in this tropical place we call home. For now we will enjoy the sunshine and the sea, and soon enough we will play in a winter wonderland like pictured here.
