The pollen count in Atlanta today was 1690; spring has finally sprung! How then am I just now getting to posting photos of from the bleak mid winter? Procrastination coupled with a good dose of Insanity! I took a bit of hiatus from properly posting for several reasons: I have working with a truly talented artist and friend on the aesthetics of this blog; I have been, until about two weeks ago, deep in the fitness program, Insanity, in attempt to bring my body back to normal after a Christmas of frivolous indulgence; and because no one knows how to put something off till tomorrow like I do. Insanity (well the fitness program at least) in it’s rigid gregorian form is history now– I am still doing a video here and there as part of my overall fitness regime– and so with more time at my disposable, I hope to be able to better focus on sharing with you. A coat is the sort of garment I believe one should invest in with aplomb, knowing it will clothe you for several cold seasons to come. When I finally chanced upon a navy-coloured wool coat that fit the bill in December, I found a new reason to embrace the chill in the air. Bold gold hardware on a classic cut redolent of regimentary regalia: the decision was already made. She’s been a mutli-faceted joy to own: practical, earnest.
