Stitch Fix #2

Daughter Deerest

I’m ….baaaaack! My cousin took the plunge and signed up for a fix using my referral link so the credit was burning a hole in my virtual pocket. I hadn’t scheduled a fix for a while so I was excited to be receiving a few new pieces for my wardrobe. I asked my stylist for 5 tops for work and my girl Meg listened! I ended keeping all 5 items so I did get 25% off. I will say that since I’m living in civilization and can go to the mall to shop – this will be my last fix for awhile. But as always I appreciate the experience.

Check Out What I Received This Fix

šŸ­ Zack Raglan TopĀ {Skies are Blue} $58

I like the fabric and feel of this top the best. It felt the most luxurious and worth the $58.

šŸ® Huebert Space Dye Open CardiganĀ {Renee C} $58

This was my least favorite item of the five, because I feel like I have so many of these in my closet already.

šŸÆ Layle Shirred Shoulder BlouseĀ {41Hawthorn} $58

Loved this color, style and fit. If this were on a rack at the store I would probably overlook it because the way the fabric feels.

šŸ° Embry Mixed Material Top {41Hawthorn} $54

The vintage pattern is hot, the cleavage cut not so much.

šŸ± Edwin Crew Neck BlouseĀ {41Hawthorn} $58

This is a perfect piece to dress up or down. I like this

Go Where Wednesday? | Pizzeria Pezzo

Go Where Wednesday? | Daughter Deerest

The nature of the ‘Go Where Wednesday?’ series is changing a bit. My husband and I have moved back to the Twin Cities and we won’t be traveling through rural towns as frequently. However, in civilization there are opportunities to visit new restaurants, boutiques, main streets in charming communities and an unlimited amount of things to do in the outdoors that will be as equally interesting.

Today I want to introduce you to Pizzeria PezzoĀ in White Bear Lake, MN. The Love and I were looking forward to a fabulous date night and took the recommendation of a friend to check out a new restaurant in the old Decoy’s spot. I’m surprised that spot remained vacant for so long as the location is ideal being right off HWY 61 and right by the infamous Cup N’ Cone. Continue reading

Good realtionships are worth waiting for

More than a few days have passed since I posted about The Sneaky Ring Surprise, give it a quick read if you haven’t already. That beautiful sparkly ring that my Love surprised me with no longer resides on my finger, but I reassure you – all is well in our world.

WeddingRing

I guess now would be the perfect time to share that I am a washed up D3 basketball player. I think I can count the number of points I scored on all my digits but I tried out just to see if I could make the cut and I did. I don’t know if that tells you more about the people I tried out with or me. I learned a lot about camaraderieĀ and heart during my short lived collegiate basketball career. I also came away with a broken left pinky that doesn’t sit right next to my ring finger. Ā The band on the beautiful sparkly ring was just a little too thick and rubbed funny against my deformed left pinky. The ring was a little too big, so we would have had to get it resized as well.

That November weĀ spent some time in Truckee, California for Veteran’s Day and found a little jewelry studio off the main drag. E found a band that we both liked. E picked out the wedding ring and I love the way it looks on his hand. It is a unique pattern called Mokume’, a technique where two metals are stamped out together.Ā I fell in love with the industrial style and unique elements of this gal’s taste.

After looking around her shop and falling in love with a design that was published in a local tourism magazine, E & I decided to return the original ring and start a custom design with the shop in Truckee. We stopped back in early December to start a discussion with the gal at the shop and to talk about design/price. The process was incredibly long and very poor communication by the artist which is why I’m not sharing the name of the studio. However, I am happy with the design. The same Mokume’ pattern on E’s ring is incorporated, the band is wider and skinnier, and it is asymmetrical which matches my style. Initially I fell in love with it but after time you pick out the small flaws naturally. The soldering of one side of the ring is sloppy if you look up close but it was made by a person not a machine.Ā Good Relationships Are Worth Waiting For DaughterDeerest.png

I am happy to finally have a wedding ring, but I LOVE having a good marriage. The foundation of our forever was never about a ring, a fairytale wedding or unnecessary pressures. I found myself a good man and the best forever friend around. The authenticity of my relationship cannot be defined by a ring. No relationship can, so be mindful when you put faith and high importance on tangible things.

If you have found your forever love, hold on to it, fight for it and do not take it for granted. If you’re still looking, I suggest you put more importance in the quality and clarity of your man than the diamond.

Moving & Grooving

I could start off apologizing and giving you a slew of reasons I’ve been absent, but I’m not going to because I’m moving and grooving in a positive direction. The positivity train departed Northern Nevada last Saturday and finally arrived in Minnesota early Wednesday morning. Can I get a CHOO-CHOO?

ChooChooWe have relocated to the Twin Cities and I am beyond the moon happy. The reason I started this blog in the beginning of the year was to find purpose and focus my energies and have something to show for it. The call to move came sooner than I had anticipated but my desire to continue and invest my time and energy into this blog still exist. Living in a metropolitan area also presents professional opportunities I fully intend to pursue. The direction of this blog is sort of up in the air, we will continue to travel but will focus on Minnesota and surrounding midwest areas. Commerce is everywhere here. I will have so many opportunities to peruse quaint boutiques and unique gift shops. It will be a change of pace but we will also be doing big kid things like buying a house, which terrifies me. It is a level of permanence that just seems too be a lot of responsibility, a level of responsibility I am torn to accept.

The Love starts his new job tomorrow and we have settled in to our temporary living quarters. I will be getting back to posting more often and hopefully uploading more YT videos.

Looking forward to positive life changes please be patient as we work out the kinks of Ā moving back to civilization.

Happy to be back!Daughter Deerest Signature
