I also want to give special thanks to my awesome husband, Jay, for encouraging me to follow through with starting the blog and for putting up with my incessant ridiculousness, whining, complaining, frustration, self-doubt and insecurities about my abilities while going through the process of learning what having a blog is all about, taking and editing photos and developing my writing. I am, admittedly, a handful and he's been unbelievably and incredibly patient.

all that glitters

 I have no clue how my favorite Vans got so tattered, but I just couldn't let them go without a fight. This is my latest DIY project, inspired by Honestly WTF's DIY Miu Miu Sneakers tutorial.
