We love our Larkspur community! It's hard to say goodbye to our little pop-up store downtown. But change is inevitable, and the recent sale of our building is helping us search for for new home for the Dude Girl shop.
The King of Spain, Queen Elizabeth II of England, and President Obama have dined from, or received as a gift, the hand-painted pottery of the village, Carmen de Bivoral. So why shouldn't our first sag stop of the day be at the factory where it's made?
We left Luz-Marina's hotel, which was hard to do. This place feels like home. Denise and I shared a nice evening in the kitchen with the proprietor last night over a glass of wine. We feel as though we are old friends and were surprised at the small-world connections we discovered!
We have arrived and are filled with as much anticipation tonight as a child on Christmas Eve. Denise stated tonight as we tucked ourselves into bed: "It's better than I ever imagined!" Already.
Every once in a while, I come across an opportunity that I just can't resist. This time, we're building a cycling trip in the Andes Mountains of Colombia.
