I grew up in St. Paul, MN which I'm always proud to say because Minnesotans are known for being good people, nice, well-educated, nice, a blue state in a sea of red, (present GOP presidential candidates excluded) and did I mention nice? And so I was honored when the magazine Mpls/St. Paul wrote a small profile of me this month.
"People Who Do Cool Things" That's a lucky section to be in. It's a flattering piece with an opening about CV bags becoming the "it" bags of the post "it" bag era, that Oprah is a fan of my line which is amazing, but it also says I write about puppies and flowers on my blog. I really don't think the writer meant it in a bad way, but come on. One time. One time I mentioned the new puppy Paco but according to this article I might as well have a blog about rainbows and unicorns. Ha ha.
Last night in my adopted city as I sat in my box seats at the Hollywood bowl (as a guest of my very nice friend from MN) watching an amazing concert featuring Janelle Monae and starring Stevie Wonder, I was struck by the sight of the charming CA state flag billowing next to the jumbo screen. The bear, the lone red star, the simple red line along the bottom, and the sans serif font exclaiming California Republic, it is arguably the coolest state flag in the union.
Now the writer could add flags. "CV blogs about puppies, flowers and flags." Unicorns and rainbows forthcoming. :)
