Cozy little blue vest.

Autumn storms in Sacramento mean chilly evenings, (you know, chilly by California, non-snowy standards).

Enter my beloved North Face down vest.

There are two things you should know. One, I have very stylish friends. Two, I’m not nearly as stylish.ย But, my love for this puffy, blue sleeping-bag-of-a-vest has nothing to do with style. It’s all about how it makes me feel. Warm, safe, happy.

You can ask my family. They’re likely to see me in this all winter long, (plus whatever I can get away with in fall and spring too). If I were a character in your novel, you would have to include it. I have an odd attachment to this puffy pillow of a vest that I received for Christmas last year. So odd and so strong I had to blog about it. That and I had to lighten the mood. Been a little serious lately.

Do you also have an adult safety blanket, or is it just me?

Did I mention half the teachers I know own one of these things? Wearing mine right now…

  1. Hey man, Sacramento chilly is still pretty darn chilly! Actually, it’s perfect puffy vest weather: not cold enough for the full thing, juuuust cool enough for some torso warmth. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I have a black leather biker jacket that I’ve had since I was 19. I love that thing…

  3. Mine is literally a blanket: an afghan my Oma crocheted for me. She’s 90 years old and still picks up a hook or needles every so often, and she belongs to a quilting group.

      How beautiful! There is a book I like reading my students called the Keeping Quilt. I love the idea of a quilt passed through the generations, carrying all of a family’s love and history with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great info and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to get some professional writers? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚
