hermes cuff.

so this weekend we were all in the car going for a little drive along the coast..
adele is playing on the radio and girls are coloring in the backseat..
{a rare and quiet moment}
we drive past this street in encinitas called hermes..
i turn to damian and say..
"it would be so cool to live on hermes.. i would pronounce it "hermes"
{i say it in my frenchest of french accent}.. 
not HERM-E-ssss.."
he in turn says to me " ya.. then there is this street cuff, we could live on hermes cuff"..
we start cracking up..
i turned and look at him..
in his black ny yankee hat.. a total guys guy.. but who drives a prius, uses reuseable grocery bags but who also plays golf, drinks scotch and reads yahoo finance..
who ALSO.
understands that there IS such a thing as a hermes cuff..
he. is. perfect.
i mean really? hermes cuff?
how dang sweet is that?
underneath my shaded raybans i just gazed at him while he drove..
it was just one of those perfect moments..
hermes cuff.
so brilliant.

{ps- this photo was taken on our honeymoon in kauai, 9 years ago and i love the way i am looking at him}

Another example of your fashion savoir-faire rubbing off on those around you. Looks like I'm not the only one! :)

Well played, D... well played.

I found you via Engaged & Inspired and as a girl born and raised in Encinitas had to start reading your blog! I actually grew up on Hermes (my mom and sis still live there) and my sister, the fashionista, always pronounces it in French. Small world, love this story!
