My girlfriends and I had a weekend reunion in Carmel this past weekend and we had a fabulous time. It had been about 7 years since we were all in the same room together, which is just too long in my opinion. I had seen some of my friends here and there over the years but we had a lot of catching up to do.
We all went to college at UC Santa Barbara which funny enough came out as the number 2 party school in the US this year. Although it has always been a party school so I suppose I wasn't that shocked. In any regard I had my first glass of wine with my friends back in the college days, two of whom grew up in Sonoma County, and have continued to enjoy wine to this day. Granted we drank the magnum of Vendage that cost us 4 dollars in college, but still. :)
We pretty much just got back to where we left off, as if we had never been apart for so long. 3 girls live in Sonoma County, 1 lives in Southern California, 1 in New York, and myself in good ol Fresno.
We all have busy lives with kids, jobs, and prior obligations but we really focused on planning a weekend to just reunite and have fun. I tell you it is worth it. If it has been a while since you have seen your college friends or good friends and you want a great weekend, I highly recommend setting aside the time to plan a get together. Next year I am hoping we can reunite in Santa Barbara!

Now on another note while I was in Carmel, I showed my friends my Stella and Dot collection and the bags were a hit! My favorite this season is the How Does She Do It Bag in Painted Zebra. The bag itself is very functional and can be worn to look more like a tote, or like structured bag (there are two clasps on the sides to make bag bigger or more compact). Tons of pockets for gadgets, as I always lose mine to the bottom of the bag. And for the size its a steal at $89. Plus the pattern can go with almost anything. If you would like a lookbook, or have questions please let me know! Or as always shop online at www.stelladot.com/erinredmond
