{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}
This week (it's been a while so...the past few weeks) I am thankful for:

The beautiful days we have had this week.

Friendship.

Early mornings.

Squeezing in time to read when ever I can (thank you swim practice).

Headlands tomato soup. (It's my current craving).

Getting to go on Zoey's first field trip with her.


Some quiet time with Marsh.

My parents inviting the girls for a sleep over. 

The relationship my kids have with my parents.

The amazing love and understanding that Marshall always gives me.

The girls making friends at school.

Birthday parties in the woods.


Kids being kids.

Small town community.

My amazing employees, I am lucky to have people working for me that enjoy their job!

The privilege of having my own business, and the ability to make my schedule work for my life and my family.

Wonderful customers who shop at Pippi's and make all that I am able to do possible, I am so grateful for you!

Shop Mom and Pop

As Fort Bragg locals we are lucky to call this place home.  Folks travel long twisting roads to get here and soak in the salty air and small town goodness of Fort Bragg before they head back to their reality. We are so spoiled this is our reality! A line of four people at the coffee house or a retail shop, that's a long line for Fort Bragg.  Too many people at a beach,  we can just go to the next one! A downtown full of unique locally owned businesses yup, we have it pretty good.
As town slows down and becomes our comfortable haven of peace and quiet again after the summer crowds it's your turn to enjoy our beautiful downtown.  Come on out and support all of your favorite locally owned businesses we are here for you all year round.  See you downtown!

September Allready?

How is it September? How are both my kids in school? How is my to do list so long? How has it been so long since my last blog post?


The answer to all of the above, life.  Life got busy, it hasn't slowed down much either but I am ready to refocus on the blog and Pippi's social media a bit more again. 
The kids are in school and Pippi's is gearing up for fall with tons of cozy socks!  Wool, cashmere, bamboo, we have so many good things!
As we head into fall and gear up for the holidays, remember, come downtown and check out the new stuff Pippi's (and all the other downtown shops) have in stock for this fall and winter. 


I have an ever changing inventory and I always have a big range of price points so all of my customers can work within their budget.  Don't forget your stamp card, when it's full you can treat yourself to a half price pair of socks!  See you soon.

This week (it's been a while so...the past few weeks) I am thankful for:

Community in action.

A good and very informative debate on Measure U, I think everyone who went heard an overwhelming amount of information that explained why this measure is wrong.

Walking Fort Bragg with my dad.

Piaci with the family.

Coffee dates with friends, and playtime at Pippi's.


New stuff in stock at Pippi's.

Baby cuddles.

A fun earth day celebration.  I love seeing how the gardens at the high school have evolved over the years.

Running into so many friends at the earth day celebration.

Family days.

Celebrity sightings, Smokey is still cool after all these years.


My yard in the early morning.

The blooming roses in my back yard.

Rain after my garden hose broke.

Science experiments, especially her large (and totally gross) jar of what she calls mischief...


Time spent with my dear Marshall.

Our lovely little downtown, I am so lucky to get to be there each day.

Redwood school and the great teachers there.

Rock band with the girls.


Being able to encourage and support someone when they needed it.

This town.  I love walking on my errands downtown each morning I love that I usually run into a friend, customer or acquaintance and and have the opportunity to share small moments special people each day.
