New in the shop : The Pencil Factory post image

pp_pencilfactory It’s the little things that get us giddy with excitement around here at Urbanic - like PENCILS!   We recently got in a shipment of these Nashville assorted pencils boxes from The Pencil Factory and have become smitten with graphite delight.  Each set has an assortment of the 6 finest pencil varieties. We’re talking … bridge, carpenter, wax, no.2, round, and jumbo hex! Did we mention that they’re made here in the US, and each stamped beautifully with metallic gold foil? Okay that’s enough pencil talk for now.

FIFTEEN post image

IMG_0967 In 1997 I met a guy at music festival & knew in my heart (right away) that he was the one. We lived on opposite coasts + fell in love writing letters to each other over a year. When he proposed to me after we had only seen each for the 3rd time, everyone in our lives thought we were crazy. I will tell you that it was the best ‘yes’ that I have ever spoken. I married my best friend, and my soulmate partner in life. Our marriage is by no means perfect, but it’s true and we’re committed till the end. Today Joshua & I are celebrating 15 years!
The picture above on the right is my most cherished. It was taken of us in deep conversation on the day we met.
