Inspiration to Creation: Sara Jane

Inspiration
Our Creation
I grew up in a small town in Northern California - that looks nothing like these photos.  The grass was dry and burned by the sun.  If you even dared ride your bike to sit under a tree and read, it would get a flat tire from the star thistle, and most likely you would get bit by a rattle snake, and stung by a bee.  While my description isn't so charming, I do have fond memories of enjoying hot summer days (110 degrees) at the Durham pool.  That is until a rattle snake den was found near the pool and it was shut down for a week.  As I remember it, it was the hottest week in history. It was too hot for anything to grow in that town, except almonds.  The one nut I am allergic to.  Sorry to be such a Debbie downer, but it's the truth.  Any who, I love Chico and it's sister city Durham.  I chose these pictures, because this is I how I choose to remember it.

I chose the name Sara Jane, because I went to elementary school with a girl by that name.  Something about these booties takes me back to my country roots, long summer days, and swimming at the Durham pool with Sara Jane.
