Harvey Faircloth & A Thank You To...

Hi everyone!  Just got back from an evening walk with Danny.  And I just picked the random recipient for a thank you gift.  Honestly, I wish I could send you all something.  That's the only problem with these thank you gifts.  :)  But I hope you all feel our gratitude for the good conversations that go on here.  Today we have a gift for Katie Fisher.  Katie, thank you for your beautiful words on the post, "Gathering Strength for a New Season."  You are such a dear. We feel honored to have you read our blog and we hope this thank you gift will be something you enjoy.    
Today's gift is this Apron Top from Harvey Faircloth.  I founded this company with two friends. What an experience it was to run a clothing line in NYC.  Holy smokes.

(The fabric on the Apron Top has this red graph paper pattern on it.)  

The company is now owned by another group and they have a different designer.  But the original line was designed by my business partner, Katie Hatch.  And, it turns out you all probably love her designs more than you know.  She is the Senior Design Director at Kate Spade Saturday.  :)

And just for a little Harvey nostalgia, here is a little Harvey film from back in the day.  It will get you very excited to start wearing fall clothes.  :)

Hope you all have lots of good things happen this weekend.

Our to do list:
-Get my bicycle porter crate screwed onto my bike.  (I got one, too!  I can't wait to use it.)
-Go to the farmer's market tomorrow.  Oh, how I will miss that place when the harvest season is over.
-Spend as much time outdoors as possible.  (September in New York is unbelievable.)
-Make some stovetop popcorn tonight with coconut oil, sea salt, and cracked pepper.  I've been craving this for days.
-And, of course, CLEAN!

Much love,


On Fridays we give a thank you gift to a random reader who has left ANY comment during the week on ANY post.  We just want to say thanks to the community here.  

Katie Fisher, please send me your address within 3 weeks!

  1. Wow! Thank you so much Mara and Danny! I will email you right away!!

  2. Love the top! What a fun to do list...I've never made stove top popcorn before so I'm adding that to my list!

  3. Hi Mara,
    I'm not sure if you remember me or not. I was in Danny's ward in Boston and you both home taught us a few times before you got married and moved to NY. I've been reading your blog for A LONG time now and I love it!!!! You guys are so amazing and we are so lucky that we got to know you just a little bit and have you in our home teaching us! Anyway- I wanted to tell you about a fun little connection I made over the weekend. So awhile ago you posted about Danny's sister's blog (great artist mom) and I love that blog too- I've been having a blast on there with my kids. They LOVE all her videos and learning to draw new things- it's been awesome. Anyway, I always thought she looked a little familiar. Well I went to one of my best friends weddings in Utah on Friday and happened to sit next to Laurie at the reception- ha! I recognized her from her blog and told her that I knew you guys. Turns out that she is in the ward I grew up in and now lives in a house that I know VERY well because it used to be one of my good friends home. What a fun coincidence! She was in my ward just before my family moved and then 8 years later I end up in Danny's ward all the way across the country. HA HA- I love all the little connections you find through the internet now:).
    Anyway- thank you guys for your inspirational and thoughtful words on this blog. You are a great example of happiness and beautiful marriage and family relationships!

  4. That's so nice. I have never come across a blogger that randomly gives away gifts to their readers. What a great idea!

    I like to cook so I especially like the apron and yeah, it's a really cool design :) Keep blogging.
