It is great to be back home in Idaho for the holiday. True to Sun Valley style, the air has been cold and the sun has been shining. Until today…..
It’s snowing! After a seemingly endless dry spell, Ullr is finally dropping some goodness on the valley. All of the snow dances and boyfriends painted toenails have finally payed off!
Last night, I had the opportunity to participate in an extraordinary event; a fashion show organized by a sister duet, who are very passionate about life, the world, and the overall healing ability of humanity. Here are a couple photos from the event.
The LiKi FAIRE mission statement: “People are beautiful. Throughout the world, people struggle to meet their basic needs of food, water, shelter, and education, putting immense pressure on resources and humanity’s ability to collectively lead healthy, happy, and sustainable lives. In Chile, a common saying is, “Bread tonight, starve tomorrow.” Thus, it is the commitment of LiKi FAIRE that for every item purchased, one nutritious, delicious dinner will be provided to a person of the artesan’s community that needs it. With this step to assure basic needs, the people of the world will be empowered to make decisions that will sustain and better their environment, health and culture for not only today, but for all of the generations of tomorrow.”

All proceeds from the show went to Protect Our Winters, a progressive organization working toward reducing the impact of climate change on winter sport communities and economies. Check out their website http://protectourwinters.org to learn more about climate change, its impact on your favorite winter pass time, and how you can become involved.
I had a great time working the runway, catching up with old friends, and getting pumped up for the winter months.
