Patagonia Forever

Hope your week is going nicely. Mine is chugging along pretty well. We just booked our tickets to India for late September, so now are frantically making reservations. If any of you have been to India (Northern), please drop me an email with suggestions!

Ok back to the blog. I know most of you have heard of Patagonia. They are actually based out of here, just a bit South of us in Ventura, CA. Patagonia is extremely philanthropic, giving 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. Got to love that. Here are the details on all their environmental activitism.

As most of you know, Danny and I buy a ton of stuff from them, including all of our luggage! They have a lifetime guarantee on everything too, so if you buy one of their stylish down jackets, and the zipper breaks, they will fix it for free! Same with the luggage! And the best part, if they can't fix it, they will REPLACE it! Plus it's all very fashionable these days. I have a green jacket that looks just like a Marc Jacobs. I wear it ALL the time. Check out this down vest for fall. Match it with your favorite jeans, and head off to NYC! Aw.. a girl can dream, can't she?

    Love the blog... I'm also going to India in October. We're starting in Delhi and heading out towards Calcutta. This is my second trip there - I can recommened the state of Rajasthan, where you will see Jodpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer (beautiful desert city) and Udaipur (my favourite place in Rajasthan). Of course, you have to see the Taj Mahal! One tip - eat vegetarian, you're much less likely to get ill.
