a poem for the next decade

I found this poem a few months ago and it spoke to me.  Today I turn 30.  I am feeling introspective.  These words inspire me as I move into a new decade.  enjoy....
Love, Rachel


Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
Without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. 
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Be yourself. 
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
Be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
It is a beautiful world.  Strive to be happy.

Family Weekend in N Cali

We spent last weekend in Northern California celebrating my Aunt Denise's birthday.   
We did wine tastings, beach walking, horseback riding, champagne toasts, and seafood eating. 
the birthday girl
So remote, we barely got cell service....which is both the best and the worst thing ever!
Jim photographs his shoes wherever we go :)
Aunt Denise and Uncle Fred
Getting serious with our champagne tasting

Early morning coffee and beach walk
 The weather was spectacular 
 Think we are related? 
My inner cowgirl

About to go for our trail ride.  Nervous...

Jim's horse seemed a bit small for him
The most amazing beach ride, felt like a movie scene

A Few of Our Favorite Bunky Mamas

Anna & her daughter Emilie

Words to describe this mother and daughter -  enchanting, delightful, and captivating.  
With her sweet smile and contagious laughter, 
Baby Emilie is angelic.
Anna's style is romantic, feminine, and thoughtful.  
Let's call it organically glorious!  
We cherish their gentle and peaceful energy. 

Jordana & her son Stone
Jordana is the most on-trend mom that we know!  She is the epitome of cool and we have a sneaking suspicion that her handsome son has her same natural sophistication, even at age 5!  
We are lucky to have this modern, not to mention superbly pretty, mom to encourage us here at Bunky to be innovative and fashion forward.  

Loydeen & her daughter Mila
Deenie and Mila are members of the First Family of Bunky (you'll meet Dad next month!).  
We are inspired by their closeness, kindness, 
and their overall hipness.  Deenie is chic and lovely and daughter Mila not only embodies those same qualities, but she adds her own artistic flair.  
We are honored to know these two brilliant 
and beautiful women.

Becky & her daughters 
Paloma & Sophia

One adjective comes to mind for this trio - fun!  
Every time we see Becky and her girls, they are on their way to do something exciting and carefree.
Absolutely adorable, the girls take after their mother's alluring and fashion forward style...always making their outfits unique and sassy by adding their own details and twists.  The unparalleled "it" girls!

Teresa & her son Keane
Teresa makes being a new mommy look easy and oh so fun!  Always stunning, Teresa's style is casually elegant and en vogue.  
We love watching her and Keane giggle and cuddle.  He is a patient little shopper and their laid back and incredibly loving attitude is so refreshing and happy.  Mommy hood never looked so rewarding!    

Janet & her daughter Mabel
Janet was one of our very first customers and we have been fortunate to befriend her and get to know her and her amazing family.  Janet is effortlessly chic - her style is classic meets bohemian - city boho!  Mabel already has that same dazzling smile 
and adoring charm.  Seeing these two together will melt your heart, it's witnessing true love in action! 

Kristl & her sons Beni & Charlie
Eclectic, witty, and gorgeous!  
That is how we describe momma Kristl. 
The loving connection she has with her 2 boys is truly breathtaking.  The boys are always dressed as cute as buttons, but how could they not be with a fabulously adoring, delightful, and charming mother like Kristl!
