The start of Seattle summers can be frustrating; the weather makes for a bipolar wardrobe. Those layers that you might have packed away in the hopes of sun and skin need to be kept close. I keep this cozy long sweater jacket and my camo cargos tucked in the back of the closet on the top shelf, just in case.
Just so you know, I can hardly look at this photo. And sometimes we all need a reprieve from fashion to take a look at life. CJ has to go and his little one will miss him dearly. The wife that he leaves behind, P, was kind enough to let me post this shot. I am grateful to know this man for over half of my life. He gives so much and his family sacrifices. But he can look at this photo everyday and know that he has so much waiting for him, his family is proud of his courage and that love is never camouflaged.
