  • a few years ago, my roommate, and friend, denise bought me these legwarmers for christmas. i loved them...kinda. they were lovely and soft...but i hadn't worn legwarmers since i was eight...and didn't really have plans to.

    this morning, while getting dressed, i searched for something extra that i could take with me to the studio and throw on, to keep my legs warm, when i left in the evening. i found the legwarmers, tried them on, and they were perfect. a moment of unexpected magic.

    for me, these are not legwarmers. they're a reminder that sometimes good friends can anticipate your needs before you even have them.
