I sent out this email. I'm sending it to you too.

"Hi everyone. As many of you already know, my precious dog Bello died last week. He was twelve and passed suddenly, but seemingly peacefully. By all accounts his life was full and long. But I am still sad. And so I have come to Santa Cruz, to cry and swim and eat figs. I'm feeling a little better each day. I am also in Santa Cruz to oversee production of the Filly Foundation Collection- a permanent collection of your all time favorites. Pretty exciting. And of course I can't come into town without bringing enough backstock for a Friends of Filly gathering. It is not as much as you are used to... my mind was elsewhere when I packed for this trip. But there is enough. And so lets gather. And celebrate relationships.

Friday, September 7th 6:30- 9:30pm 800 Duboce Ave apt 301 Cross Street Divisidero Ring to get buzzed up San Francisco
