I met Nancy five years ago, though It feels like we’ve been friends forever. Though our initial meeting was through work, we instantly had a connection that extended outside our client relationship. I had just moved back from NYC, and Nancy offered everything from her savvy sense of style and worldliness, to friendship and being a confidant . Her generosity extended from ‘girlfriend' pep talks and business advice, to lending a creative platform for me as a photographer and trusting my artistic voice.
I used to joke with her and say..“ Help… I don’t know how to dress West Coast style…! “ because she always looked so cooly put together in stylish yet comfortable layers that took her from garden nurseries and art openings, right down to going for her chemo sessions no matter how tired, or how long it took her to get dressed by that point.
I will miss our creative pow wows fueled by coffee, and our "Staff Holiday Party of 2" , which we'd laugh about because the ''staff'' was just the two of us having a great dinner at a fab restaurant!
We're fortunate to have so many places throughout Santa Barbara to remind us of you, so here's to you and all your layers Nancy.
Squeezing your hand tight- your friend Kim
