A Father’s Request

Sol Reflection

This blog was written by my spouse, Adam Colette. I just adore him.   Folks give you plenty of advice when you’re about to have your first child, which is generally cool with me.

It was incredible because we got to talk openly about our fantasies related to things we would change or augment about our physical appearance. It was a FREEING, to say the least. No shame. No judgement (of self or others). … Read More

DENIAL

Sol Reflection

These are my very favorite denim shorts, converted from Lucky Brand jeans after years of wear. They have ZERO STRETCH and that’s how I like my cut-offs (stretchy shorts stick to your thighs and my gams need room to move!). Some years they’d fit just right and some years they hung off my hips.
