Holiday Recap

Holidays 2013 recapCashmere was all over the map this holiday season, from home in LA to Vegas to New York to Costa Rica and Panama! We spent our hard earned break with our families, friends, and co-workers... We're well-rested and back in the office but check out what we did for relaxation!kyle holiday recapMy holiday break consisted of friends, family, and food. Got to spend time with one of my cousin's kids, who just so happens to be a Kindle genius at age 1. I also spent a lot of time cooking for family gatherings, including this baked brie pie. For NYE, two friends and I hosted a loft party in DTLA for 100 of our closest friends. Wrapped up a relaxing break with a trip to LACMA to see the Metropolis II toy car exhibit by Chris Burden. –Kyle (Twitter|Instagram)Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 1.56.20 PMThe highlight of my holiday break was a family trip to New York City! The city was alive with Christmas lights, ice skating rinks and crowds bundled up in Times Square anticipating the start of a new year. We checked off a few touristy items on our list and walked around Central Park, visited the Guggenheim and Moma museums and saw a hilarious play titled "The Perfect Crime". The chilly air matched my imaginative ideas about what a true winter should be and we bid the city farewell just as a light snowfall began. Hope to see these beautiful brownstones and endless skyscrapers again soon! -Emily (Twitter|Instagram)1528546_10152238622026834_473525916_nOne highlight of my break was spending my birthday with friends! –Ryan (Twitter|Instagram)photo (1) (1)I spent my holiday break in Costa Rica and Panama!

It was great seeing old faces, and new-old faces.MMA: UFC 168-Weidman vs SilvaAfter a nice little get away trip to the bay, I came back down and went to Vegas, where I watched the weigh-ins at the convention center in MGM Grand.http://instagram.com/p/ic7eQ4ghLZ/The main card was Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva, it was exciting to finally get to watch and see these fighters in person.Unfortunately Silva lost, due to an intense and gruesome broken leg.Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 11.28.12 AMI had a great end to 2013, and I hope for the best in 2014. This is my first drawing of the new year. –Jane (Twitter|Instagram)http://instagram.com/p/inL2-xLnG3/During the holiday break, I truly enjoyed spending time with my family and friends, eating at my favorite places and attending Bulls games (my favorite being our win against the Celtics #bullsnation). –Misty (Twitter|Instagram)
