When I saw the CAbi collection at the wonderful Style Suite hosted by Momtrends and Savvy Sassy Moms, I couldn’t wait to start trying the pieces on! CAbi, or Carol Anderson by invitation, is a fabulous line of high quality designer clothes, brought to you at home by a trained fashion consultant. 

I was so impressed by the quality and fit of this marvellous collection, and I was even more excited when I saw what they have planned for Fall!

Photo credit Happy in Dole Valley

This post is the fourth in a new series of guest posts called The Place Where I Live. Learning a bit about the place people call home is a great way to get to know them better, and also makes a wonderful resource of insider knowledge for places you might like to visit one day. (If you love the place where you live, and would like to write a guest post in this series, please email me.) 

Lisa of Happy in Dole Valley is a wife and mother who lives in Washington state. She is a really lovely lady with a wonderfully positive outlook. I met her through the blog hops I host, and she has become a great blogging friend. I’m so happy that she has agreed to be part of The Place Where I Live series. So without further ado, over to Lisa!
