Outlander is a story that is appreciated well beyond the boundaries of traditional entertainment. For us, it will always be more than a book or television series. Diana Gabaldon’s stories speak inherent truths we all can relate to within our own lives. The journey she takes her readers on allow moments of reflection, enable deeper understanding of relationships, offer hope, and, most of all, encourage strength and resilience. It is easy to identify with each character in some way – perhaps through the emotions they expressed, the choices that they made, loss they experienced, or in the traces of humanity that easily come to life through the poetic words of Diana Gabaldon.
Have you ever found yourself exploring a new city and then become awestruck by an unexpected finding? That is what happened to me on my most recent trip to San Francisco, California. This trip was meant to be a getaway to a big city, introducing my children to all the joys of San Francisco. I relished the opportunity to share my favorite activities and expose them to new experiences. From cable car rides to appreciating architecture and art – we found ourselves making memories that would last a lifetime! However, it was our interest in exploring a quaint street in the heart of Union Square that led me to one of my most memorable experiences. I found myself facing the back entrance to the world-renowned Britex Fabrics!
Who motivates you? I find myself constantly inspired by many people around me, as well as the creative minds behind the authenticity of Outlander itself. From costumes to set design, I continue to be amazed by their innovation, drive for their craft, and their willingness to share their vision and inspiration of specific pieces with fans.
Watching the process from afar has been a pleasant journey. However, when I had the opportunity to meet someone I greatly admire, I was filled with excitement that was beyond words. Needless to say, I struggled to maintain my composure during a brief conversation with one person who absolutely moves me: the beautiful and talented Terry Dresbach.
