Sweatpea. I have already started her B-day and X-mas shopping. They are around the same time (12/22/46). She is currently in remission from her second bout with C. I have to cherish every day with her. That is what I get from being married for 30 years.
Your other half probably has your B-day presents purchased, but hasn't told you.

Glad to hear she's in remission. What a blessing! I hope you two get to cherish many, many more days together!

We've only been married for 5 years. My birthday is 12/9 and we're expecting baby #3 on 12/12. So, I might have a baby as my birthday gift. ;)

Let us know how she likes the bag .... and again, I'm happy to hear she's in remission!

I have purchased 3 Epiphanie bags: Lola, Belle and a Stella.

I LOVED my Belle. I could carry a gripped 5D2 another lens and a bunch of bags of little stuff (lens cleaning, caps, white balance cap and color checker passport, etc.). I trashed the bag on accident, and have missed it every day.

The Lola is great for taking just a body and small lens and a wallet. Anything more and it's hard to get it in/out. Lovely to carry, feels great, looks great and would never be suspected as a camera bag. Very nicely made.

I don't like the Stella. It's too short. I can't fit a gripped FF in it and zip it up. I feel like the shallowness puts my gear at risk. I do carry it occassionally, but I hate that the top is open - it's just asking for trouble.

For reference, I also have an Original Kelly Moore and a Jo Totes Tote, plus a butt-load of other bags (Lowepro and Think Tank). I am a bag freak.

I have a Kelly Moore Mimi and love it, but only carry it when I take a small amount of gear.

I just bought a Kelly Moore 2 Sues and LOVE IT. Although I can't carry a gripped FF, I still love it. It's tall, so it zips even with a 70-200 f/2.8L standing up. The black pleather is very pliable (the brown pleather version sucks). The insert comes out. The exterior pockets are very well thought out.

Love the 2 Sues enough to take the grip and L-bracket off my 5D3, and to be more selective about what gear to take.

I'm thinking about getting a Two Sues (or maybe one of the other Kelly Moore bags, still thinking on it). It's taken me over a week and I'm only just halfway through the 363 page 'show me your bag' thread, trying to see if anyone has the same camera bag issues I have.

At the moment, my biggest bag is the Lowepro Slingshot 200. It's an OK bag because it doesn't kill my back but it's not the easiest bag to use for frequent lens changes. Furthermore - and this is the reason I'm looking around for more of a 'handbag' kind of camera bag - there's no room for any of the other stuff we women like/need to take with us. To wit: sunglasses, reading glasses (yeah, I'm getting old), tissues, lip balm, house keys, wallet, iPhone (plus anything else I can't manage without!)

Will I be able to get the stuff I generally cart around, from day to day, into the Two Sues bag as well as my 50D with lens attached and another lens plus flash?

Thanks for any help, lady POTNers.

Just wanted to let you all know that my wife loves her Epiphanie Fuschia Clover bag. She has also discovered their web page and is now looking at the new bags for next year's present. She now wants something to hold her iPad, as well as her camera stuff. oh well. Pics to follow in the next few days.

My wife started checking out the Epiphanie web site, when she received her birthday present last week, and informed me, that, Epiphanie is offering 15% off their bags through 31Dec12. "The London burnt orange looks nice. hint hint." There goes more money, but she is worth it.

I don't know much about these, but I've seen them advertised online before. I've never seen one in person. Anyone with experience with Jill-e?

General reviews on Amazon seem good.
