If you'll follow the link here, you'll see that visiting Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market at the Silos was a definite destination goal of mine. Well, a million years later, a good friend and I made the nearly 2-hour trek to Waco, TX earlier this week. Needless to say, we had a fantastic time. [...]
You'll see a definite theme. (See current needs #11 needs here.) Somewhere in the Maldives. Pretty please, Positano. Oh, hi, Oregon. You get my drift. My last real, bonafide vacation was in February 2016, when my girls and I went to that lovely trip to Paris. (Plenty of photos of that trip; search "Paris" and [...]
No, this post isn't necessarily about fall, although the last day of my trip occurred in September. But we're flashbacking today, so it's all good. Anywho, this past Labor Day weekend, I left on a jet plane to visit a good friend of mine who lives in Orange County, CA. Despite the fact that it [...]
Shall we? I want all of her clothes. Each. And. Every. One. Classy. Feminine. Elegant. Modern. Yes, Meghan. Yesssss Are y'all familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines? I'm sure your mother has also gently forced you to watch back-to-back episodes of Fixer Upper on HGTV when she knows that you're positively allergic to anything having [...]
...champagne on the balcony with the Le Tour Eiffel peeking at you from behind those trees. I want to go back. Maintenant. (Now.) Bon Tuesday. (p.s..: I have a whole board on Pinterest called "Meanwhile, in Paris". Feel free to follow. Click up top on the social media links and you're there.)
...she has given me life. Liiiiife. Ride your vélo in those awesome heels, my lovely Parisienne. Rock your style. I love this. Happy Wednesday.
After landing at Heathrow, my hostess and friend had already taken me to dinner, ice cream, a walk around Leicester Square (where I saw my love), and a bit of other sightseeing in between. Here on the Tube, finally headed to her home in Ipswich, was the face of gleeful jet-lagged sensory overload. Look at those [...]
Last weekend, my friend and I headed up to NYC to catch a concert by Damien Escobar, a violinist I discovered a few months ago. It was a nice chance to get out of town, even for a quick weekend. Digressing: have I discussed my love/hate relationship with the city? It's a fantastic place for the arts, [...]
...bow before your benevolent mistress. It was inevitable that I, a faithful lover of crêpes since my aunt introduced me to them when I was about six years old, would enjoy one of my favorite desserts in the country of its birth. I ate it in seconds, pausing only for one of my girls to snap [...]
I think this Parisienne embodies my future life in the City of Lights. In every way you can think of. Bursting with a thousand words, and I agree with every letter. Happy Friday, and bon weekend, mes amis.
