the red dress

You know how sometimes you come across an item of clothing that’s so perfect, you can’t pass it up under any circumstance? Case in point – this dress. This red dress. I stumbled upon it at the Rose Bowl Flea, and the collar, the buttons, the fun print, the cinched waist, the flattering cut- all […]

dog days of summer

Ferris Beuler at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary. I managed to squeeze in some final summer adventures before the end of the season.

the in-laws visit

My in-laws (still weird saying that) visited last week for nine days (and yes we all stayed in our little one bedroom apartment). We love having our friends and family visit, so we get a chance to show off our new home and city! Whether we’ve visited these places or restaurants before, it’s always fun […]

It seems I’ll be catching up on this project for a few more days here on the blog. With my succession of wedding posts, I just couldn’t squeeze ’em in. We are really trying to enjoy every day in this new city before Whitney has to start work (as do I). We even have a […]
