I'm back feeling fresh like a watermelon mojito.
My vacation in Los Angeles was glorious, one of the best getaways I've ever taken.
I felt pure joy seeing my friend, reconnecting with her, and hanging with her two gorgeous boys and husband.
To add to the buzz I was already feeling, my girlfriend Kiki came to visit me last weekend.
We shopped downtown Chicago, smoked like we were high schoolers,
and caught up on happenings.
because for me, right now, it's all rainbows and sunny skies and bear hugs.
Since returning home I've been working on vignettes around the house.
I put a bar in the dining room that sits on a brass tray I found antiquing in Des Moines.
I think the tray was $9 if you can believe.
The red coral is from Pottery Barn and I'm still looking for lamps to flank either side of the buffet.
The monogrammed barware was a wedding gift of my mother in law's.
I also purchased a 19th century Italian mirror for $50 on eBay to go above the buffet,
but shipping it has been a pain in the butt so who knows when it'll be here.
