So. Much. To. Say.

I'm back.  Man, it's good to be back.  There have been some major happenings and I have not had much time to keep up.  So here we go.  

I quit my job.
I'm starting a new and very exciting project.
My baby got a bike.
We went to Dallas.  I bought cowboy boots.  They rock.
It's wedding season.

More posts coming...can't wait to elaborate on all of it.

Mama Yo

There is not a day that goes by when I do not think about how lucky I am to have this woman in my life.  On a day like today, I thought I'd share a few reasons why...(ok, more than a few but I just couldn't stop) 

She is a pillar of strength. 
She is a ray of sunshine.  
She cannot go anywhere without making a friend.  
She'll talk to anyone... anywhere.  
She is an incredible cook.  
She has tiny little hands that are so sweet and nice to hold.  
She still plays with my hair.  
She taught me to be an independent, strong willed woman.  
She gave me wings to fly.  
Everything I know about spending two weeks on a houseboat, I learned from her. 
She is brave beyond belief.  
She could grow a garden out of an inch of dirt.  
She has a lovely singing voice.    
She taught me how to accessorize.  
She folded 800 paper cranes for our wedding.  
She loves unconditionally.  
She lets me call and talk about my problems and life incessantly.
She gives the best advice.  
She visits often.  
She loves movie dates.  
She loves to binge on chips and french onion dip.   
She is thoughtful beyond belief.  
She is an incredible Nana.  
She'd go to the ends of the Earth for someone she loves. 
She taught me to Go. Be. Do.  

Happy Mother's Day to the most special lady in my life.

got milk?

If you live in LA, and you have not been to MILK on beverly boulevard, you need to GO immediately.

It's one of my fav. places in the city.  It has this wonderful, yet modern, true ice cream parlor feeling to it.  And there are so many options of deliciousness that you can go back time and time again and try something different every time.  

You can have something traditional like a few scoops of housemade ice cream.  Or maybe you're in the mood for a homemade drumstick.  No?  Ok, then you must try the macaroon ice cream sandwich.  I'm not kidding that actually exists.  In fact, scratch everything else and just get that.  

GO to MILK, it does a body good.

new DO.

I cut off most of my hair tonight.  I feel lighter, liberated, youthful and spritely.  (is that a word?  I just made it one.)  

Self portrait on iphoto.      

Me thinks this new do just might equal new ME.  Wait and see.  Feeling very inspired to make some changes.
