Feeling Frenchy...

This morning I can't stop listing to my Edith Piaf station on Pandora, "Sympathique" by Pink Martini is especially a favorite. It is actually a cool over cast day here in old Texas, its Friday, and I imagining my self instead sitting at a little table out side a cafe in Montmartre sipping away at a delicious little latte, while all sorts of fashionable sets amble the streets before me.

However I shall just have to settle for La Madeleine's (not such a bad settle!) a blackberry cream cheese croissant, and a raspberry mocha, and wearing my Rodarte navy striped shirt.

I'll let my mind drift away to remembering the lovely little gem of a film up there!! Seriously I am late on the band wagon but please go see Midnight in Paris!!! It is brilliant in every way!!

We have been here two days now and wow...we have already been out and about exploring and found some gems of places like my fave so far Highland Park, (More on that later!)....Here are some apartment Pics and a little area we uncovered earlier this morning! For now It's back to Job hunting and homesteading.

Bit of Summer Reading

In my search to find the perfect "summer reading" book, I stumbled upon this little gem of a historical fiction. I devoured it in two days!! With the help of a trusted musical friend Dario Maianelli......this soundtrack was actually perfect for this tragic yet very worthwhile read. Am I the only one who has to have a soundtrack to read to?

oh my BHLDN!

"When you wish upon a star"..........
I guess Disney are not the only one's who can make dreams come true. When I checked my email this morning i had no idea it would become the high point of my day. As Penny Lane says "It's all happening". If you google BHLDN you will find that much to the rejoicing of brides and non-brides the like everywhere the good people behind Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are launching a new Wedding boutique. It opens on February 14th, how appropriate no? Well enjoy these few sneak peaks from the site. Go to and get signed up for email updates. Happy drooling.
