The Last Day

Other than the loss of our darling Tallulah Mae, 2017 was a very good year! Fun, family, travels, butterflies, yoga, rummage sales, cocktails...and lots more!

Wishing everyone the very very best in 2019!

Tallulah-Palooza Christmas Retrospective: Day 5

Dreaming of she is in doggy heaven, forever curled up in the comfiest chair with her tummy full of the most delicious treats. We miss you, Miss Mae!

Merry Christmas, everyone, from the cutest Santa there ever was!

May all your hope and dreams come true.

Mushroom Forest

 A LOT of mushrooms appear to have popped up in the mulch. Freaky (and cool).

Old School

 Wow! I know I've written about this before, but I LOVE these outdoors poinsettias...they remind me so much of old L.A./Hollywood (you see them planted in the courtyards of old bungalow compounds; they have probably been there since at least the 1920s).

This amazing plant is next to a late teens/early twenties house, so it was probably planted not long after the house was built. Love!

Casa de Pancakes

 We love a good old-fashioned breakfast restaurant/diner. This one LOOKED the was only so-so (and the coffee was, in the time-honored diner tradition, WRETCHED). Still, glad these places still exist and am happy to give them our business.

 Winter sunsets...they can't be beat. This got even more amazing down near the horizon, but I was driving (stopped at a light to take these!) and couldn't get a good photo.

(Look how floofy Ria is! It's amazing...there is a little teeny body under all that glorous fur!)
