Just some random chit-chat worthy things to mention….
Earlier this week, I bought these cool concrete initials for Zoey’s future bedroom (for when we move to our new place…whenever that is!) from Restoration Hardware. This is the type of random not-thought-out purchase that my husband would categorize as “junk.”
Lately, I’ve been mildly obsessed with fruit salads plus basil! Any combination of fruit salad tastes so much yummier with fresh basil. It must be a summer thing! The salad dressing with grapeseed oil instead of the usual e.v. olive oil takes it to next level. De-freakin’-lish!
It’s finally OFFICIAL! We bought our tickets to PARIS!!! I can’t wait to stuff myself with Fois Gras, Macarons, and Tea. And also bring some home to the Lovelies in my life (Annie, I won’t forget about your Neuhaus Createaur Chocolatiers / Paris City Collection).

After Paris? We are flying to Venice! I’ve always dreamt about riding in one of those Venetian gondalas through the romantic canals. AH!! via
After Venice, we are stopping by the breathtaking rolling hills of Tuscany! Can’t wait to go back and stay at one of the farms there. It’s literally one of the most gorgeous places on planet Earth. via
And I’m REALLY excited about our last destination...Lisbon, Portugal!! via
It’s almost like going down memory lane 4 yrs ago when the hubs and I went on our honeymoon to Paris, Milan/Tuscany, and Barcelona. This time it’s going to be super special b/c Zoey will be traveling with us (and a pain too, I’m sure!).
France, Italy, and Portugal…we are heading your way (in just a few short weeks)! Are you a local or have visited any of the above destinations? If so, would LOVE to hear recommendations as to what to see, do, and grub!
Happy Friday and a Wonderful weekend to all.
