Three Books to Read this Fall

Although sitting on the dock in the warm summer sunshine with a fancy cocktail in hand is a great way to enjoy any book; I prefer reading in the Fall. Sitting by the window with a view of the red, orange, and yellow leaves, a book propped up on the fuzzy blanket covering my legs, an aContinue reading “Three Books to Read this Fall”

The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!

As I sat down at La Bamboche with my fluffy cappuccino I realized that I was about an hour early for my final wedding dress fitting. MY FINAL WEDDING DRESS FITTING. Which meant that I would get to take my dress home because it’s so close to the wedding that there’s no point in keeping atContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!”

I explained that it is the name of myContinue reading “Conversation with a Stranger”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower

  Words I never thought I would put in a sentence (and actually mean them): I loved everything about my bridal shower. Let’s be clear, this is not because I didn’t think we could pull it off, but because I have never been a huge fan of bridal showers. Although I’ve had fun at allContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower”

Serrano Goes to Cirque! 

I spent last Sunday afternoon in the VIP tent at the Cirque de Soliel! My bosses took the entire Serrano Imports staff to the Luzia show as a little staff appreciation gift. We were given our VIP passes and escorted into a dark tent filled with with cozy sofas, Mexican decor, hot and delicious hors d’oeuvres, and womenContinue reading “Serrano Goes to Cirque! “
