Retrograde, Schmetrograde

Those who know me will vouch for my excessive organization skills and attention to detail. And yet, last week I don’t think a day went by when I didn’t send my husband a text along the lines of, “I forgot deodorant today”, “I left my lunch in the fridge today”, “I forgot to shave the 80 pound gorilla”.

A week with my Cousin

Despite all that good time jolly stuff and great food and wine we managed to enjoy ourselves. Rob reminded us of something we know but don’t always remember (I blame traffic and stressful stuff like jobs): that everything in life can be and should be fun.

And now for another word on marriage

I say, bring on the gay weddings and please invite me. My favorite kind of cake is chocolate… just saying.

Delicious Italian Food!

If you live in Los Angeles you probably shouldn’t go there. I don’t want to have trouble getting a table, it’s not a large restaurant. But if you’re visiting from out of town we will absolutely take you there. You’ll love it.
