dior heels

gone are the days i choose to run around at work in 4 inch stilettos (except for my manolo bbs of course).  i tried these on at the dior boutique while waiting for an appointment, and fell in love.  the 3 inch feel is so much more manageable, yet still very elegant.  the black swiss dot is so fresh and looks great with tights.

dining area

my post from the holidays made me realize that i never did a dining area reveal.  while this area will still change over time as we collect more art from our travels, it makes me ridiculously happy to eat at as is.  the lamp is from drew barrymore’s collection for walmart and fits in perfectly without blocking the art.

napa food

the most important part of our recent trip to napa was probably what we ate and drank.  everywhere we went, even the most casual diner, served dishes that blew our minds.  perhaps it is all the access to fresh, local food?  i mean where else in america can you get perfectly ripe strawberries in december?  below are some shots of our favorite dishes.

napa snapshots

napa is one of the most breathtaking places in america i have had the pleasure of visiting.  we experienced a range of weather, but even in the rain, it was stunning (and the rain brought out a gorgeous double rainbow).  the weather was a perfect 55 – 60 degrees, and the range of vegetation was amazing.  i sincerely hope we have the opportunity to go back soon.
