Who else is going to Rhonda?
I’ll see you there!
Ha ha, thanks for sharing Zach!
You mean in this time of economic despair, this hole dug by both parties, fiscal responsibility makes sense? Blasphemy!!
A few photos from Saturday’s excursion to the Los Angeles Flower District.
I swear it’s the only place downtown that doesn’t smell like piss. I stepped out of my car and fragrant flowers wafted through the air. It’s go time.
The prices here are unreal. Worth the morning drive. I bought two orchids for $17, one a double bloom. I’m going back next weekend to buy flowers for MADE and the office.
Hit me up if anyone wants to go with. Make sure to bring cash and remember to bargain. And guys, here’s a hint: ladies still love flowers. Score yourself some bonus points and buy her a bouquet.
I can attest, Yakima is definitely not the Palm Springs of Washington. But speaking of my home turf, it was so nice to spend a few days in the desert with family.
My Great Aunt Virg and Uncle Jim stay in Palm Springs every January, so when I realized the quick drive, decided to make a weekend out of it. I drove over Friday after a looong, hectic day of work. We stayed up late, catching up, talking about LA, work, life and its adventures.
When I woke up Saturday morning, it hit me. I am indeed here. What’s a girl to do? Eat. Sleep. Shop. And that I did.
My cousin Kevin also came into town, which upped the fun even more. Saturday evening the four of us went to my other aunt and uncle’s, who are staying down the street. We noshed on appetizers, made a couple drinks, then did dinner at Pomme Frittes. As always, another late night with food, wine, fires and family.
A weekend retreat was exactly what I needed. Time to relax with family, escape the city and (slightly) get away from technology. I always have a great time with Aunt Virg and Uncle Jim. I can only hope when I’m their age (early 80′s!) I’m still wine sipping, food munching and globe trotting with the love of my life (I need to find him). Thank you so much for a great weekend you two, love you!
