Somebody.... anybody.... if you have a space like either of these, will you please invite me over for dinner?

I swear food must taste better if you're eating it in these beautiful and simple surroundings.

Also, I have finally given my white giraffe a name: Russel (formerly known as Mr. White).

It's raining a lovely rain in Los Angeles today. It's supposed to continue for a few days which makes me so happy.

And now I am off to the museum for some Friday afternoon art. Have a good weekend!
