Back in the Saddle Again...

Roy Lichtenstein, Cold Shoulder, 1963, oil on canvas.
Los Angeles County Museum of Art.


We're back from our trip out west.
We spent most of our time in Santa Monica...

We were there for a wedding.

It took place here,
at sunset.
It was an intimate, lovely, simple, elegant ceremony. Perfect for two architects.

We were fortunate to carve out some time to eat some very delicious food:
We ate here,

And here.

It was delicious!

And we also saw quite a bit of art.
We went to the  LACMA, where I saw two pieces by Claes Oldenburg!

Giant Pool Balls, 1967, Fiberglass and metal.
Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The next day we decided to see if there were more Oldenburg sculptures in the LA area...

There was!

 (More on this later.)

We also went to the Getty Center, but that also deserves a post of its own.

I got some new shoes and also dipped my toes in the Pacific.

Needless to say, my weekend the perfect mix of relaxation and inspiration to get me going this autumnal season.

Fall Into Reality


I'm back on the blog, just in time for fall. It's been too long, but I'm back in Texas, getting adjusted to the United States and this heat again.

A few pics of the past month + some days...

In August, Mr. Wonderful and I took a trip through the best parts of Bavaria,

I bought a few new skirts...
(New blue skirt at the Heidelberg Castle in Germany).

Back in Texas...
We have been enjoying the last Dog Days of Summer.

We found a place to live.

 I started a new job and have been in search of the perfect cappuccino.

I've reconnected with familiar faces and places.

Baked cookies...

And made some things.

Tomorrow, I head west to LA LA land for a weekend trip and a wedding.

I'm pretty excited. 

I'm bringing lots of skirts.
