Peter Som for Kohl’s! Designer duds at super inexpensive prices.

We love a good deal.  We are sample sale mavens and love scouring flea markets and vintage shops for treasures.  Perhaps it is the training we received as girls with our grandmother Sue Sue who loved TJ Maxx and taught us to love the thrill of discovering the discounted gem amidst a heap of cheap ...

By |March 5th, 2014|UNCATEGORIZED|

The last stop on our holiday family road trip was again, Paso Robles as it is the perfect halfway point between LA and San Francisco.  On our way home, we stayed at Hotel Cheval, a charming, quaint and quite luxurious boutique hotel right on the town square.  I loved our room on the second floor ...

By |February 19th, 2014|UNCATEGORIZED|

The drive from LA to San Fran is about three hours longer than you would want it to be.  Especially with the baby in tow, cruising straight through was just not an option and it's always fun to make an adventure out of a road trip with several stops!  Paso Robles is the ideal mid-way ...

By |February 17th, 2014|UNCATEGORIZED|

Long overdue and yet a road trip along the California coast is frankly delightful no matter the time of year...  SO, here goes. I am a big fan of being away for New Year's-- preferably somewhere remote without a lot of people, urbanity, traffic, noise, etc.  That may surprise some of you as I am ...
