That's me in front trying to escape the donkey smell.

Baklava for breakfast baklava for lunch.
Something delicious for dinner, then baklava for dessert.

Sad to leave.

Wow, I've been gone WAY too long!! Life has gotten rather hectic in the last month which is why I haven't been blogging. But I'm back (yay!) with updates and more posts on our honeymoon coming up shortly.

In the meantime, don't you just love this print? I tend to have a problem focusing on the here and now. I always worry about the future or fret about the past and nothing ruins the present more than thinking about the past or worrying about the future. This is a good reminder that all we really have is right now. I need to live in the now and love it.

When I first saw "Drive" I thought it was okay (I had to close my eyes for the outrageously violent parts) but the movie stayed with me. I thought about it all week and the intense emotions it evoked in me. So then I saw it a second time - and I never see a movie twice... it's that good. One of the best movies I've seen in a very long time. Go see it. Then get the soundtrack, it's just as amazing as the film.

Bright nails...

I wondered into J.Crew the other day (only to browse) and found this stellar shade of nail polish. It's so gorgeous I had to purchase it...along with a cool bracelet (or two...okay three). I know, I should've known better than to go into J.Crew thinking I wasn't going to buy anything.

Our Honeymoon: Athens, Greece...

Eating at our first authentic Greek restaurant.
The Parthenon
When they dug the metro they found graves and had some on display. Pretty crazy to see.
Poseidon's Temple
A bird who posed for the camera.

Athens was wonderful. We were fortunate enough to stay with family friends who live there and it made the whole experience unforgettable. We ate lots of Greek food, learned how to say "thank you" in Greek..."σας ευχαριστώ" (I've since forgotten because it's in Greek) and spent endless hours roaming the museums and temples. We also watched the Royal Wedding live and I came down with a sinus infection (yuk) but was so well cared for I got better in no time at all. 

Up next Santorini....

Simple Things...

If you like pie and are in the Los Angeles area I highly recommend going to Simple Things Sandwich & Pie Shop. They have banoffee pie. Enough said.

Our Honeymoon: The Algarve, Portugal...

After arriving to the Algarve we found ourselves in a British cafe (if you've ever been to the Algarve this won't come as a shock). I think most everyone in the Algarve is British, which is fine by me. British people = British food and I love myself some British food as seen here

Enjoying a glass of wine with my prawn cocktail.

Sweet family hugs

 English breakfast

It rained. A lot. The upside...with the rain came the rainbows.

Next up, Greece...
