Back from Vacation Part:1

Good Morning,

Well I am so excited to be back home! Just got back yesterday afternoon. I love to go on vacation and get a change of scenery and weather for a little while. But it is always such a comforting feeling to come home, relax and sleep in my own bed again! I am sure most of you can relate to the feeling "there's no place like home!"

California was swell! It was quite a busy trip this time. Not much relaxing, but more running around with Universal Studios, Hollywood and the Cicada Club. However, we did manage to spend a day at Santa Monica Beach and then Mission Beach down in San Diego. The beach always settles me down. I love just laying on the shore, reading a book and listening to the soothing sound of the wind and waves coming in. While periodically looking up to watch my son enjoying the sand running through his fingers and the waves kick under his legs. That is a moment of complete contentment, joy and peace for me.

I also got to spend some time with my dear friend Ashley. We went down to Hollywood Blvd. to look at the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre and The Roosevelt Hotel. We then headed down to the Glamorous Beverly Hills Hotel. Only for a moment we felt like two Glamour Era rising starlets having lunch. It was completely fabulous! Of course I was filled with anticipation all day to head over to the incredible vintage store Playclothes in Studio City! That store is incredible! So many beautiful vintage items and everything was in perfect condition. I could only afford a few things, but just being there was amazing.

We then hurried home to get dressed in our full authentic roaring twenties regalia. The Cicada Club was awaiting our arrival! We sure had a roaring night as we sipped on cocktails in Art Deco bliss, mingled with fellow vintage enthusiast and of course danced the Charleston till our legs were on fire!

I decided that I was going to break this blog entry into two parts. Only because I have so much to tell and so many pictures to sift through. I will start by posting up a couple of pictures that I just received from the photo shoot I did in San Diego. These are only a few of the amazing Senorita set we had! (more to come) In the meantime I am going to work on organizing the rest of my vacation pictures to share with you all!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
