Happy Friday friends! This week I’m back in my old hood of Venice, CA with my husband, daughter and her BFF on a little family vaca. Wow, what a time warp we’ve flung ourselves back into.
Some things have changed, and a lot of things we wish would have, just. haven’t. Traffic. Gas prices. Young, hot couples in the grocery store who we think look just like us in our mind’s eye 15 years ago…we just can’t compare.

Happy Friday to you all, today’s a shortened list, because hey! I’m on vacation…Next week we’ll be back with an extended fave list, I hope you’re all ready to also enjoy a GREAT weekend.
