Grateful Moments


Wynn Hotel Las Vegas Hotel Suite Entrance to Elevators
1. My heart flutters remembering this entryway on those nights walking to/from our hotel suite.

It's been a fairly gloomy week here in NYC accompanied by rain (the misty kind that falls sideways, interspersed  with heavy thunderstorms), which made trying to get back into a normal routine after being away on the sunny west coast tough, especially with jet lag from the three hour time zone difference. The one thing that's bringing me a little sunshine right now is I'll be hosting a friend for an intimate late afternoon high tea this Sunday at our place to watch the Oscars. Have a lovely weekend.

Sur Restaurant and Lounge West Hollywood California Water Fall Entrance
2. A lovely addition to Sur's lounge entrance that we appreciated since our last time there almost two years ago.

The District Restaurant Formerly Known As Duplex Los Angeles RIP Duplex :-(
3. Though I'm chagrined that The District (even more so after having tried it) has now replaced one of our old favorite spots known as Duplex - I am grateful for having experienced Duplex at least for a good couple of years while we lived in Beverly Hills. It was the place that introduced me to one of my favorite cocktails called Queen Bee. My heart is tightened knowing that they're no longer there. They had the best, friendly, accommodating and talented mixologists and vibe. I especially miss the inviting lounge area they had with the fur pillows. :-(

Villa Blanca Restaurant Beverly Hills Creme Brulee
4. Ahhh, an afternoon lunching at Villa Blanca can't be beat. The scene is just oh, so darling and of course the creme brulee. Nom nom nom...

Candlelit Fireplace + Fur Throw and Pillows Rainy Night At Home
5. An enchanting cozy night at home in front of a candlelit fireplace while heavy rain pounds on the windows.
