The Finishing Touches

I am determined to finish this and I promise I will never put you through this again.

The Dress,  that month of work-on top of all the other work.

Putting together a wedding on your own...a whole other  part of you just  rises to the surface.  It's kind of like that movie "Basket Case".  When else do I go to Macy's... to shop???? ( I can't stand Macy's) and buy 5 pairs of shoes just to try?  Then buy 2 more on 34th street in a fit of panic. (6 hours of returns) When else does my better-half get even more involved than me in planning a party menu & insisting on the (amazing) chef & trekking over to Chinatown on the subway to buy,  lord knows, how many pounds of shrimp,  so the menu is absolutely perfect?

Not a lot of places in life where collaboration is quite like this, this is theater.  Starting  at the top...

... another shape, but not what I am going for
perfect style tor my Titania like dress... but do they have the color???
Aldo Shoes, which amazingly makes shoes in my size.
a pouf to match my Kelly at Santanica
And of course the chef, the wonderful John Berninzoni, formerly of Chanterelle.

When Dreaming makes it So

This is the point where I click my heels three times and say "I want to go warm…"

I dream of these ramparts
I want to be a roman cat chasing the sun
I want more places to look like this
and this...

I want to wander these halls
...and  play here
I want to lose myself here
...and here
 I will easily cast spells...
and always have fun with my food!

More warm thoughts of exotic places...

And if I can't have the beach,  I would be very happy here....
