room with a view

Here’s just one view from where I hung my hat earlier this week while on a work trip. I know… life is hard! Working in National Parks is an amazing honor that I’m priveleged to have.

happy 40th birthday teddy

It’s been a wonderful 20 plus years of friendship! From the art studios at Lewis & Clark College to our thrifty young artist years filled with First Thursdays and Sunday Night Disco to trips to California and Vegas and the Alvord Desert. Happy Birthday Teddy!

what’s not to love

desert landscape + fragrant blooms + incredible facial + poolside breakfasts + fish tacos + mecca of mid-century modernism + hotel viceroy + kelly wearstler decor + world class tennis + rafael nadal + two of my best friends = dreamy weekend in palm springs. What a way to begin a year of celebrations for my 40th birthday!




Agassi + Nadal + Federer + Sampras at the Hit for Haiti fundraiser (watching a challenge which Sampras & Federer won)

Rafael Nadal practicing (he was wearing orange… i was wearing orange – must be a sign!)

Rafael Nadal on the stadium’s big screen (it was hard to choose between the views of Rafa or the views of the mountains)

Feliciano Lopez singles match (which he won!)

Jankovic + Yan doubles match (Jankovic went on to win the women’s singles title)
