Happy New Year


We’re getting all gussied up to ring in the New Year in there here parts. What started off as a roadtrip to San Francisco morphed into a Oh-my-goodness-you-mean-you-didn’t-call-the-hotel-to-see-if-it’s-pet-friendly?! We made a pleasant detour (all on account of POLO), and we’re spending the weekend ringing in 2011. Together.

May this year bring happiness, joy, and love.

    Hi Jasmine,

    If your meatloaf is a 1/10 as good as your sumptuous wedding photos or your stunning website, then Gordon Ramsay better move over 🙂

    But seriously, I love your work and wish you and your family all the best for 2011.

    I am not by any means a pet lover; in fact, I’m allergic to cats and slightly allergic to dogs…but your posts of Polo are making me reconsider my ban against ever owning a pet…
