ANAMUonline.com launched yesterday and to celebrate, my friend Caitlin helped host a little get together with family and friends. Thank you to those that came, it was so fun to share everything with you in person! All of the online/email love from those not present has been amazing too - thank you! With the site up and the party in the bag, today was a day of rest. Well, its rest in my book :)
Began with the second Sunday of the month ritual, attending the Rose Bowl flea market, AKA heaven on earth. Bought several scarves for new bags and also left with some items for my niece-to-be, Juliana. Since my sister and brother in law just got back from Hawaii (very smart before Juliana arrives in December!), I wanted to commemorate her first vacation. Scored this great hand-painted, porcelain hula girl with a real grass skirt - you dont see them like this anymore- and picked up an old Mason Jar to put sea shells in. I cant' wait to go to the beach and collect them with her...she's not even born yet and I'm already the biggest sucker!
Post flea market activities took us to the skies above El Monte for an afternoon flight. Joe has been flying for years and today I got to be co-pilot! I got the hang of it right away but did have some hesitations with turning left for some reason. Regardless, it was seriously a cool feeling to hover above with no one else around but us. A few more times and I think I may just get my wings!
