June! Month-in-Review served with a Classic Hollywood twist...

Woof. Things are achieving record heat here in sunny SoCal.

I love this sentiment: 

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

I love this sentiment: 

“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.”

End of February! Modern headlines from the month served with a Classic Hollywood twist...

Was February a rough month? Romance (or the lack thereof) is complicated. And Valentine's Day can be a dangerous holiday, fraught with self-attacks and bottomless wishing wells. But its never to late to re-commit to loving yourself, ultimately means becoming your happiest-get-out-there-and-make-the-world-a-more-awesome-place self.
