This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Red, White, Blue & Blooming

July, 3, 2015

In my neighborhood, people have been sprucing up their gardens in honor of July 4th. I’m a native of the USA, with neighbors from Slovania, Turkey, Japan, Greece, and more…but that doesn’t stop them from joining in the spirit of independence, so I just had to make a trip to the local nursery too. To get in the mood, I wore my red, white and blue Tory Burch top.

Flowers A

The plants were so beautiful that I wanted to buy them all.

Flowers B

Since that was impossible, I decided to just relax and wander around for awhile.

Flowers C

I have found that no matter what challenges life throws my way, the world always looks better with a trip to the nursery.
