Highway 1 Revisited

On Friday my beau and I are taking off on a long-awaited West Coast vacance. We're spending a week in sweet old San Francisco, sprinkled with a couple nights under the stars in Big Sur. These views make me wish I could blink my eyes and be there already...

Paris vs. New York: The Book

You've probably glimpsed Vahram Muratyan's beautiful graphic comparisons of Paris and New York during your travels around the interwebs. But have you seen the book?

J'adore. T'would make a great gift. The postcard box is pretty great, too.
