for some odd reason,
every time
 i
 attempt
to do my
holiday shopping
online

i get
side-tracked
 &
start looking
into
travel ideas...

(what do you think that means?)

i really enjoyed the
recent article in
lonny mag
called
"a tale of two cities"--

featuring
the two
locations
of
the hotel

  j.k. place.

i can't tell which i
would love more...
florence
or
capri?












last may 

el jeffe & i
had our own
tale of two cities

when we 
 travelled to the 
amalfi coast 
and
 the dreamy













where one man
 (a waiter named raffaele)
arrives promptly at
5:00 p.m. every evening
&
 lights

450 candles by hand

&
then

when all the guests have left
(el jeffe & i being last)

he gently extracts the remains of
each and every candle
so that their containers can be carefully washed and
new candles placed within –
ready for lighting the next day.

amazing.

******

then we were off to the
eternal city
and the
charming

villa laetitia --

a b&b owned by the fendi family









it was wacky & wonderful.


now back to shopping...
