First off, much thanks and hugs to my bestie Jaime Marshik, otherwiseknownas the most amazing and talented photographer I know. Jaime and her hubby, Charlie have a little blog. Y'all should go check it out... they have lots of fun doing neat things like planting gardens and taking crazy safaris in Africa.
So now we get to the pictures. Sorry folks it's a long post, but I don't care. I am so excited to debut my new space! If this doesn't scream Diva, I don't know what does. It is perfectly fabulous with out being overdone. More Kimora Lee Simons, less Mariah Carey. Check out how I got here from a few posts ago. And for those who are inspired, the source list is at the end.
