Have yall seen the HBO Documentary “Nothing Left Unsaid where the social icon, Gloria Vanderbilt, is interviewed by her son, Anderson Cooper. I am constantly drawn to it and seem to watch it every few months. I am positively in awe and fascinated by Gloria Vanderbilt. Her innocence, style, love and honesty is positively charming. You can tell through the hardships she has endured that she has done a tremendous amount of soul searching and is such a strong woman.
(And as a mother of a son, it is about the most precious thing ever to watch how much Anderson not only loves but ADORES his mother.)

We wanted a name that captured his homeland but were a little worried screaming something like "Castro" at a dog park on Capitol Hill might raise some eyebrows.
We are those crazy dog people. Which is fitting because our dog is crazy. I don't mean, quirky. I mean...he is on Prozac for separation anxiety and escapes most enclosures kind of crazy. Bless it. He is so sweet and so nuts.
I was cleaning out my phone the other day and came across some pics of our trip years ago to Key West and was laughing at how we just HAD to go see Hemingway's House because of our dog. Turns out, it was and is one of my favorite and most inspirational spaces I had ever seen. Read More
