Hallo

Hello,

San Francisco is extremely foggy in July and August, try not to come visit the city during this time. You'd think we would plan our trips during this time, but it seems we haven't quite learned our lesson. It seems we are always going to a wedding in June in the UK, and that uses up our vacation time. The rest of the year is pretty spectacular in this city!

Man, the opening ceremony for the Olympics was very dazzling! Watching this always makes me want to get fit. If only it could be on all the time for inspiration.

So I've been asked to design the interior for another restaurant in SF! This time it's a gastro pub, which is basically a pub setting with delicious organic food. What I"m most excited about it the back garden. There aren't a lot of outdoor restaurants in the city, so it's a real jewel. It's the same team that I worked with for Mamacita. www.vintage415.com Very excited about this new venture. Just trying to figure out how to balance baby tending and designing at the same time.

Hello fellow traveler. Long time no speak. I have just the place for you to visit: Mendoza, Argentina. My friend's parents bought a vineyard there and let me tell you the views are amazing, and the food and wine is even better. Go during harvest season (feb, march) to get grapes off the vine! See link for my pics:

Other than the flight, it is very inexpensive there as the dollar is strong in argentina.

Take care,

ilene

Christie,
I haven't visited in a while, so I was excited to see all the updates and blog posts! Congrats on being a new mom!! You have so many exciting things going on in your life right now!

If you're still looking for baby advice, the most helpful tidbit I can give, by far, would be to read the book, "Disease Proof Your Child" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. If you haven't yet heard of it, you will be amazed! Dr. Fuhrman is the most credible doctor I know of - always seeking out the most credible, peer-reviewed studies to base his work upon. His advice isn't always what people want to hear, but he cares more about giving people the truth. His book may very well keep your baby out of the doctor's office and help simplify your life as well! :)

Oh! If you haven't yet heard of green smoothies - check those out too! If you only do one thing all day for good nutrition, this is the thing to do! And a side bonus, these are also amazing for your skin! :)

Have fun working on the restaurant design!

You are still very missed on Days!!!
