I've finally watched the "Coco Before Chanel" movie which I loved of course. Two things have come of it directly. First, I've decided to give striped shirts another try and found one that doesn't make me look like a toddler. Second, I've gone out and purchased two succulents for the planters in my driveway because the ones potted at the estate of Etienne Balsan were so inspiring. Mine are aloe and will take a while to get as big as I'd like them to be right now but I can be patient. I think.
