Have you seen Midnight in Paris yet? If not, you must- It's funny, It's beautiful and it takes place in Paris, I mean come on. I could relate to the movie quite a bit, because it deals with romanticizing the past {especially Paris in the 20's}. I have always had a thing for the 20's, and often thought I was born in the wrong decade. It just seems like a wonderful time to be alive- The flapper was redefining what it meant to be a woman, both the economy and technology were booming. Anything was possible. And, I just love the style. What I loved about the movie, is that it brought to mind an interesting point- even the people living in the 20's didn't think their own decade was the most amazing. No matter what period you fantasize about, the people of that time probably fantasized about another time. Do you romanticize the past? If so which period?

I just got back from a beautiful night in Ojai with the boy and some friends. We went to Ventura to see Broken Social Scene and then spent the night at my family's home. It is my favorite time of year in Ojai. The orange blossoms are in bloom and the whole town smells intoxicating. It is so important to get out of LA every so often, even if it's just for a night. I always return feeling sightly more clear headed and happy to return to my sweet little house.

Aren't these photos lovely? I adore them. I have always had a thing for the 1920's. My sister told me they reminded her of me. I think they look quite like Rose Byrne.
