The Versatile Blogger Award


Kirby and I are so honored to have received the Versatile Blogger award from the lovely Jessie over at Mix and Chic. A million thanks and we've enjoyed getting to know you through the blogosphere. Below are seven things about us.

Books! We love to read and have a long list of favorite authors. Near the top is Haruki Murakami. Have you had a chance to read Kafka on the Shore or Dance Dance Dance?

Stripes. Kirby turned me onto stripes...and now I can't get enough. We both would love this blue and white striped dress for summer by J. Crew. Wouldn't you?

The Beach. Sun, sand and surf. It's hard to beat San Diego when it comes to beaches and we feel so fortunate to live in such a lovely place.

It's hard not to fall in love with the City of Light. We both did and you can probably tell by our many Paris posts over the past year.

Seriously if you have books and flowers...what else is there? Oh wait gotta have the wine.

The perfect clutch. Kirby has me beat by the number of gorgeous clutches that she owns. But I have my eye on this beauty from one of our favorite stores, Anthropologie.

Matt and Ian. Goes without saying really. But we feel so lucky to have found a couple of really rad dudes to hang with.

And finally here are some lovely blogs that we've been enjoying and think should be honored with the Versatile Blogger Award as well:
The Alternative Wife
La Boheme
Christina Elaine
Love It Like LuLu
Not Your Average Ordinary
Trust Your Style
Gallery Number 8
Things That Sparkle
Please check them out when you have a chance. You will be impressed. Trust us.
