In which the author tells you how to run your life -- or at least how to make the most of the fun parts of it.

For instance, inside these pages you will learn how to weather a mortar attack in good spirits; how to avoid booking yourself on the Internet into a bed and breakfast full of twee quilts and dusty tchotkes; and how to plan a dinner party that will stun your guests with deliciousness and style and not destroy your will to live with the amount of work you have to do to pull it off.

These are things I know firsthand, and things people who know me often ask me about (though I usually just book them into bed and breakfasts myself -- identifying ruffled death traps is an acquired skill). I am almost always right about everything (food, style and travel-related, anyway, and often many other things) and if everyone would just do as I say, dinner would taste better, cupcakes would not be dry, your parties would be more fun (for you), and mortar attacks... well, they always suck. I can't do anything about them.

*except laundry. I can't manage my own laundry, much less yours.

In case you missed 'em : Cherry Blossoms

I'm not sure how ANYONE could say they missed them because traffic was tied up around the monument for WEEKS and it was cheek-to-jowl down along the tidal basin. I think everyone was THERE. The Boyfriend took these photos -- he's good.

This one is the tree in front of my house...

And the view from inside my attic bedroom. Could you die?

This one is from last year ... taken with a blackberry. I like how abstract it is and the colors remind me of Maxfield Parrish.
