"In characters, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity"- Henry W. Longfellow. I truly love this quote and try to live by it. This post will be short and sweet as I am packing to go to LA for a week. I am really excited to stay in West Hollywood again, see some familiar faces, sit by the pool and hopefully meet some new and interesting people. If you are from LA holla, who knows maybe we can have a drink or two. I need to decide what to pack, I know that is a good problem to have.
