A Designer's Love for Furniture

Dad just bought a credenza for the studio above their garage.  I am jealous.  The credenza happens to be the furniture piece I have been currently lusting over.  This is a bit of a specific piece of cabinetry, one that I do not really have a use for at the moment.  And definitely not an appropriate space for.  I foresee the credenza cooly residing in a dining room with a vase of white lilies atop it.  Or perhaps in a hall.  The contemporary entertainment center can sometimes be interchangeable with the credenza, and truth be told it would make our 42" plasma look especially delectable.  But enough of the daydreaming, lets look at what is inspiring me.

Mastering the Art of French Cooking

Last night I went to Hollywood.  More specifically, Mr. Johnson and I went to the historic Hollywood Theater in the Hollywood district of our city.  The palm tree ratio was down from California, but there was still a fantastic feel to the place. 


We saw the movie Julie and Julia.  I had been wanting to see the movie for quite some time now.  But I had been waiting for it to come out at one of the many historic or pub theaters around town.  Cheap popcorn, good atmosphere, and maybe a microbrew...what more can you ask for?  I had a great time.  I though the story was a lot of fun and the film had many laugh out loud parts.  Julia Child is just so lovable, even when played by Meryl Streep (a woman I generally can't say the same for.)  The movie inspired me to cook French.  Somehow the processes to french cooking looked less intimidating to me then they have before, maybe it is because Julia's red dutch oven is so irrisistable.

Our Wedding Photos

Finally, wedding photos!  Of the many wonderful photos we have received, I had a difficult time choosing which ones to post on the blog.  I hope this reminds you, or gives you a glimpse, of the wonderful day.  Here is a look at July eighteenth, 2009!
