soundbites + db are un-mix-y things

I apologize for the lack of a post on Friday {damn!  I was getting so good at posting everyday. Bah!}.  

I am going to be featured in the Denver Crave guide {available in stores this holiday — make a note of it ☺ — and my questionnaire was due Friday.  You’re probably thinking “why would someone as loquacious as db struggle with a questionnaire about her own design biz.  Well, I’ll tell ya — most of the responses were limited to 30 words!  How am I supposed to tell you why Coco Chanel is my role model in 30 words or less!?  Or why the Musée d’Orsay inspires me, again, in 30 words or less?  Queen of the soundbite I am not.

As my reward I am once again in my backyard with a bottle of Château La Rame Bordeaux Rosé and my favorite Hemingway.  Little Brown Pen totally inspired me to return to the classics.

 So, as soon as I publish this blog post,  I’m going to unplug, pour myself a glass of wine and read “The Sun Also Rises.”  Ah, perfect way to spend a Friday late-afternoon.  After all, it’s apéro time!

 I’ll close with a favorite passage from chapter 7 of The Sun Also Rises.  The Count, Brett and Jake are about to drink champagne while at Jake’s apartment :: 

“I say that is wine,” Brett held up her glass.  “We ought to toast to something. ‘Here’s to royalty.’”

“This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear.  You don’t want to mix emotions up with a wine like that.  You lose the taste.”

Brett’s glass was empty.

{note :: this was written on Friday…. not today.  Although, it is almost apéro time again!}
