Let’s play I never. First, I never wear the same thing twice in blog posts, which, if you think about it, is silly. In non-photographing-your-clothes world, people wear things more than once a lot. If we didn’t, we’d all be buying new everyday clothes at a rate faster than any of us could keep up with. So, I present the elusive blog post double wear. I love this dress because it’s backless and in Miami in the dead of summer, backless is like built-in ac.

Next, I never ever post candid shots of myself laughing like this. I don’t know why. I laugh all the time. Mills even pointed it out to me the other day. She said, “Mommy, you laugh at everything.” I do, but when I see pics of myself with my nose all scrunched up, it makes me cringe. And it shouldn’t. That’s my happy face. So I’m going against the grain and posting all kinds of stuff I never would today. Maria captured the moment right before we lunched at my absolute favorite spot in all of Miami. If you haven’t been to Mandolin yet, run, don’t walk. If you haven’t been in a while, run, don’t walk. If you save me a baklava or three I’ll run, not walk, to meet you there. Cheers.
