I had an amazing time visiting Tony last week. He and I met shortly after I moved to Arizona. This was during a time in my life when I was really struggling, emotionally. He was my shoulder to cry on when I was going through a really tough time in my life. Long story short: About a week after my 21st birthday, I married my high school sweetheart. Things didn't work out (it's a little more complicated than that, but I'll save the long story for another time). I got divorced about a year and a half later. I was young and naive.
Now that I'm happily married, in a healthy relationship with my best friend, I understand how great and rewarding a healthy marriage can be. I never had that with my previous marriage. I wish Jayare could have come with me to visit Tony, but Damien had school and it was easier for me to go alone to pick up my brother and his wife (who arrived to L.A. last Wednesday).
Button up: H&M
Tony is super stylish. He and I have an inside joke where we call each other Emu, in case you were wondering what the hell the title of this post was referring to. We had an Emu Photoshoot right outside of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. AND I finally got the chance to wear my new cape that I got from Amanda of Salvaged Strawberry (Thanks so much, girl! I love it so much!!).
Cape: gift (from Amanda of Salvaged Strawberry)
After visiting the Natural History Museum, we headed over to Venice Beach. On our way there, we drove by this really strange CVS. I guess it's just art, right? Anyone know the story behind that CVS?
I'll share some photographs of the exhibits from the Natural History Museum soon. Have a great Thursday!
