Sigh. My girls' weekend in the desert was so much fun I didn't want it to end. We talked for hours. I laughed so much that my face hurt. My friend Cari's home is so lovely and understated, just like she is. And being in her pool made me feel like I was in a David Hockney painting. Thank you again, Cari!
