Okay, so I know you have just been DYING..

To know where that ceiling was painted.....DRUMROLL.....Anthropologie.  Yep, it is on the ceiling of the flagship Anthropologie store on Rittenhouse square in Philly.  Who would have guessed?  I bet you thought it was a museum or perhaps a church(those guys kind of look like monks?) A little searching turned up that the store (3-4 stories) with a glorious spiral staircase used to be an old mansion.  Pretty cool, I wonder who all those men were.

So I am just thinking and ruminating on an idea....but I really kind of sort of probably most definitely want to start a little side photography business shooting people.  I am thinking I might take on some free clients just to get the hang of how it works.  No poses or  fake stuff.  Anyone interested?  Dead serious.

And now for a refreshing recipe for summer... I haven't tried it but it sounds delishus(my tribute to Ramona Quimby).  Recipe found here.

Avocado and Grilled Corn Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette
4 Ears Corn, husk removed, brush with olive oil and lightly grilled, remove corn with sharp knife
1 Avocado’s, diced and sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
1 C. Tomatoes, red and yellow cherry variety or equivalent
1 Small red onion, finely diced
Add to a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
Cilantro Vinaigrette
6 T. Olive oil
2 T. Sherry vinegar
1 t. Garlic powder
2 T. Fresh cilantro, minced
½ t. Salt
10 Grinds of fresh ground pepper
Whisk together the ingredients. When ready to serve salad, add the dressing and gently toss. Crack open a Corona and enjoy!

Mmm the salad sounds delicious. I love avocado on salads! And you're spot on with the corona... maybe a pacifico or a red stripe would do :)
