    hey friends,
    i’m literally still full from last night’s spanish tapas birthday extravaganza at our favorite neighborhood resto, zarzuela – chorizo in red wine, garlic and white wine prawns, serrano ham, paella valenciana, the most divine sangria on earth and a dessert feast marie antoinette would be envious of! my sweet birthday boy had a silly night with his best guy pals and his best girl and even got a birthday serenade by our wonderful  friend and zarzuela co owner, arturo. i think he was an opera singer in a past life!
    as for today, it’s moving day at work and my team and i are moving next door to the sunny corner office. i’m over the moon and we’ve been dreaming up ways to make our new work home a more whimsical, inspiring place….
    thank goodness for 20×200! it’s my go to shop for fresh, fun art pieces…for only $20! 
    so here are some of the pieces that would make our place sunny and shiny…balloons, sparkles and maps!

    here’s to adding a little more color in our lives…

      Oh, I love these! If I could I would make it more inviting and not so stuffy and boring. I think i’m due for a big colorful canvas!

      Spanish tapas is definitely one of my favorite meals! And nothing beats really well made Sangria. Do you like white or red besT? If I could redue my office the first thing I would do would be to paint it a subtle soft grey. Then I would put in different sitting chairs with a colorful yellow textured pattern. Pair that with a few creative light green, red, and grey prints and some B&W photos and there you go! Thanks for sharing! Love the look of your blog by the way. Following!
