{guess who I met yesterday??}

Well, what an exciting summer for us over in the Petunia household--meeting longtime blogger friends! On Friday I met our friend M. Lane whose blog The Epic I have been a faithful reader of for over a year! The Epic is a guide to living well with frequent stories about the many cities, hotels, and restaurants to which M. Lane travels. He is an excellent storyteller and writer, so if you've never ventured over to that side of blogland then you really should!
Here are a few pics from our day, although I cannot show you a picture of us because his identity is top secret! He is an extremely lovely person, though, and Lil Petunia and I thouroughly enjoyed meeting him at The Brazilian Court--a fabulous old hotel in Palm Beach--for Brunch.

The Brazilian Court is hidden by lush tropical foliage:

When the temperatures are not as sultry, it is nice to dine in the courtyard. We chose to be a little more comfortable inside:

Well as long as it wasn't Ricky Martin or an ex Menudo we're ok- because I totally would have to start stalking you so I can get the 411 ;)

Sounds like a faboo time- I went back to school shopping today- do you know that there are no 'kid' penny loafers out there anymore? I mean what gives? She has to wear black or brown shoes- and this year I was set on finding these for her because she's finally a size 7.

But no luck. Oh well...sorry off topic!

Very exciting!!! I had never read M. Lane's blog before and find him absolutely fascinating. I'm a HUGE jazz fan and his profile alone has me hooked. I'm looking forward to reading his past posts this weekend.Don't you love meeting new and interesting people!!!

Love it!! Glad you had a perfect day. Lil P is looking gorgeous as always!! I will so check out his blog!!
You have to check out my new public blog...minus names ..pictures... I think it will be fun. ..as you are right about not getting as much traffic when you are private. I will of course attempt to keep both. As close family and friends love to see pictures - but don't really comment.
Happy Monday!!
