  • These two. ❤️❤️❤️
  • Someone said our decor was eclectic and I was genuinely confused. I figured geometric metal bull heads were sort of de rigueur.
  • When you love Uncle Rand almost as much as Auntie DeeDee does.
  • When you don't have kids, but you make a beautiful paella together.
  • Tried to match my makeup to the portrait that Skye did of me because why the hell not?
  • We fancy.
  • Wonderful show with the most handsome man in the world. #osf
  • The meals that my beloved is able to make in tiny AirBnB kitchenettes never ceases to amaze me.
  • It begins! So excited, @osfashland!
  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
