Please don’t get me wrong, I am American and blessed to have been born in Los Angeles.  I was lucky to be born and raised in beautiful southern California.  But after living off and on for the past 18 years in Barcelona, Spain I do feel WAY more European and much less American.

When I was a young girl I remember, for whatever strange reason, the fun of going “underwear” shopping with my mom and sister in California.  Mom would tell us how many pairs we could buy and we’d spend AGES in the lingerie section looking at the styles and colours and patterns
