Hong Kong has never been a bucket list destination for me. However, now that I am going, I'm really excited about it.
Believe it or not, I had never been to Kyle's store before! I have to say, it's pretty awesome. Where else do you get to go shopping while drinking a bottle of rosé from a straw? I admit I did leave with a few new clothes. Maybe that's part of Kyle's sinister plan? Ply us with alcohol until we’re slightly inebriated and vulnerable, and then surround us with gorgeous things we just HAVE to buy. LOL!
The awkward invitation aside, Hong Kong is still something I’m looking forward to. Despite our past differences, I believe in stopping Yulin, and I do support LVP’s efforts to do so. That's why I'm happy to spread the word with my “couple dozen followers.” Isn't Lisa Vanderpump cute?
I guess I can understand why some people view Erika as being cold. I've always seen her as being cautious. Given everything that happened between Dorit and Erika, I can only say Erika's instincts were right. Their relationship started off on the wrong foot and doesn't seem to be improving much, unfortunately.
Speaking of Erika, her mom is very brave to be so honest with her daughter about her imperfections as a parent! Raising children is never easy. As parents, we can only hope we send kind, honest, and responsible people out into the world. It seems that Renée has done just that. Even though she had Erika at 18, she has managed to raise a wonderful daughter. After taking care of her ill parents, she is now having a much-deserved renaissance and is starring in a play! I’m inspired. It’s truly never too late to follow your dreams. Good for you, Renée!
It was difficult watching Erika share such an important part of her world with us this week. I have always related to Erika. But now I feel that more than ever. Her struggles with her grandmother’s Alzheimer’s mirror my own past with my mother’s dementia. It is such a painful road to walk down. I know the ending of the phone calls closed a chapter for me as well. All I can say is Erika’s grandmother was a lucky woman to be so loved, and Erika was lucky to be loved by her.
On a different note, congratulations to Kim and the whole family for baby Hucksley’s arrival into this world. He’s beautiful!
Okay, Hong Kong here we come! Can’t wait to see what adventures this trip brings! *swallows hard*...I’m so full of crap.
Turns out there ARE some adventures I can definitely wait to have. And Hong Kong is one of them....
