art alive

last weekend was our annual girl's trip to the san diego museum of art's, art alive.  every year a host of local florist come to the museum and create their interpretations of the museum's permanent collection.  it is really a feast for the eyes.  this years event smelled especially sweet with the whole first floor covered in white lilies and tuberose.

after the event we enjoyed a picnic lunch on the balboa park grounds, then visited the san diego art institute gallery to see one of karen's paintings on exhibit.

next on our list... extraordinary desserts.  we each had something totally decadent.  if you haven't been, this is a must stop location on 5th street.  i had the triple chocolate mouse cake; it was divine.  and does anything you eat get prettier than this? 
a few of us stayed the night at the westin gaslamp and ventured out for a delicious italian dinner.   the following day we ate breakfast, took a walk to the bay and then took the coastal drive home.  all-in-all it was a fabulous time.  i am already looking forward to next year.
