BIRTHDAY: Gateway Arch

The iconic monument that makes the Saint Louis skyline instantly recognizable.  The Gateway Arch, the nation's tallest monument, is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial honoring Saint Louis' role in the United States' expansion westward with the Louisiana Purchase.
The Arch was completed on this date in 1965, designed by architect Eero Saarinen

Stop by the Museum of Westward Expansion on Saturdays and get a little history lesson from puppet Napoleon

WEAR: Pajamas


One of my favorite lines in Roman Holiday...
Audrey Hepburn as Princess Anne says, "I hate this nightgown.
I hate all my nightgowns and I hate all my underwear too...
Why can't I sleep in pajamas?...Just the top part."

Try new brand Sleepy Jones
or the lovely silk pjs from Olatz Schnabel.

Her wish comes true!
