Happy Friday, everyone. It’s hard to believe October is here, and we are no longer supposed to wear white. Obviously whoever invented the no white after labor day rule never lived in Los Angeles where it’s 82 degrees year round. This antiquated fashion rule also didn’t take into account the power of Olivia Pope’s wardrobe and how her amazing white fashion choices would lead some Luskin staffers to wear white in honor of the Season premiere of Scandal.
(If you are questioning The Lemon’s reference to a smutty television show, please note I linked to Time Magazine above. We are a balance of smarts and smut).
Anyway, October signals the beginning of the winter holiday season, and in the coming months, I would love to share your holiday recipes, traditions, photos, trips, etc., on the Lemon. I must admit that having young children has rekindled my interest in all holidays. After a 30-year hiatus, I now find myself trick or treating again, and just as I did with my younger brother, I can steal all of my kids’ candy and keep it for myself. It’s nice to feel like a kid again.
