A Celebration With Chandeliers

                    I joined my daughter on her birthday for lunch. We ate at this beautiful
                    little restaurant with a chandelier in every room and eating outside on
                    the patio with a beautiful pond and waterfall in Los Alamitos, California.
                                                It's called Shenandoah at the Arbor.                       

                                     A waterfall on one side of the small foot bridge.

                                    A koi pond on the other side of the foot bridge.

Two nights before, I captured these shots of earrings on the
guests at another celebration for my daughter.
Gorgeous neck-couldn't resist this beautful shot.

My talented designer friend.

Silver charm necklace with Paris on her mind.

                                  Custom made bracelets with real gemstones by my friend Lori.
