lily, our french bulldog, better known as HRH Lily, has been loving all the glow she has been getting lately. she not only got her picture in the new issue of veranda, sitting in her favorite room, the tented library, she also got to be interviewed by veranda….i’m not kidding she did, see the interview here (the interview also ran on and

sarah bray was so sweet to set up the interview and ask about all of lily’s favorite things….she loves living in sunny la, she loves eating at the sunset tower, her favorite thing to eat is rotisserie chicken, she takes walks everyday with anna to go see all of her friends down the street, like here parents, she loves blue and white, her favorite place is hanging out is in her garden and of course her favorite magazine is veranda.

lily was so happy that veranda featured her garden on the cover of the july-august issue that she threw a party- a garden party with all of her friends! hayley sarno, one of my dearest friends, illustrated the party beautifully. one of lily’s best friends is lulu de pew. lulu is a chic french poodle that lives in nyc and has her own blog.

i know all of this might seem kinda silly, but as you know our pets can be like our children and lily is like our child…she brings so much love and joy to our lives and our home- we are so proud of her! lily rules our house, our garden and our lives…. that’s why she goes by hrh lily- her royal highness! i hope you enjoy the fun.

hrh lily has her own instagram/ follow  here.
