Out & About

Out and About In Olvera Street

Slow Paced Vacationing – Our Santa Ynez Trip

It wasn’t until after I graduated from UCSB that I even discovered the Santa Ynez Valley, a small area about 45 minutes north of Santa Barbara. Known for its countless wineries and gorgeous rolling hills, we started visiting the area for short weekend trips in our mid twenties, and since have usually found an excuse […]

To Do This Weekend: Apple Picking

Out & About In LA – The Eveleigh & Flower District

A while back we visited a restaurant in LA called The Eveleigh before a concert, and I fell in love with the simple decor. White stoneware plates, simple streamlined glasses and white farm napkins. The only decor that adorned the tables were tiny white votives. But then a visit to the LA Flower Mart and […]

Casual & Neutral Place Setting

I thought since I had the pictures already taken, and the floral arrangement post has received a good number of pins, I’d share another little set up I did over the weekend just for fun.  I know what you’re thinking, “how and why did she do this just for fun?”  Well the kids were swimming […]

Favorite Bead Supply Store

It seems like between me and the kids, we’re always visiting someplace interesting or fun, and so I thought I’d start sharing some of those places with you all.  Most of our favorite spots are of course local, but there’s always a treasure to be found while traveling about too.  Today I’d like to share […]
