Floral Hangover

Now that I no longer need to pin or plan things for P's floral first birthday I am feeling a flower void! Since I can't get my love of them out of my head these are just a few items I am crushing on. Do florals transition to fall? I am just not ready to say goodbye to them yet!


End of Summer...and it's all on SALE!

Summer is on its way out and fall is approaching which translates to my favorite time of year. Working in San Francisco the city is usually flooded with tourists in the summertime, but the best time to be here is September and October when we have our Indian Summer. Perfect temps, blue skies and way less people.

While I am not quite ready for summer to end (because commuting in rainy weather just plain old sucks!) these are some great sale picks if you're lucky enough to squeeze a little more than three months out of the season.

Someone plant me a money tree because I want it all!


Lake Tahoe Lovin'

This past weekend we spontaneously decided to make a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. Friday after work we packed up our car and hoped P would sleep the majority of the ride...wishful thinking on that one! While we had a good time, it was a little more crowded than we remembered it to be. I think that it because we are used to meeting up with our friend, Natasha, and she and Ryan know where to take us away from all the tourists!

Regardless, we were excited to finally log some lake time and a stop at the in laws on the way home for dinner didn't hurt on Sunday evening. Broke the ride up, P got out some energy and we were able to crawl right into bed when we got home.
Until next time Tahoe <3



We had such a nice day yesterday celebrating our little one year old. We decided to take P to Tilden Park in the Berkeley hills which houses a carousal, a little farm and a steam train to ride on! Living in the Bay Area practically my whole life and I have never taken advantage of this park!

After a full day at Tilden we had dinner at a local restaurant, Pizza Antica, followed by a confetti shower and cake eating! It was a long day (and my camera skills were seriously OFF) but now my little one year old is blissfully snoozing away.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes for our sweet girl!

This time last year I was draped in a hospital gown anxiously awaiting an anesthesiologist. This year I am baking a cake. What a difference a year makes.

I love you beyond measure. Thank you for making me a mama <3

Happy Birthday sweet P!
