A Few Favorites

Happy Friday! Here are a few favorites from the last few weeks – Just got these new sheets (shown in the photo above, with a favorite morning read) and have really enjoyed them! Overnight oats have been our quick breakfast go-to lately, and I really want to try this version next. I’m not a huge DIY […]

Fall Bucket List

In southern California, “fall” is a very loose term. A few trees turn golden in our neighborhood (including one the Mr planted in our back yard last year), and the air takes on a barely perceptible crisp feeling… and that’s enough to get me excited about enjoying the new “season.” :) To make the most […]

Working from home

As long as I can remember, I knew I wanted to stay home with my children, if at all possible. When I got pregnant with our oldest son Augie, I could feel a shift in my heart that pulled me toward home life. I loved my job as a video editor, but also felt burnt […]

Another great post about building a morning routine. If you love coffee (like me), here’s the healthiest way to drink it. This shirt + cutoffs have been my […]

But hands down, fall is my favorite time of year. For several weeks I’ve been itching for cooler weather, cozy fall clothes, […]

Summer

Even though it’s been a busy season for me at work, summer manages to live on without me. I’ve still been blessed with a few bits of the season these last few weeks. Here’s a peek… Above: birthday flowers from dear friends. Farmer’s market finds (Little Italy’s is the best in San Diego). The perfect […]

Work / Life Balance

I have always believed strongly in finding balance between work and life outside of work. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that I am a much more creative, efficient person when I take the time to rest my mind and body and spend time with those I love. Especially now since the Mr’s schedule requires […]
