I am off for an extended weekend of styling for shoots just outside of San Fransisco. The two stories I will be working on are really exciting for me and I cannot wait to share photos with you soon.
It’s also an anticipated trip because I get to work with a new photography couple, Candace and Vitaliy, who I am quickly growing to adore. The above photo was taken by Vitaliy on his recent trip to Bolivia. Don’t those llamas look ready for a party with their bright earrings? Okay, I am not really going to party with the llama’s, but wouldn’t that be rad!?! I just adore this couple’s creative whimsy and cannot wait to pair up with them. See you in a few days…
I have a knack for loving things that are soon to disappear. From my favorite Mediterranean restaurant to my newly obsessed over perfume. I try hard these days not to get too attached…
but sometimes it happens, and then I find an old issue of Blueprint buried under a stack of papers and I mourn what was my favorite magazine that flew out of my life as quickly as it jumped in.
In the midst of the issue I came across the most lovely party- A summer backyard brunch & play date, entitled “Easy like Sunday Morning“. The perfect weekend inspiration for a relaxed celebration of summer. Find the article with the plan & recipes HERE.
This weekend I am inspired by mymom who is lovely and very missed now that we have moved away. She claims to not be crafty but can sew just about anything. This came in handy growing up since I am 5′nothing and need everything altered.
Now she puts her handiwork toward happiness for the babies:
Like this dress she made for chica,
and this one made out of the skirt I wore on our first year of marriage anniversary date (gallivanting around Niagara Falls swooning in love).
She is quite inspiring- in her honor I plan to actually use my sewing machine this weekend:)
This weekend we are having a housewarming party complete with raspberry truffle smores (I think they sound heavenly). Next week, full on melted chocolate, I will share all the details with you. After the party, I’ll be snuggling up to my sweet Valentines both big and small. Hope you have a very lovely long weekend.
This weekend I am finishing off an incredible week where I have given myself extra time to rest and process some major upcoming decisions. I am feeling exceptionally grateful for our wonderful family and all of our lovely new San Diego friends. This weekend I will also be sneaking away with the hubby- enjoying a few of the “perks” of his new job.
PS. Instead of a picture I leave you for your weekend with one little gremlin and one very delirious laughing baby.
(Let me apologize in advance for the blinding light, un-cut clip, and the poor video quality. This was shot with the hubby’s phone and I cannot edit it. I decided to share it anyway because the laughing was just too awesome to keep to myself. Imperfection, right?!?)
