I can’t get enough of these flowers. I don’t know their official name but I just call them yellow buttons. I guess I’ll just have to buy some more this week.
Well, this Summer didn’t turn out as expected. Some family emergencies occurred and that’s life sometimes. So I didn’t get to do as much of my Summer Bucket List as I anticipated but that’s okay because family comes first. The one thing I did get to do was read. Hooray! I’m usually a pretty slow reader and get distracted with things like the television, napping or stalking people on instagram but I’ve been trying to […]
After our San Clemente visit, we made our way to San Juan Capistrano. Such a cute little town. Wanted to eat here but it was aleady closed. Boo! It’s right off the Amtrak train tracks. There is a nice adobe house with some pretty gorgeous cacti trees. It gives you a bit of the history of the city. Gorgeous! There is a nice little neighborhood by the train tracks. It’s a mix of residential, cafes, […]
Last week I started my vacation or should I say staycation. I was itching to go somewhere, so we took a nice day trip to the beach town of San Clemente. I guess you could say I kind of fell in love. The surf report for the day looked pretty swell. Just kidding, I have no idea what any of this means other than surfers should use caution. I did sit on the pier and […]
It was my birthday on Friday. On Saturday, I had a small dinner party with close family and friends. It was nice, intimate and happy. There was lots and lots of food. There was cake and flowers. There was also conversations, super-duper great gifts, lots of laughs and lots of fawning over my dog Ladybug. She’s always a hit at our parties. I’m glad I’m here to celebrate another year of life. When I was young, […]
I love our little kitchen. The light in there in the morning is dreamy. Here’s some things I’ve been capturing in there. I love the packaging on Twinings Tea. The color is soft and the paper is slick. I liked this color combo. It’s the simple everyday things I get excited about photographing and learning more and more how to photograph them.
Every February this tree on the side of the house comes to life. The pink petals begin to glow among the dark branches and damp ground. The tree is visible right outside my window and on sunny days it brings a sunny disposition to my morning wake up routine. I just love the way it contrasts against the cement. It’s like a floor of pink goodness. The petals fall everywhere. It’s such a nice, almost […]
Here’s a cute mushroom village for your Saturday enjoyment. Heart shaped. They remind me of the hobbit village in “Lord of the Rings”. Happy Saturday!
Good-bye to 2016!!! Hooray!! 2016 was not the greatest year. I was trying to think of some good things that happened in 2016 and they seem far and few. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful that nothing major happened to any of my family, friends or even me for that matter. Everyone is healthy and happy. However, it just seemed like a year that had a cloud of doom hanging above it and it seemed […]
After we hit Santa Barbara, we started to head home and decided to take a detour to Ojai. I haven’t been there since I was young. It’s a small town but so charming with lots to check out. I hope to return for a weekend and take advantage of their spas and hiking trails. Some beautiful stairs. Old timey cocktails? Yes, I always say yes to a good cocktail. Clear blue skies for miles with this […]
