When the mood strikes and the lighting is nice, I like to whip out the “big camera” aka my Canon DSLR. Holly and I took these pics on a random day at a random time – just because. I think they turned out nicely. Nothing fancy. Just capturing a moment in our family’s time together. And of course, as always,¬†my girl cat Jeanie was ready for her close up. She’s such a photogenic girl. Here’s to simplicity. *clink*

When we finally finished JJ’s nursery, I took¬†some quick photos before it got bogged down with baby shower gifts and other random things. Here they are! I adore how it turned out. We didn’t know if we were going to have a girl or a boy so we wanted to keep things neutral. And since the nursery is merely a nook of our bedroom, it was priority to keep the styles simpatico – no bright colors or cartoonish items. I¬†prefer¬†a more natural, mature look in a home and that includes my baby’s nursery. If you ask me, the best part of it all is the solar system mobile that we bought from Pottery Barn. So bad ass, huh?? We actually had to do a little DIYing on the canopy so that the mobile would fit. We just added a second, larger hoop underneath the original so that it could contain the mobile. The small details such as the sailboat, salt lamp and hanging plants really give it some cozy style. Don’t you just love it?!

Since there are about a bajillion pics in this post, I’ll let them do most of the talking. In case you’re wondering – in my world, this is what the PERFECT day looks like. Meaningful friendships, beautiful scenery, some amazingly scrumptious food, adventure! Life is grand.

A couple of weeks ago a few of us drove to Half Moon Bay to Santa’s Tree Farm & Village. We were seeking that Christmas-y vibe that you tend to miss when the weather is a consistent 64 and sunny. Also, we wanted to chop down our own tree! New tradition? Me thinks YES.

Rachel was sweet enough to push through the pain of a injured foot and snaps some shots of us. She’s a good friend, y’all. The farm was huge and their selection was pretty impressive. Fresh, crisp air and the scent of pine trees is enough to put anyone in a great mood. Towards the back of the farm there was a lot at the base of the hill that held two species of trees that I’ve never seen before – REDWOOD¬†christmas trees! Made me wonder if these types of beauties were a strictly-cali type of offering? They took my breath away and we knew immediately that we wanted one! We found our perfect little guy and got to choppin’. It took some elbow grease but like many things in life it was much easier to accomplish with 2 people sawing away together. We lugged it over to the rugged men working the farm and they fed the tree into this machine that spins it around and binds it in a matter of seconds. Pretty cool! After loading our darling tree up we drove back to the City and feasted on deep friend dungeness crab. This was such a fun little trip. Damn near-perfect day. We’ll be back next year!
