As I write this post, I’m trying to time the exit of a huge fly with the opening of my screen door.  3 failed attempts.  Fly concussion imminent.  But it’s his fault, because he needs to give me a warning or something, instead of repeatedly popping out of the woodwork, bee-lining it and then slamming [...]

When I saw the wedding of Shannon and Pratap, shot by Sara of OneLove Photography, I got really excited.

FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS { Part I } | California on my mind | “Meyer Lemon, Lime and Quinoa Pudding Cakes” by Cannelle et Vanille

While in California about a week and a half ago, I stayed a number of nights with my dear aunt and uncle at their extraordinary coastal ranch home.  It’s such a privilege to spend time there, for myriad reasons.  Seeing as we live on opposite sides of the country, quality time with that side of [...]
