Lorelai in California

We've been talking a lot lately about our summer plans and I think they'll probably find us soaking up a different kind of sunshine in California. Ever the SoCal girl at heart, Lorelai is beyond excited and has been talking non-stop about all the things she hopes to do. To remind her of our last trip home, I put together a little video of clips from almost a year ago in Santa Monica, Downtown LA (at the Ice Cream Museum) and some other fun family snaps. Needless to say, she LOVED seeing some of her favorite moments (and her current favorite song... gotta love this girl!). The video was just too sweet not to share so here we are. Enjoy!

Let's Catch Up!

Long time, no talk. Have you forgotten about me already? The last couple of weeks have been a little bit nuts (I got a terrible case of bronchitis that left me in bed for a whole week, got really behind on a bunch of work that I'm just starting to get on top of, wrapped up a class and am working on BIG things that I can't wait to share with you). Needless to say, I got a bit pulled away from this space but this is me stopping in to tell you that I've missed you!

I'm already getting excited about our Summer return to the States and can't wait to spend a couple of months (maybe more!) in the California sun. Paradise with plentiful eating-out opportunities and no humidity? I'm stoked... especially for In N Out. I also really want to find an epic SoCal photographer and get some updated family photos taken. Hopefully, I'll be able to see some of you in person (finally), explore new neighborhoods and spend some much-needed family time. We may even head to Disneyland and I happen to know someone who is SUPER excited about it!

Even though it's been pretty quiet around here lately, I wasn't completely dead to the online world. Here are some posts you might have missed:

Contributing to two different sites that I LOVE (and one more coming soon) has been so much fun and it definitely keeps me really busy but I never want to let this space suffer content-wise. Right now I'm working out the best way to balance it all and still have time to spend unplugged. It's hard but it'll be worth it to work out a good system.

It's funny, sometimes this space seems like a landing page for everything I'm doing elsewhere or a creative outlet for me to share what's inspiring me but other times (like today) it feels like some kind of digital diary. I guess that's the beauty of blogging, isn't it? I'm excited to jump into other kinds of content (maybe some more video?!), get the book club up and running and work to make this space something mor cohesive. Here's goes nothing!

How have you been lately? What's new?

March Mood

Happy March lovelies! It's been a whirlwind of a year so far. For some reason, January seemed to drag on super slowly and February felt like the blink of an eye. So far, March seems to have struck a happy medium between the two but there's A LOT going on right now. Some of the tasks on my plate are work-related (peak wedding season, lots of fun contributions, piles of emails to answer) and there's also some fun things happening at home (plans for summer vacation, navigating first grade, etc.).

I can always count on the images I'm pinning to morph themselves into a little time capsule of what I'm thinking/feeling/loving lately and this month is no different. Looks like I'm drawn to salmon-y pink, warm-weather attitude and mommy snuggles right now... and I'm totally okay with that! What are you inspired by this month?
