Lake Tulloch


Happy Labor Day Weekend! We are jetting back to the best coast to spend the long weekend at Lake Tulloch, one of our most favorite places in the world. Karli's family owns the most gorgeous lake house in northern California, so our core of best friends from college and our spouses gathers there annually to soak up the sun and play in the water together. We always have the most perfect time, so I'm counting down the seconds until we arrive! Enjoy some photos from our last trip, and have a wonderful weekend!

Eat Well & Travel Often

il_570xN.470461853_4kg5I have the print pictured above hanging in our kitchen, and I love the way it inspires me every time I wander in for a cup of coffee or a glass of water. I consider it my mantra, a motivating phrase that lifts my spirits any time I ponder the thought. Eating well and traveling often, as surely you've noticed, are my two favorite hobbies, the experiences in my life that are the richest, partly because, in and of themselves, they are two of the best ways I can think of to spend my time and mostly because they are activities typically spent with people I love. All of my favorite memories revolve around what we ate and where we went, and all of my daydreams consist of delicious meals and faraway places. As you may imagine, I'm experiencing massive withdrawals from my recent trip to northern California, and I plan to regale you of our adventures in San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, and Big Sur just as soon as I get my photos uploaded and sorted. It was an incredible trip, and I'm missing the coast in a major way (though not as much as I'm missing Mom & Andrew). Stay tuned!

Northern California

8042030463_4c12575850_bToday I am headed to San Francisco to meet my mom and my brother for a little getaway, and I am so, so excited for the adventures that await! On Friday we'll stay in Half Moon Bay for an evening, and then dreams will come true as we spend a few days in Big Sur, a place I've been dying to visit. I'm looking forward to exploring new communities, eating delicious food, drinking California wines, and spending tons of time near the ocean. I can't wait to share photos when I get back! Happy Thursday to you and yours! See you next week.
