A shot from a beautiful spring treat on my desk today.  It’s such a beautiful CA day, perfect to welcome spring.  I love the change of seasons, an important reminder of the passage of time & a good opportunity to check-in with yourself.  I am ready to say goodbye to this winter & hello to a fresh new season!

Rodarte for Starbucks

Rodarte is making the rounds this year with its Starbucks & Target + Neiman Marcus collaborations.  What do you think of their Starbucks collection?

Gratitude Captured

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  Personally I have so much to be thankful for & this is not lost on me! This is one of my favorite readings on which to reflect:

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow." — Melody Beattie

I had an amazing, cozy, rejuvenating, romantic, decadent, communal, beautiful holiday!  I am so charmed.  Here are a few of my favorite things from this holiday:

Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesJust made THESE courtesy of Food52 & I have to say they are some of the best cookies I’ve tasted! Got rave reviews from all who sampled.

THESE cookies, which earned high praise.  I love sharing a sweet treat!

My absolute favorite spot on the planet, overlooking the Pacific Ocean

Heaven

Bubbles on the deck

Beach graffiti, from my favorite secret beach town

My hand-spun alpaca beanie, a little surprise from my beau (from an amazing company, From the Road available at Carrots SF)

And his new favorite toy, which we rode to our favorite local hike (below)

Bass Lake…where people were going off the rope swing (in November!) & we saw a bobcat!

Urban Outfitters Shark Socks, which I got for all of our surfer friends

Our friends were kind enough to share their family Thanksgiving dinner with us, followed by a giant kitchen dance party DJ-ed by their 17 year old nephew.  Love this new jam by TNGHT (hear the full EP HERE and download their full ‘Mission Statement’ mix HERE).
