Birthday Celebrations...

This year, I decided to keep my birthday celebration simple. Dinner with the HB and a day out and about in our favorite little bay area city, Yountville. We did a whirlwind tour of food, tastings and baked goods binging. It couldn't it have been more perfect!

Catching up...

Clearly I have some catching up to do with my posts! While I work on getting myself back in the game, I thought I'd start with a quick teaser from our recent trip back to The Parker with one of my bests for her { insert young age here } birthday. Isn't she gorgeous? You can see more pictures from that weekend and follow her at Couture and Chai.

Celebrating in Yountville...

To celebrate the HB's recent promotion (1 year early!), we decided to take an impromptu trip to Napa for a day of delicious food and delightful wine. We started off our visit by having lunch at Bottega, Michael Chiarello's amazing restaurant. We left with our bellies full and our minds wondering how we had never eaten there before. If you get a chance to visit Yountville, I'd highly recommend it!

The Parker, 1 Year Later...

As the saying goes, time flies when you're having fun! To celebrate our 1 year anniversary, the HB and I took a much needed vacation back to The Parker Palm Springs. The Parker is one of our favorite hotels of all time, and if you take a look at some of the gorgeous details below and you'll probably understand why. What do you think?

Brightening up Joshua Tree...

Sorry I've been MIA as of late! Between work and our anniversary, it's been tricky to find time for myself these days. But now that we're back from our trip to Palm Springs, I wanted to share a bit from our mini adventure in Joshua Tree National Park. The HB and I had a grand ol' time exploring the natural beauty of Joshua Tree's amazing rock formations and working on our tans in 100 degree weather. If you haven't visited Joshua Tree before, I definitely recommend checking it out!

Spring Green...

San Francisco is back to its chilly ways, but luckily there are still bright and cheerful signs of spring all throughout the city. The HB and I took a trip out to Crissy Field this weekend to try and catch a glimpse of the Golden Gate and get some fresh air by the bay. We may have gotten more than we bargained for with the crazy wind, but all in all, it was another great SF weekend adventure. Hope your weekend was even better!

Orange Fever...

One of my favorite parts of spring is seeing all the fun pops of color in everyone's outfits around town. This season, orange seems to be everywhere and I couldn't be happier. You can't help but feel a bit cheerful when you get a peek of color here and there, don't you agree?

Day trippin'...

On a whim, the HB and I decided to take a day trip up to Yountville this weekend to celebrate the gorgeous weather. The goals of the day were to stuff ourselves silly with amazing food, drink some delicious sparklies and soak up some sun. Not bad goals to have, don't you agree?

Colors make the world a happier place...

Happy Sunday! This weekend's colorful ensemble was inspired by all of the amazing weather we've been having here in San Francisco. I just couldn't give up the chance to dig out some brights from the back of my closet. Hopefully the sunny weather will continue and we'll get to see more fun colors this season!
