{ fresh air }

Our 5th annual vacation to the mountains was not only a cure for stress but also a source of inspiration.

After four wonderful days of fishing, lounging, smores and all around awesomeness, I decided on three things:

 I need my own fishing pole 

I'm going to learn how to play the guitar!

Sling shots are the coolest!!!

It had to have been the most refreshing year yet. Here are a few shots of the trip:


Oh and here's a pic of my guitar! So excited!!!!

{ alive and well! }

craziest. week. of. my. life.

I was not prepared for the amount of business that would come from Mothers Day. I ended up having to call in the troops to come help me! The troops being two beautiful friends who kindly drank wine with me while filling orders well into the night.  : ) not too much wine of course. thank you Jodi, thank you Jennie!

So I happily survived the madness and look forward to the next round of holiday orders. Thank you lovely customers!!

OH, and I ran a half marathon in San Francisco on Sunday!
Only my second ever. I met my goal as I had better time than the last race and truly enjoyed the training experience... think I'm officially addicted. I'll be joining 24,000 ladies in October for the Nike Womens Half as well. Can't wait!

Here are some random shots of the last couple weeks :) 

Have a wonderful Mothers Day weekend, friends.
