Le Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles 2013

 I woke up today thinking last night’s Le Dîner en Blanc was just a dream. Photo taken by Jennifer Young I found out about Le Dîner en Blanc while browsing Pinterest about 2 years ago. Then I read this post by Jordan at Oh Happy Day. I made it one of my Life List goals […]

Liv the Patriot

  With the 4th coming up soon I came across these rad building blocks with all 44 presidents on them at Uncommon Goods. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s important to me that Liv learns about our presidents as well as geography. The almost $100 price tag is a bummer *finger crossed they’ll go on sale*. I […]

New Perspectives

I am feeling a bit down in the dumps because A. I’m disappointed we couldn’t go hiking this past Sunday and B. I weighed myself on Wii fit today *after what I thought was a kickass workout* and I’ve gained .9 lbs!!
