Oh thank you! It's actually a dress from H&M, but now that I look at that photo again, it totally looks like a romper because the wind is blowing it between my legs, ha! ;) xo

Thanks Molly! Did your bestie move home eventually? When we buy a 2nd home there (still working on the 1st home in Seattle, ha), you'll have another reason to come out to SoCal to visit! ;) xo

Long Beach is the new LA. Or so it seems! I have 3 friends who recently moved there from Los Angeles and they absolutely love it. I can see why. Beautiful beaches, quaint canals, hip eats, affordable housing, an easy airport, and only 30 minutes from LA. When Hal and I were down there for a wedding, we got a chance to explore the the LBC in all its glory... Just like the Venice canals! With gondolas and all. One of my favorite memories of living in LA was gliding through the Long Beach canals on a date night with... Continue reading

Hiya! Just returned from a quick trip to Long Beach, California to be a bridesmaid in my dear friend's wedding. Her color palette matched the watercolor-calligraphy invitation suite I designed earlier in the year - deep shades of rich n' juicy pinks n' purples. It was gorgeous! I'll be sharing more photos of the event later down the road. Until then, I've rounded up a few berrylicious Etsy faves....

Ha, that's so true. Even if you don't notice any changes in their vicinity, at least they're nice to look at! And beauty in our environment brings happiness :) xo

Wow! Okay first of all, what is a gong bath? It sounds amazing :) And secondly, I love that the lady gave you a crystal when you apparently needed it most. I would feel pretty special too. Thanks for sharing this story Caroline - it's a lovely reminder. xo

I was skeptical too! Thought it was all a bunch of woo woo - but now that I'm into reiki and understand universal energy, it makes sense to me now :) xo

Gemstones are living creatures. They are active participants in nature. Protons, neutrons and electrons are flying around in an absolute bliss of balance and participation, upholding patterns of sacred geometry. -Benjamin Dean Everything on earth has a vibration, and crystals are no exception. Certain kinds resonate at extremely high frequencies and can raise the vibration of the energy around it, including our own. Some people collect gemstones and wear them as jewelry for this very reason. I carry around a moonstone to increase intuition and creativity! Of course science is slow to support any alternative method of healing, but I... Continue reading

I know, I'm kicking myself for not buying a hammock while I was in Belize. They're so cheap there too! :)

I'm noticing a lot of bloggers posting a little less frequently and spending more time away from their computers to soak up the summer sun, unplug and enjoy life. Myself included! Here are a few photos of our recent couple's motorcycle ride to Point No Point. What a sweet little spot. We rode the ferry across the Puget Sound, up to the northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula. Picked up some sammies at the local deli, ate lunch in the sand, explored the lighthouse and people-watched on the beach. We ended the trip at our friends' dad's tasting room, Sound...
