4 things...friends and family

It is hard to believe we are already half way through October.  This time of year I like to spend extra time with my friends, family and loved ones.  I hope everyone gets some time this season to do the same.Thinking about : Nicknames.  I have always enjoyed nicknames.  They are such special inside jokes that make you laugh and smile every time you hear them.  Some of my favorites are, Stripes, Gaidin Nordic warrior, uncle gorilla, and Mike what happens in Vegas, Mike Ofeldt.

Dreaming of : an upcoming trip to Vegas.  Two of my oldest friends are flying in from Australia to Vegas in a few weeks.  I cannot wait for Mike to finally meet them and to have a fun weekend with my friends.

Inspired by : Collaborating with friends. Alyssa McNees, Taylor Mcwethy and I created a Kid parade, play date, photo shoot. I feel so blessed to count these two super talented ladies as friends and collaborators.

Dining : family barbecues.  It's been a few weeks of family time and I am so smitten about getting to eat outside al fresco with my family.  Everyone is so spread out and it has been amazing to be able to share so many meals together.  My cousin Amber hosted the most beautiful dinner in her backyard a few weeks ago.  She lives in Napa and has a gorgeous garden with tons of wine.  Being around her makes me want to take cooking classes. Looking forward to heading back and visiting Amber Minha again.


Enjoy your week everyone.
