10% chance of rain and it poured as the bride walked down the aisle... staff hurriedly distributed too few umbrellas as guests shielded themselves with handbags and stray coats. She stood out, the only one in pastel amongst the navy and black, white umbrellas hovered like jellyfish over a sea of soaking wet witnesses.

Good Advice


Sale at Addison Endpapers

One of my favorite shops, Addison Endpapers, is having a studio sale this weekend! I highly recommend going if you can make it. This family owned business seeks out the most remarkable treasures and they only have a studio sale every so often!

Was at a friend's last night. He just moved into his (awesome) place and hasn't hung all his paintings yet. This one was sitting, untouched in the very long hallway. Made me think about all the unfinished things I have to do...

Weekend Pics

Spent the weekend driving down to San Luis Obispo... On the way, we stumbled upon this abandoned house off of 101.

We stayed at the ever fabulous Madonna Inn. Welcome to room 210, Paris Violets...

The sky was spectacular on the drive home...

At The Elmwood Cafe

I've spent quite a few mornings at my favorite cafe recently... The Elmwood never ceases to impress! The everything here is all made in house, down to the morning pastries, seasonal soups, delicious jams and even fruit and herb syrups the Elmwood uses in their homemade sodas (might I recommend a fizzy Blackberry lemonade)!!!! My new favorite is the house-made almond butter thickly spread on toasted sourdough and slathered in strawberry jam. Its about the best comfort food, elevated just a touch by the fresh ingredients and toasty take! Another favorite is their lychee iced tea, slightly sweet and floral and 100% delicious! If you're in the neighborhood check them out... you'll love their old time feel paired with down-home delicious food!!!
