Road Trip!

We're hitting the Pacific Coast Highway today for a road trip along the coast. I'm so excited! Will we make it all the way to Santa Barbara or be lured to a stop by one of the towns or beaches along the way? Who knows! Have a great long weekend and see you Tuesday :)

Friday we went to our favorite local beach after work. I met T with two vodka lemonades, a camera, and all of his kiting equipment. It was a kind of farewell surf session for him and his friend since his buddy was moving away the next day. It's pretty sweet to be the only ones on the beach as it gets dark. It feels so summery, like you have endless time, and the colors are so soft and pretty. But then it gets very cold, and everyone's cup needs a refill and it's time to go. 

T's friend came over to hang out for the rest of the evening. This guy knows his sails - he has two engineering degrees and was hired to figure out how to make sails even more streamlined, and faster, for America's Cup sailboats. Not a small gig. But what cracked me up was Tocco! This guy totally knows his sport. Every step of the conversation Tocco was like, oh yeah, this and that, sails, sails, sails, past, present, and future. Not only that, he knew endless sail variations, has tried them all out, and also knows the English and the German words for all the parts. I tried not to be too amused. But I was loving it. This is why I call this water boy Salty

Stained Glass (something I didn't even know I wanted until now)

Also this post makes me wish I could go to town on a custom stained glass order for the house. Just imagine selecting colors - the process! Swoon 

Pinterest / Airbnb lobby

Hey-o! I realized I never shared these. They're the lobby for the new (second) space for Pinterest's HQ, also shared with Airbnb. Lucky ducks. It's so gorgeous in there! I may work from home there one day, or work from lobby. WFL ; )

Working on our front yard. Werk


The California poppies have already decided that they don't like our offer to get out of their containers and into our soil. Sadness! They're my favorite.

Pretty things...from the weekend.

After gushing over their Instagram and owner blogs and artwork for a while I finally made a stop at General Store in mellow, sea salty Outer Sunset- holy moly. That's a beautiful shop, like, I'll take everything, backyard too. (So many links to link to, but it cannot be helped, it's such gorgeous stuff). And revisiting Flora Grubb to get inspired all over again by palm trees and succulents for the garden makeover T and I are tackling (and to plan imaginary super expensive parties!). But the very best part was spending the day with my friend Morgan who is so rad, and whose blog Pandahead is one of my very favorite sources of inspiration, recipes, photography, style, humor and (so much) more. It's also just a damn good read. So check it out. So great to see you lady!! Too bad we are on opposite coasts because I want to hang way more, but hooray for social media. Sunday was a great day too, as T and I went to a (twins!) baby shower for our good friends Laura and Damien. We are totally bummed that they are moving to Portland in a few days but so excited for them and their new adventures. They were among our first friends out here and are now a very good excuse for a road trip to Oregon...

If you're a tumblr fan, maybe you'd like to take a look here. I have begun a new small creative outlet, Indoor Ceremony, gathering all the most beautiful parts of being at home, and creating your own indoor ceremonies.
