The Perfect Morning

The husband and I have been an opposite schedules for a while now. Oh, how I have I missed him. For our anniversary we decided it was important for us to get away((even if it was just for the weekend)). We packed up our bags and headed to San Diego. Our first morning there was perfection. We woke up to a view of the sailboats, walked around the bay and ended up at a quaint cafe with a view. It was the kind of morning that did not have an agenda. A morning where you can enjoy the little things. A morning where you can spend quality time focusing on your spouse. A morning where you can watch the marine layer come in and hide the hills of California, The kind of morning that you do not want to end.

a gender reveal party ((part 2)) you have seen the decor-- now it is time for the big reveal.

My friends knew they wanted to do something unique for the big reveal and in the end my friend let her husband decide on how they wanted to go about it. 

He picked a pinata. And not only a pinata but one that was a green monster.

He was pretty excited about it.

After discussing it, they decided that they were going to discover the gender of the baby along side their family and friends.

They knew they couldn't wait long until they found out.. so they scheduled the reveal party on the same day as their doctor appointment. They had the doctor write the gender on a card and place it in an envelope-- then handed the envelope to a neighbor who then filled their pinata with blue or pink candy!

^^ This picture captured the moment so perfectly.


After the reveal everyone stuck around to celebrate the parents to be! 

The whole day was perfect.What a blessing to be able to witness such a joyous occasion.

To me... this is what community is all about.

one of my favorite things.

It doesn't get much better than sharing good food and drinks with friends. Then when you add in a view... oh my..I am one happy little lady.

I feel blessed to be able to call California home and want to take advantage of its beautiful views and cool weather. Getting together to BBQ, in my opinion, is a great way to enjoy the area while still keeping things cheap ;). We packed our favorite food in a cooler, brought our pup along and truly had the best time!

Happy Summer Friends!

The Perfect Summer Drink

My husband is on a cooking spree and I am loving it! We were sick of our usual weekly menus so we decided to spice it up and started to look at different cultures. We have picked out several recipes and have declared our first couple of weeks.. Indian Week and African Week. This Juice recipe is African and we cannot get enough of it. It is refreshing with a little bit of a kick. 

4 large lemons juiced
1 cup white sugar
7 cups water, as needed
16 leaves fresh mint, crushed
1/3 pound fresh unpeeled ginger root cut into 1/2 in chunks
1 1/2 cups water, or as needed to cover

Our Favorite Spot

California has been good to us these last couple of months. Our city is beautiful and we have found some local spots that we love, but our favorite spot Is our back porch.
The bulb lights are hung, the bird feeders are up, and fresh flowers are placed in my favorite pots.

people who love to eat

People who love to eat are always the best people.

This weekend the husband and I went on a day date. We ended up at a Vietnamese restaurant and I must say this might be our new favorite spot. It is hard to beat fresh spring rolls dipped in peanut sauce!
