March’s gift for a friend: a drop-in brunch bag on a Spring day

IMG_3210 For March I decided to do a little drop-in to see a friend’s Mom. It’d been way too long since I’d stopped over to say hi, plus they had a new puppy that I wanted to get my hands on! Since Spring is in full swing in these parts, I thought to bring brunch over, Trader Joe’s style. I stopped for some pretty sunflowers (of course), cold-brewed coffee, an almond danish, sparkling lemonade and .. last but not least, doggy treats for their new puppy, Jax! Then I delivered it in a fun grocery bag they could keep for all their future trips to Trader ;)

We had such a nice time catching up and hanging out in their backyard garden. They even put on Spiderman for Jace and served us some cookies and milk! What a beautiful Spring morning to visit and hear all their updates. When you can’t see your Californian best friend, it helps to see her through her momma’s face. Love her dearly and love my far friend.

My view lately

thumb_IMG_0700_1024 Well, hello. How are you? Me… Well, I’ve been soaking up the Arizona life these days, for what it’s worth! Somehow I’ve made myself very busy again. But I don’t mind .. the weather is nice, it’s good to keep Jace active and about .. and my view lately, no matter how I look at it, is pretty awesome. Life is good, and so is God! I’ve been up to a lot, and I’d love to share.

A farewell in black & white

My sister threw us the nicest farewell party last weekend at the Grigio. It was a lovely night with our friends and family, where we mingled, ate cake and toasted to new beginnings! Here are the pics from the party, portrait style:





Love how my Dad is getting ready to flip someone off. Hahaha




I’m going to miss them all so much. Can’t believe we’re really moving!

The Color Run

My sister and I joined my friend Melissa and the rest of the ‘We Color Outside the Lines‘ team in The Color Run last weekend. We had a blast! The minds behind The Color Run ask that you wear all white at the start of the race. So, we did.

Love her.

The “Color Extravaganza” at the end was by far the best part! My favorite was the teal color.

I had Tipped Out hair for a day!
