Backyard Photos, Reflections and Forgotten Memories

I swear, as I am getting older, my memory is getting worse! Remember when I talked about making lemon bars for my friend’s wedding? Well, Robert came over and took some photos of me both in the backyard and getting the lemon bars prepped.

I completely forgot that he had sent me the final set a few days before my New York trip. Silly me. Here is another example of how ridiculously talented my best friend is. #bestfriendsforlife

In case you missed his other shoots, they are here and here.

This one is my favorite:

Watch: Miami Beach

Dress: Anthropologie (similar here and here)

Earrings: Kate Spade

Necklace: Kate Spade

Shoes: Steve Madden Flats 

The mornings are crisp and cool here in California, and mellow into a beautiful sunny 70 degrees by early afternoon. I love being able to pull on my boots and a cardigan in the morning, but still enjoy the sun on my face as I leave work.

What do you love about where you live?

Sunglasses and Pearls Part 2, Fancy Friday, and IPhone Cases

Robert the Magnificent (AKA my fancy photographer friend) sent me more photos. There were two beautiful ones from our photo shoot in the park about a month ago, you can read more about it in this post Sunglasses and Pearls. I’m wearing the sunglasses I talked about last post, from Banana Republic. I love them so much I am thinking about buying a back up pair in case anything happens to these.

I had a conflict on Friday, so this week’s Fancy Friday will be held on Sunday. More about that in tomorrow’s post! Robert was also able to recover one photo from the dusk lighting from last week’s Fancy Friday. He is fond of the serious faces, so this is why we look solemn.

I settled on this phone case, and ordered it this morning post workout. I got the durable option, and the Roomie is giving it to me for my birthday next month.

I hope everyone had a lovely Friday night! I know I did. What did you do? Do you have any big weekend plans? Can’t wait to hear all about it!

Happy Friday

My roommate and I drove down to San Luis Obisbo last Saturday to attend a friend’s wedding at Santa Margarita Ranch. It was warm and sunny. The wedding was beautiful! There were people at the wedding that we knew from our bible study group, so we had a blast eating and dancing with them.

The reception was in a barn!

So yesterday my roomie and I hit the road and joined my parents at our house in Lake Tahoe. Today we went to the beach and relaxed with my brother’s pup by the water. It was a clear day with warm sunshine. It was a lovely last day at the beach before school starts next week.

We went to Chimney Beach, and hiked down to it from the highway.

A friend showed me this amazing video and I was completely blown away. Watch it!

I’ll hopefully post more photos of Tahoe later this weekend!
