Oak Glen

Last weekend we drove to Oak Glen with our neighbors and explored a bit of the mountain side. It was our first time there, and we loved every minute. Josh loved it a bit less than the rest of us, due to the entire population of California being there the same day we decided to go – but we enjoyed ourselves none-the-less and plan to go back again very soon. Perhaps on a weekday, next time!

Here are a few snap shots of our adventures, I’d like to share…

(above) if you don’t follow me on Instagram or Facebook – you might not now I’m trying out being a redhead. It’s fading very quickly, but it’s something new and perfect for fall!

(above) give a boy a stick, and he’s happy for hours – ahem…well, maybe just a few minutes.


I hope you all are enjoying this new season. It’s my favorite time of year, and I’m eating up all of the colors, smells, and time with my family. Happy Fall to all of you!

Irvine Park

Finn and I made it out this morning for a quick playdate with Amy and Vivienne (the family whose home I photographed for Souvenir‘s Spring 2013 issue). They are great friends of ours and the two littles hadn’t seen each other for a few weeks, so it was especially exciting. Irvine Park is around the corner from me, and I hadn’t thought to take Finn there for the train ride or the petting zoo and pony rides, but I’m so glad Amy suggested it, as we enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Tiggy & Grace

I have written about my lovely friend, Kimberly before. We have worked along side each other during several of my recent projects, including the Creatively Made Home course and Souvenir Magazine. Kimberly has a style that appears so effortlessly casual, warm, earthy, and inviting. It’s everything I love this time of year and have been striving to achieve more of in my own home.

A foody and photographer at heart, Kimberly combines her talents with the elements we’ve all been in love with: natural linen, hand-thrown pottery and raw wood. That’s why when she told me she would be opening up her own pop-up shop this week, I squealed with delight.

The shop, named Tiggy & Grace, named after her grandmother, will be open this Friday, November 16th. It’s a “pop-up” shop which means everything she’s selling is limited in quantities and once it’s gone, it’s gone.


There will be one-of-a-kind pottery her husband made at home. Think rustic, imperfect and beautifully unique.

There will be lovely hand-made linen aprons and napkins, designed by Kimberly and perfect for gift-giving.

And locally made smoked salts packaged in weck jars…

These are just a few of the lovely things you will find at Tiggy & Grace. Be sure to visit the shop this Friday and check some of those gifts off your holiday list. And pick yourself out something pretty too. (I know I will!)
