RECORD BREAKING HIGHS

{ September 2, 2017 }

There are only a few ways to keep cool when it’s 104* in San Francisco. Head to the beach, or get out of the city and find air conditioning and wine. Check, check.

HIGGINS BREEZE

{ August 12, 2017 }

Another wonderful vacation at Higgins Beach Maine for the books! The kids are getting older, and the beach is getting more crowded, but the magic will always be there. I always feel so refreshed and full of love after this week.

MISS(ES) INDEPENDANT

{ July 3, 2017 }

This year I celebrated Independence day with these incredible women who have infused so much fun into my life. I can’t say I’ve ever worn long sleeves on the 4th of July, but we put up with it because it’s SO DAMN PRETTY here. The Bay’s dynamic personality shows up well in these photos.

RUN ALONG HOME

{ June 10, 2017 }

I don’t often make it home these days, being on the opposite coast. When I do, I’m reminded of how lucky I am to have such an amazing family and friends. It’s hard to not sound like a Hallmark card. But hey, we ain’t perfect – we partied hard, and almost threw our dog Molly into the garbage by accident. Home is where the heart is.

BAY TO BREAKERS

{ May 21, 2017 }

It doesn’t get more San Francisco than this…

PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO

{ March 28, 2017 }

Earlier this month I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Punta Esmeralda Condominiums in Puerto Vallerta, Mexico. It really was paradise! Everything about the trip was exactly what we were hoping for: gorgeous weather, exquisite food, and enough margaritas to fill one of the 8 pools.

CLIFF HOUSE

{ January 29, 2017 }

Perched on the cliffs just north of Ocean beach lives the world-famous Cliff House. I had been wanting to visit this little gem for a while, and once I finally got around to it, I was pleasantly surprised. Being inside, you can feel its rich history and the warmth of the sun makes it impossible to feel blue. The Art Deco design dazzled me, as did the two martinis I had at Zinc Bar! But most of all, I was totally mesmerized by the enchanting sunset.

SO THIS IS CHRISTMAS

{ December 25, 2016 }

Christmas means so many things. To me, the best part is being surrounded by my family for days on end. The mountains of gifts don’t hurt either 😉

ALL GOBBLED UP

{ November 24, 2016 }

It’s been quite a few years since I’ve spent Thanksgiving away from my family, and there can only be one next best thing…Friendsgiving! I’m so very thankful to have such an amazing group of friends, who open up their homes wholeheartedly. Big shout out to Vera, for housing my friends and me, and all the shenanigans we packed with us. L’Chaim!
