Surfin' USA


Last summer the kids learned how to surf at Broad Beach. I figured we live in Southern California - they might as well get on a board! I have to admit I was pretty impressed.  Both kids were naturals! I'm hoping this summer we do a lot more of it! 

Olive Turns 10


For Olive's birthday in October we had a drive by party. At this point - I was pretty over not being able to have a proper celebration for my baby. Buuuuut we made the most of it! We had all sorts of sweet treats to share with the people that drove by. Even Auntie Ida and the kids came by to wish Olive a Happy Birthday. I still can't believe how fast the time has gone. Pretty soon she'll be in middle school....

Big Bear Girls Trip


In September of last year Olive and I went on a girls trip to Big Bear. We stayed at this cute airbnb called "Kitschy Cabin" with a few friends. It was nice to get out of Los Angeles because everything was shut down at that point. Looking back - we actually did some pretty fun things at the height of Covid.

At Some Point in Covid


At some point in Covid (it honestly all started blending together) we made 40 lunches for the homeless. I had the kids help me made PB&Js and Turkey and cheese. They both made notes for each lunch and put in chips, cookies, and an orange. It really did feel like we were doing something to help people!

Los Alamos Girls Trip

In July my friend Amanda convinced me to take a girls trip in Los Alamos for a night. We started our adventure in Santa Barbara at a cute little taco place called La Super-Rica Taqueria. Olive still talks about how good the tacos were! Next we stopped in Los Olivos to visit my friend Ashkans winery. Finally we settled at the Skyview Los Alamos and layed by the pool all day. We had dinner at the hotel (I was completely tipsy from all day drinking) and then back to Los Angeles in the morning. It was the perfect little getaway.
