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.
