Because all four of us sisters have birthdays a week apart, we’ve had a tradition of doing something fun, all four of us. The last few years we’ve met up in Santa Barbara–which works well because it’s halfway {I live four hours north of my other sisters}.

Phew! That’s a lot of birthday since I started blogging. I’m so thankful for my sisters {and for my younger sister and sister in laws!}.

{Plum Goods in Santa Barbara carries our heartfelt line. I LOVE this shop!}

The Spectacular Now was such a good film–but a little sad.

Cake toppers can be found in my shop {here}.

Sister time sounded like Kenny Rogers, laughter and ocean waves.

It felt safe and real and honest.

It tasted like italian food, banana cream pie and diet coke.

It smelled like coffee, hairspray {all those curls have to be tamed!} and toasted bagels.

It looked like blue skies, palm trees and happiness.

Is it time for another sister getaway yet?
