steve was out of town so i took the boys to santa barbara to meet two of my sisters. they are so fun, laid back and a huge help. it was great to get away and be with aunties!

it’s been raining raining raining but sunday cleared up and was gorgeous. the sky was so blue and everything felt fresh. we walked around town a little and browsed anthropologie. fresh air and anthropologie–food for my soul ha!

i had been feeling discouraged with the constant sicknesses we’ve had this winter {both boys has strep last week} and it was wonderful to be out and be healthy.

aren’t my sisters amazing? they are two years younger and fraternal twins. i’m an identical twin. yep, my mom had two sets of twins and then my parents adopted a third set. and i have an older brother who’s not a twin, but don’t worry, he had twin daughters!

i am so blessed to have so many sisters and brothers {who are incredible aunties and uncles}. matthias and david have it pretty darn good.

susan and ellen it was so fun to hang out this weekend. you are the best!

are you close to your silbings?

here’s a little video of a rainy evening at the beach. music is NEW and so beautiful. it’s ‘out to sea’ by history of painters. take a listen {you’ll love it}.
