June 7th | blog friends, family



i found these plastic letters at

whimsy on 7th in carpinteria over the weekend.

and also met the sweetest new friend.

check out lori’s darling blog over here.




we decided to stick the letters in the sand and take some pics.

i cracked up at these seagulls coming on the scene.




what a gorgeous weekend.

the sun was shining, the water was so blue-green.

it was a much needed break to get away for a day with my sister.




i think these letters might end up in my entryway.

they make me smile.




sending you a big hello today!

    Too cute!! …love the little “seagull visit” 😉 {this is gettin’ me thinkin’ — maybe the next Lisa Leonard necklace should feature a silver pendant in the shape of letters — with the name(s) stamped on the letters?} 😉

  4. oh, and HI back. =)

    A highlight from my weekend…Well, I have two of them… 1) We officially got the keys to our first home. Woohoo! and 2) We both saw our little one kick my tummy. It was the craziest and most breath-taking thing to witness together.

    The highlight of my weekend was telling a new mom that yes, she’s actually good at being a mom and can relax. And then I got to go back into her room at tell her that not only is she good at being a mom, she’s so awesome that her babies have gained enough weight and have started nursing well enough to be sent home today. She cried, gave me a hug and then we sat holding her babies for a while. I love my job!

    Hi to you, too! Love these pictures.

    Weekend highlight? Getting a pool up in the backyard after almost a month of working on it.
    Listening and dancing to some really great music while cleaning house.

    Scrambling to catch the Ice Cream truck!

    Sisters are such a blessing! I’m so glad to have mine nearby. One of the highlights of my weekend was a few special moments with my daughter, on the beach at night, sharing a fresh crepe filled with strawberries, chocolate sauce, and whip cream. A wonderful memory.

    How lovely! The highlight of my weekend was sweeping out the shed in our garden and making it into a play house for my daughters, then we had bacon sandwiches in the “playhouse” because they were having so much fun!!

  14. Philippa says:

    Gorgeous photos! How neat to get to spend time with your sisters. My sister lives in the North Island of NZ and I hardly ever get to see her which makes me sad. We are chalk and cheese but when we go shopping once in a blue moon, we have such fun!

    Highlight of my weekend was taking photos on the beach 6 mins drive from home as stormy weather was approaching. The rain was pouring down and I felt like the only person on earth. Lisa, check out my blog to see a photo very much like your first one in this post but with a totally different, wintery mood! Couldn’t resist taking photos of my gumboots in the surf (oh, with me in them!! giggle).. Smiles

    Hi Lisa!!

    My weekend hightlights were: returning home from a 4 day camping trip with my daughter’s class – then seeing my son who had been gone on a 9 day trip with his class!! Seeing my sweet sister and getting 10 loads of laundry done – yes 10! Lots of dirty camping clothes!!

    Love the H I letters!!

  16. Rustown Mom says:

    I watched my daughter graduate from high school – a very *high* highlight indeed!!

  17. Krystina says:

  19. Julie says:

    Hi Lisa,
    I love your photos…they are so pretty! What editing software do you use? I need a good, easy to use program….

    Thanks so much!
