hello happy flowers

hello busy week getting ready for a family vacation

hello laundry and house cleaning and packing

hello coffee {something i can still enjoy on the south beach diet}

hello lots and lots of fresh veggies and lean meats and cheeses

hello sugar cravings that haven’t gone away–but i haven’t caved!

hello mr. starfish, sorry to bother you but we wanted a better look

hello swim suits and sunscreen and flip flops

hello beach and lake and cousins we can’t wait to hang out with!

hello mild summer on the central coast {it hasn’t hardly been over 75*}

hello palm trees and foggy mornings

hello monday, it’s going to be a fabulous week! are you ready?!
