Hello friends! This weekend I snuck away for dinner with my sisters in Ojai {about 30 miles inland from Santa Barbara} and we stayed the night. Then I woke up early and made it back in time for church and a chili cook off. It was a full weekend–and lots of fun.

I’ve got pictures to share from Ojai. It’s a sweet little town full of art, some cute shops and some small hotels. My favorite shop was Fig–full of succulents and handmade items. So much inspiration! The time with my sisters was good for my soul. We talked laughed and ate good food. Pretty much perfect, right?

How about some hellos for a new week?
