life's hustle

life seems like it has been nothing but a busy hustle these days. i hosted a bridal shower for a dear friend, m had her first day of toddler program preschool, my mom is in NY for 2 weeks and my mother-in-law has been in Europe for almost a month, we've had non-negotiable home repairs (which suck), i am working all week next week, we have an out of town wedding and then i am so lucky to be a bridesmaid in a wedding in October and just the normal busy on top of all this.

the place we are so lucky to call home, the beautiful Central Coast of California, hosts a huge event called Savor the Central Coast. It is put on by Sunset Magazine and a great friend of mine is head of the design team. She has asked me to work for her this year, mainly being "her" when she can't be, and i of course said yes. i am so excited to be out of the house and doing something i really enjoy next week. now the schedule is going to be a challenge and i am already feeling sad about leaving m that much. m-f allllll day long. she will be with boss man, gigi and grandma and i know she will be loved and cared for just like i would do. but this is a first for us.

here are some photos of the hustle!

Opening Weekend 2013

our little family of four went hunting for opening weekend of dove season over labor day. we had such a great time! m loved the birdies, yes, even when they were dead. she gave them loves, tried to give them kisses and the guns did not scare her a bit. growing up in a hunting family, ive always been given flak for being pro hunting. so i feel the need to say that we eat every bird shot, every deer shot and every pig shot.

we celebrated Jack's 10th birthday with a pool party filled with hot dogs, burgers, family and cake! getting together with family is my favorite way to spend a weekend. we all get along so well and it just makes me smile seeing m loved so so much.
