Happy Weekend! We’ve been on a roadtrip the last week visiting family in Utah. San Francisco weather is so moderate that its been nice to have some real hot weather, especially for the 4th of July. Today we are headed to southern Utah to the red rocks and desert. I’m excited to take my kids on hikes and show them the red rock canyons I grew up in. How was your week?

I’m finally getting the chance to go through our apartment and organize and purge. It feels so good to get rid of stuff! I’m by no means a minimalist but I’ve realized lately that everything we own just takes up space and that it takes time to manage it all. The less stuff you have, the more time you have. So I’ve been going through everything we own and donating all of it. My new motto is SIMPLIFY! WE have some fun plans this weekend that include a barbecue with friends in Palo Alto and then meeting some friends for the Mountain Play. We are also going to try to squeeze in a bike ride down to the Ferry Building on our new bikes. Have a good one amigos!
ps: I’m partnering with Method for a big giveaway at the Oh Happy Day Facebook page!
Oh man, that move was brutal. It’s been about 5 weeks now and I’m starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I’m finally getting caught up on email and trying to get back into a schedule. We are now working on getting our art studio on Valencia Street back together. I have big plans for the space–I’m hoping to start the Community Craft Nights up again and take advantage of having that great space in San Francisco. Do you have anything fun planned this weekend? I am walking the Commute with some friends (50 Miles!) And I really want to go see the new Wes Anderson Movie. Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend! The last few weeks have been crazy with the renovations and unpacking. We moved in this week and our stuff doesn’t even fit in our apartment! We knew that would be the case so we ‘ve been working to categorize everything into donate/sell/store piles. We’ve made a dent in the solid walls of moving boxes but still have a ways to go. Paul’s awesome parents are super generous and have come out for the week to help us do everything from babysitting, painting, rewiring lamps, child proofing the deck, etc. I honestly don’t know how we would have got along without them! Thanks Don + Linda! We are going to be unpacking all weekend but we are hoping to get away for an afternoon to go to the Maker Faire! (Have you ever been? It’s amazing!) I hope you all have a happy weekend.

I bought a cheap vintage tufted sofa off Craigslist and it needs recovering. I’ve been looking at inspiration for fabrics.
This is how I want to dress (the new Madewell lookbook is amazing!)
I call these my “mom shoes” because they are the only heels I can wear and chase kids in.

We’re back in San Francisco! I’ve missed everyone and everything. I can’t believe a week ago we were in Paris. I know I’ll get homesick for Paris but right now I’m so happy to be back. We are still getting settled and are crashing at my brother and sister in law’s house but hopefully we’ll have a place to live soon. We’re having to make a lot of big decisions like buying a car, renting an apartment etc. in a short period of time. It’s been stressful and I’ve been feeling overwhelmed. I keep reminding myself that in a few weeks all this will be settled and we’ll be riding our bikes down to the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. We just have to get through the next few weeks. I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
