Today I am writing from Marin, where the boy and I are spending the next few days with his family. It has been such a pleasure to spend quality time with his three nieces. Babies are so full of wonder and excitement, which is completely infectious. I know James and I will both be sad when Sunday rolls around and we have to head home. In the meantime, here are a few things of late that have made me stop and smile... 

  • Weekend trips to two of my favorite places, Ojai and Marin.

  • Rediscovering my vintage 1920's gold purse in the attic. 
  • An autumnal bouquet of fuchsia and burgundy blooms. 

  • Persimmons making their way into markets.
  • Baking popovers {recipe here} to go along side my favorite butternut squash soup {recipe here}. 

Happy Weekend! xo
