In the garden

Josh and I managed to get some spring cleaning done yesterday and we cleaned and organized our balcony garden. We planted some strawberries, cleaned, pruned, watered and fertilized everything. Who says you need a yard to have a garden? The plants looked so lovely and happy this morning, I had to share. Enjoy!

Julie and Lumi

I just found this adorable drawing, collaborated by Julie Morstad and Fanja Ralison of Le train Fantome. It depicts Fanja Ralison's lovely characters, Lumi and Lewis, picking mushrooms together. I'm sure there is a place in my home for this sweet print.

Valentines Day: Part 2

Here it is the middle of March and I finally have the time to finish my Valentines Day post. This was probably the best Valentines Day I've ever had and it was definitely the best date I've ever had. Josh started the day by taking me to one of my favorite places, Summers Past Farms. Summers Past Farms is a charming little place with gardens, a small nursery, a handmade soap shop, a coffee bar and a gift shop with adorable garden themed gifts.

Later we went to the amazing Stephanie's Bakery. Stephanie's is an all vegan bakery with the most amazing pizza and cakes! Josh and I shared a handmade pesto pizza and a slice of passion vanilla cake with fresh kiwi and "cream cheese" frosting. YUMMY!!! They actually made our wedding cake 3 years ago and it was so delicious that it won over even the most skeptical guests. 

We ended the day with a delectable 5 course meal at Cafe India, probably the best Indian food in San Diego. It was a truly incredible day and I feel so lucky to be married to such a sweet and thoughtful guy!
