Wow, it has been a very long while since I have put together a Photo Fun Day Friday post. It has really been a whirlwind of a few weeks, the holiday season seriously flew by, in a blink of an eye it went from Thanksgiving to New Years, it’s insane. So much going on! OK enough chatter, here’s a glimpse of the last few weeks. This might be the biggest Photo Fun Day Friday, yet!
Hope you all had a lovely holiday season and are excited for all that lies ahead in 2014! I know I am.
Our Thanksgiving Day early morning beach walk.
A boy and his mother!! Seriously, how cute are Jpeg and Indie? This is a rare site to see these two so sweetly lying together.
Sometimes, you just have to have chocolate for breakfast.
Old-timey Christmas Carolers on the beach right around the corner from our house.
The floating Christmas trees in the lagoon by our house. These make me so happy.
Took a fun holiday trip to Disneyland with Meg and her adorable fam. Such a fun day! I love this girl!
Yoga on the beach, in December. I still cannot get over how amazing this is!
Gettin’ wild on my mat with my Teeki pants.
Had a little holiday cocktail party at our house in early December. Of course Lucy was invited.
Ran into Kelly from The Spunky Coconut at the Renegade Craft Fair in LA. Such a lovely surprise.
How amazing is this sky? A regular occurrence during the winter months out here. It is magical.
A view from the christmas lights boat tour in Newport Beach. So amazing.
Our little Seri girl got sick, which meant I had to skip the road trip to San Francisco for our last holiday show of the year. I stayed home, nursed my baby back to health and we cuddled and watched Christmas movies together. Not a bad deal, afterall.
Our little lady, Indie.
This is our orange tree. I still cannot even believe we have an orange tree!! They are incredible, too!
Kombucha beer. This stuff is seriously good and yes, it’s gluten-free.
Pho. One of my absolutely favorite comfort foods!
This year’s Christmas tree!
The castle at Disneyland. From one of our holiday visits.
Griswold House. People out here take decorating very seriously.
I made a super yummy dark chocolate peppermint tart for our Christmas Eve dinner that we hosted. I used this crust recipe, this filling (though I went with 10 ounces of dark chocolate and 3/4 cup of coconut milk, I left out the berries and I added some peppermint extract) and I topped with crushed candy canes.
Waiting for santa on Christmas Eve.
Us at the beach on Christmas day. A surreal experience.
I made a homemade Tom and Jerry, a little taste of Buffalo at the holidays, here in California.
Our cabin in the woods in Big Bear for New Years. 4 days of crisp cool mountain air with lovely friends. It was amazing.
Big Bear Lake
My friend Debbie and I, New Years Eve.
The crew of New Year’s Eve ladies for our Big Bear rager. Such a fun night! I made a feast, we played games, rang in both the east coast new year and the west coast, enjoyed the hot tub and probably drank more prosecco than we should have 😉
I am not sure I will ever get over the incredible beauty here in California. Seriously amazing, everywhere you look. This was a view on our drive home from Big Bear.
