From the Passenger’s Seat…

| On the way | Day One | Day Two | Day Three | Last Day | We spent the last few days up north of Santa Barbara camping at the beach. It was a great time — the girls… Continue reading ⟩⟩


A good friend of mine is like this crazy good cook, baker, and gardener. She jarred so much jam from the fruit in her backyard that she had to ‘force’ me to take some home ;) But seriously… I wondered… Continue reading ⟩⟩
