As most of you know, my husband, Neil, and I try and take the time to go on a date night once month. In a perfect world, we would do this more often. However, juggling the kids, sports practice, ballet, work and everything else, it’s pretty amazing if we escape to dinner alone at all. We chose to take a trip out to San Francisco for the day and eat dinner at Palomino.
My friend Megan and I, recently met for coffee at our favorite local French bakery, Casse Croûte in downtown Livermore. It’s so nice to get out with other women and socialize with someone over the age of two. It’s not something I get to do that often, but what a great escape it is when I can. Our monthly chats are something I so look forward to. It’s like therapy and we can vent about whatever we want. Megan also takes some of the pictures for my blog and I teach her two adorable daughters ballet.
Sitting around this morning, I realized I didn’t write a blog about this chambray dress I wore to Rubino Vineyards last month. I received so many messages asking about this dress, and so here it is. This dress may be sold out, but I have added some links to a few others that are similar and totally affordable. So check it out!
Every year, as a family, we schedule a family photo session. My husband always jokes that there isn’t enough wall space in our home for all of the pictures we take, but I feel it’s very important. Someday, we will have family pictures for each year and when the kids are grown, I will make a book of every family picture we took together. So while we may not have the wall space now, I know we will cherish each and every single one that we take. For now, I will switch out some older pictures and replace them with some of our new ones. They are just too adorable not to!
