It felt more like the beginning of summer than spring this weekend! The weather was glorious and we had a beautiful weekend with family. Jeff’s sister flew in from Boston on Friday so Saturday was spent preparing a nice, early dinner for Jeff’s family. We went to the farmers market in the morning, bought ourselves some succulents for the house (I’ve been wanting more house plants), and did our usual produce shopping. Ellie enjoyed chewing on a potato she snatched from Jeff. Jeff made the most delicious shepherd’s pie for his family, even adding in a few parsnips from our own garden (yay!). We took a dog walk along the beach to end the evening. Sunday we started off with Jeff’s shepherd’s pie for breakfast (we jazzed it up with a fried egg and some avocado) and then we headed off with my folks down to meet Jeff’s folks in Santa Barbara (Jeff’s parents are leaving for a short trip to San Francisco tomorrow and then heading back to Boston on Friday). We stopped off at the Santa Barbara Art Show to see a wonderful quilter and blogging friend, Cory. It was exciting to finally meet someone I had been following for awhile now and she was just so sweet!! Her quilts and quilty things were beautiful and inspiring! I wanted to buy everything she had but this time around walked away with an adorable sewing needle book and an adorable bib for Ellie. Check out her beautiful things here! At the art show, we also bought some long awaited wind chimes. I’ve been wanting some for the front porch since we moved in and Jeff bought himself a handmade beer stein, of course. It was a really lovely weekend. I’m happily exhausted. How was your weekend?

  1. how neat that you met Cory! We are patiently awaiting mild weather here on the east coast. We enjoy going to craft fairs and browsing around (not to mention buying!). Looks like you had a lovely outing!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE All of it! Amelia loves those bells in her kindermusik class. Beautiful weekend for a beautiful family.

  3. Laundry in the morning Saturday, art show also in the afternoon, sold my “Sunshine” painting (yay), Frost Sunday morning, not even spring here yet, breakfast out Sunday morning at our favorite restaurant, hit the co-op for our organic veggies and assorted other items, visited friends in the afternoon who are buying our Mazda CX7, making us a one car family, then home for a simple supper, a bit of tv then also very tired and hit the sack. Nice weekend with mostly sunshine though. Love yours, love you, great pics, Summer.
