I just returned for a wonderful, almost transformative, visit to the west coast and can’t wait to share all of the details with you over the next couple of weeks. To start off with, here is little taste of what I did:

On Tuesday April 28th, the day my book launched, my friend held a book party for me at her house. She was so generous to do this! I made a few dishes from my book to pass: Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake, Zucchini Applesauce Bread, and Bacon & Green Chili Quiche. The Family Calendar Cookbook

There were lots of lots of gorgeous fresh flowers everywhere. Flowers are the key to livening up any party space!

While we were in San Francisco we hit a few of our favorite spots like Sausalito for fish tacos…

Mid-week my husband met me in San Francisco and we drove out to Napa Valley for a blissful five day vacation without children. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Stay tuned for all of the details next week. In the mean time, here are a few pictures to enjoy!
