we had a wonderful afternoon exploring the island with friends. fifty-two people live there year-round (!) and there are no restaurants on the island. i'd love to go back in the summer for a relaxing getaway - truly away from it all.

it's been far too long. in the past few weeks, i kept sitting myself down to write a post ... and just couldn't.
in the past few weeks, months even - i've just felt such an overwhelming connection to it all. well, what i should really say is to the internet world, and less of a connection to the outside world, to myself. my step back wasn't necessarily intentional, but it was necessary. it can be so easy to get caught "living to write" instead of just living. i want to be intentional in my life and in this space.
let me tell you, i've missed this blog, dearly. i've awoken in the middle of the night thinking about writing. i've missed you all. i'm so happy to be typing these words. i'm so happy to be back. thank you for bearing with me and giving me the space for quietude. xo

passover is one of my favorite holidays. i think it comes down to the comfort food, family, and a still somewhat new tradition for me. i love to entertain, but lately, i've been craving the comfort that comes from doing less. i've taken a backseat and let others cook, clean and decorate. it's nice to let the pressure slide off from time to time and really enjoy filling your home with aromas and people you care about.

i was so happy to be able to fit in a mere 36 hours in la with one of my oldest and dearest friends. you know the friends that you always miss? that's kasey. we barely slept that weekend. stayed awake talking in the dark like the pre-teens we once were. i love to be reminded of that time - and spend time with those people that know me so well. i feel so lucky. xo

we spent the late afternoon walking around and stopping in various wine tasting rooms. our favorites were scheid vineyards and the cheese shop. carmel is quite possibly one of the most romantic towns. i kept waiting for a proposal or something equally romantic to happen right in front of us. we ate dinner at casanova - highly recommend!
most of all, i loved the sunshine and beautiful flowers that crept up along every corner of carmel's charming streets.
