A Sunny Valentines Day...

It felt so much like summer today, warm and sunny. Everywhere you looked people were wearing shorts, sundresses and flip flops. It's hard to believe that some parts of the world are covered in snow. So we headed to one of my favorite places....
The Beach


We could even see a little bit of Catalina.
Sand Berms still piled high protecting homes from high surf and high tide.



This is where I spent weekends and summers growing up{second floor, right on the boardwalk} my Dad had the ultimate Bachelor pad!

This has always been my favorite house, a Cottage on the Beach~ could it get much better than that???
I finally got around to re-doing my bathroom. About a week ago I stripped the paint, sanded and primed it{all in one day} I wasn't sure my hands and forearms were ever going to be the same! So now that I've recovered, it's time to paint. I'm using mint green with pink and white accents. I just bought these cute cottage prints that I plan on framing and hanging in there.
I also bought these darling Tea Towels, they were just too cute to pass up!

Beautiful pictures! I grew up in Ventura and miss the beach every single day now that I am in the Midwest. Always on a beautiful clear day I could see the Channel Islands!

I grew up in SoCal and live in Idaho now. I was just thinking to myself yesterday, today is nice enough I may break out my flip-flops tomorrow, then woke up this morning to SNOW :S

Well, I hope you enjoy it!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
