Sterling Vineyards


My Finnish fam is in town and they wanted to see the Napa Valley Vineyards. Nick and I don’t drink alcohol, but we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to venture out to the vineyards because they are so stunning. A friend recommended we go to Sterling in Napa Valley and I’m so glad we did. They have an air tram that takes you up the mountain so you can see an aerial view of the vineyards. So cool! And so beautiful from the top. 

We’ve had a wonderful weekend being tourists in our new city. My family being here makes me so happy. They live halfway across the world, so it’s hard I don’t get to see them as much as I’d like, but I feel so close to them. They’re hilarious and so generous and kind-hearted. I love them.

Hope y’all have a wonderful Sabbath. 

XOXO,

Fall Fashion 2017

In honor of NYFW, which is full steam ahead, I decided to do a little fashion post of my own with my favorite fall trends. On a side note, I like a lot of the fashion shows in New York, but I also think a lot of them have some ugly pieces for a lot of money…. haha. I do love the creativity and seeing all the fabrics and patterns, however!

So, if I were to describe my own style, I think I would tend to gravitate towards more classic pieces (less money because they’ll be in style for a longer time) with a modern twist. Those probably aren’t even the correct words, but you know, for those of us who aren’t professional fashion designers, hopefully that makes sense.

Here are some of my favorite items going into fall 2017:

Chunky Sweaters under $25

 

Overall Dresses under $60

Loafers under $50

What trends are you liking this fall? This will be my first fall in Northern California. I don’t know what to expect, but I’m excited about it.
XOXO,

Moving

The rumors are true- we are headed to California and we are excited! Nick is starting grad school & I will be looking for a job. HMU if you know of anything! 🙃 

We will miss Texas, though. We have both worked for some amazing companies. I have loved working for Southwest Airlines and the Texas Rangers. ✈️ + ⚾️ I will miss the Tex Mex so much. It’s the best thing ever. Also, I’ll miss the people! I loved my church, my coworkers, and friends. 

That said, we are excited for new adventures, the beautiful scenery of California, and new people! ❤️ Come visit us?

XOXO,
