This past weekend’s warm summer-like temps were perfect for venturing out to the La Jolla Open Aire Market for a refreshing drink, some baked goods, and an eyeful of bright blossoms and fruit. So, balancing a drink in one hand and my camera in the other, I was lucky enough to capture some spring-y images that will hopefully put you in the mood for the upcoming season!
Due to a busy schedule at the end of last year, I had plenty of excuses for ordering pick up or eating out for dinner. It’s nice and convenient, no grocery lists, no clean up…but what a tough habit to break! However, time permitting, I love a home cooked meal, especially on weekdays! Not to mention it’s more cost effective and typically healthier when someone doesn’t plop down a nice warm bread basket or offer decadent desserts. Recently, I made a real effort to start looking for simple side dishes that I could incorporate into my meals and I found this delicious parmesan potato dish on epicurious and knew it was a must-try. I suggest making enough to last a few nights plus after being refrigerated it kind of enhances the flavors a little. I promise it will likely become one of your favorites!
I would like to say that I never surrender to the latest trends, but if it’s comfy and works with multiple outfits…then, I’m in! The slip on sneaker is gaining fashion momentum for spring and I had my eyes focused on a few pairs before ultimately deciding on these. I’m patiently awaiting their arrival and have already conjured up a number of suitable outfits that I plan to wear with them. I have no plans to invest in a second pair, but I am seriously lusting after these as well as the ones below. Are you on board with the slip on sneaker trend?
