Dear Loves,

I am writing to you from a balcony overlooking the historic boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey. It is beautiful here - a wonderful place for a family vacation. But it is not just a vacation, it is a very special time to be spent with my Nana, {my mom's mom.} My Mom spent her summers here scooping ice cream, while my Nana was selling vacation homes, as one of the first female realtors on the island.

Let me take you back a moment {in explanation of my absence/missing you:} After our day spent at The Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, {which was amazing} we drove out to the Napa Valley {one of my favorite places on earth.} We stayed in the most amazing "vacation rental by owner;" and enjoyed driving all over the beautiful valley, sipping wine, and soaking it all in! {lots of pictures to be shared when we get back to cali}

We flew back to home on Monday afternoon and left Tuesday morning {way too early} on a flight out of LAX to here. We are here. We are having an amazing time. I can't wait to share it all with you.

In the meantime, I hope you are having a beautiful week! I look forward to catching up with each and every one of you when we return back home . . .

Sending you lots of love,



  1. What an amazing week-music in San Francisco, wine and sunshine in Napa and custard in NJ? It sounds like the very best summer to me!

  2. You're in NJ??? Do you KNOW how close you are to me right now? I'm seriously a hop, skip, and jump away (I'm in a town called Holmdel, NJ). I hope you're having a great time here! If you have a free moment and want to meet up, let me know (but no pressure -- I know this is family time).

  3. Ohhh..OC, NJ its such a PERFECT beach town!! Im so glad you are enjoying it!! I cant wait to hear/see pics of Napa, Hubby and I are going there for the first time in October!! ( for a vineyard wedding!!) and by the way, just reading your description of your mom growing up scooping ice cream, makes me want to read a book about her life.Im not joking. :)

  4. You are on a roll! Have the best time & I'll hopefully see you Friday! xx
