Hello friends, happy weekend! It’s been raining for days and days here and we will have much more next week – welcome water for parched California and a chance to bring out the cute rain boots! We’re settling into a cozy weekend of Christmas movies and visits with friends, also partaking in a some gift shopping around town.

I can’t find my two sweet faced children anywhere, a zombie 49er and a werewolf have replaced them and now they’re growling and demanding sugar. #saveme I was going to start a new blog series for the holidays today, but the local festivities and party preparations have taken over my schedule so I’m giving in. Tomorrow we’re celebrating Halloween around town, I hope you are all doing the same!
