Travel // San Francisco, CA

The past week I ventured West to visit one of my favorite cities, San Francisco. Bouncing between work and play, it was the perfect amount of relaxation and exploration. Man did we cover some ground... breakfasts at Flour & Co., Basik, Outerlands, lunches at Sol Food (Marin), Cavallopoint (Marin), Boot and Shoe Service (Oakland),  cocktails at Hi-Lo Club, Trick Dog, Coqueta, Hard Water, and dinners at Liholiho Yacht ClubFlour + Water, Warriors victory parade viewing with Juan and best of all, a hike up to Alamere Falls in Bolinas. I love this city and spending time with the best hosts around, Kate + KP. 

Travel // St. George Island

How is it June and our family vacation with E's side is over already!? Time sure does fly when you're having fun. This past week was spent on St. George Island in Florida. Some highlights include: beach time, pool time, deep sea fishing with Captain Clint, oysters at Eddy Teach's, a visit to Apalachicola for oysters at Hole in the Wall and beer at Oyster City Brewing Co, home cooked meals and time with family. Can we go back already?

Tremont Renovation // Final Touches + Moving In

We have officially started the move in (and slept at the house for the first time last night!). We absolutely love this place. The past couple weeks have been a huge push to get everything done and most of it was checked off our list -- all plumbing, all tiling, painting, and last but certainly not least MOVING! Room by room before and afters coming soon...

 (^ Master bath tiling and plumbing is finished, shower door is all that's left! Love this)

 (^ A lot has happened in the master bedroom - we finished putting in pipes and shelving in the closets and filled them up, Randy brought over our amazing barn wood bed frame and we took Cyd & Bennett's old dressers that look like they were meant for this space!)

(^ The front bedroom -- still waiting to finish this up, as we had some closet issues that are wrapping up this week!)

 (^ The back bedroom -- started to move in our things for one of our guest bedroom)

 (^ Dining room light and art has been hung, chairs + sheepskins have been set around the table)

 (^ Living room furniture arrived, bookcases arrived and have been filled, rug has been put down and we are waiting on a table from our very favorite wood worker, Randy)

 (^ Kitchen is complete! Appliances are in, plumbing is done, and all cabinets are fully stocked!)

(^ The bar is almost done -- still need to drop in the sink and have the plumbing hooked up and counter installed, but we're close!)

 (^ Guest bath is finished and it is simply perfect. Time to book some guests on our calendar!)


This past weekend was spent celebrating Marysa in none other than Vegas. We kicked the weekend off right with a pool day at the Cosmopolitan, In-N-Out delivered to our suite, a hilarious trip to Thunder Down Under, and drinks + dancing at Surrender and XS. Saturday was spent pool side at the day club Drai's, dinner at the amazing China Poblano, followed by a night out at Marquee with great views thanks to our new friends. Many thanks to Kat and Julie for planning the perfect weekend -- missing everyone so much already!
