Welcome to the weekend view.
This weekend it is all about family, sprinklers & project progress.
We have had a busy week (and weekend) over here gearing up for a family get together.
We were planning a family get together- but a few last minute additions meant the party was pretty full and fabulous. My husbands mom and her boyfriend came for a visit – and we have not seen them in several years- and we also had my sweet nieces Elodie and Willa and family come and stay as well.
We even brought the dollhouse my dad built for me when I was a little girl
downstairs so that the girls could play with it.
We were just missing my oldest son and his girlfriend- they live in Las Vegas and weren’t able to get over to California for the day. But there were a ton of laughs and memories in the making.

Like everyone sitting on the lawn when the automatic sprinklers came on.
We all laughed as everyone got up and darted out of the way to avoid getting soaked.
Definitely one for the memory books.
We had 9 dogs in the house for the party- running around, barking, rolling in the grass.

Thankfully, they all got along well and other than the barking on occasion were all well behaved and enjoyed relaxing out in the summer sunshine.
And they were all pretty exhausted by the end of the evening. Love this photo of Brawner snoozing away on the settee.
We are in the middle of a fairly chunky project over here that involves something dreamy, something inspired and something fun. We had a bit of a delay getting started – but on Friday, my son Cullan came over and we managed to get some big progress done. A couple more work days and will be sharing all about what we are up to.
Coming this week-
Lots of busy behind the scenes work on the agenda- and coming your way on the blog
I will be sharing more about that incredible winery and farmhouse we just stayed in- as well as something fun for you
A few travel tips for saving money in Europe
And a guest bedroom refresh that I am excited to share.
Happy weekend everyone.
