a hot beautiful wonderful weekend

a beautiful walk along the beach on saturday morning. m went for a swim in the ocean to cool down it was so warm. i just love this shot.
then after a full beach day we came back for dinner to stay cool somewhat. it was filled with great food, wonderful friends and delightful conversation.

the weather this past weekend was glorious. very warm but hey if you know me i love the heat!

today i am incredibly grateful for...the opportunity to live in santa barbara.

a backyard dinner

this week no traveling to new location. rather a special location to all of us there. our dear j's backyard. it was a perfect evening over eighty degrees until about nine pm. the food of course was delish! a rather funny option for a hot night but really it was quite refreshing. homemade tortilla soup, southwest salad, lavender lemon water, guacamole and blue corn chips, and for dessert, cinnamon grahams with vanilla marshmellows and dark organic chocolate. it was a perfect mexican feast.
today i am incredibly grateful for...the friendship of the three women i shared dinner with. i truly value each of you and the friendship that you share with me. you all bless me so much.

santa barbara tuscan dinner

tonight was the second wednesday night dinner party for me. j did a wonderful job cooking us a tasty tuscan feast. it was divine. pork chops with a sweet mustard bacon sauce, grilled vegetables and rice pilaf...of course all organic. and to top it off a peach berry cobbler with whipped cream. this week we found a park in our little beach town and again laughed a lot. it was lovely. thanks j for the wonderful scrumptous feast.
