Pictures from Easter Weekend (s)

I spent the weekend home in San Luis Obispo, California. And though my entire family was not home for the Holiday weekend, that SLO sunshine...sure felt nice. 

Sometimes, a trip home is what one needs to kind of... recharge. And also, to be reminded. Of the simple things in life that too often go under appreciated. The sun shining on your shoulders, with no wind whatsoever. Parking spots, like, everywhere (hello, SF?). The ridiculously delicious coffee brewing in your Mom's kitchen.

Because let's get real. Everything tastes better when someone else makes it, right? Oh. And home is where you find evidence pictures. Of when life was far less complicated. As I get older, though, home becomes more delicious every time I visit.

My big sister, Katie, back in the day. Isn't she the cutest bunny?

Easter, 1990 with our best family friends, The Brocks. 

Mediterranean Chickens slow roasting

Julia Child, our cat. Yes, we name all our cats after Chefs. And yes, I love cats. Don't judge me.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend too.

    Glad you got to go home for Easter! Great pics and that Mediterranean Chicken looks killer! Is there a recipe available?

  4. Love the pic of you and your mom with the cake!

  5. That cake is precious! Hope you had a great weekend!

  6. Ummm...just saw the photo of us all from Easter circa 1990 - loved that pink dress and my french-braided hair with bangs....actually pretty sure that was '88/' and J.B. were babies! x
