We love visiting San Diego any chance we get. There’s so much to see and do and the overall vibe is relaxing with great weather and beautiful beaches. It’s super easy to get to San Diego from the Bay Area with just an hour direct flight from any of the Bay Area airports which makes it…
Strawberry Yogurt Cookies with Alove Yogurt
With summer here, strawberries are once again plentiful and sweet, much to our delight. With the warmer weather we wanted to find a light recipe that would combine our love for strawberries with our love for desserts.
Family Ski Trip to Banff and Lake Louise
We visited Banff National Park in Canada a couple of summers ago and fell in love with the nature and landscape. Being avid skiers, we knew we had to make a trip back to experience their amazing ski terrain and to see the park in the wintertime.

A Holiday Stay in Temecula
For the Holidays, we wanted to do a small getaway with family somewhere not too far and not too crowded. Since we have family in the South, we decided Temecula would be the perfect place for a visit.
Temecula is known as the Wine Country of Southern California located an hour Southeast of LA and an hour Northeast of San Diego. Wineries fill the hillsides and a lot of history can be found in Old Town Temecula with buildings dating from the 1800s.

South Lake Tahoe Guide
South Lake Tahoe in the fall is gorgeous. The weather is perfect and it is somewhat of an off-season with fewer people. When you typically think of South Lake, you probably think of the casinos and ski resorts. Those are great activities, but since we visited in the early fall, we wanted to get outdoors to enjoy mother nature.
Everything I Know About Cloth Diapering
After becoming pregnant last year, all things baby suddenly caught my attention. Talking to seasoned parents and new fellow parents alike, a lot of the conversations involved the talk of poop and diapers. Not surprisingly though since newborns go through about ten diapers a day and have the amazing ability to pee or poo in…
A Coastal Getaway to Mendocino
Mendocino is a beautiful seaside town brimming with character and a culture all its own. A weekend away will slow down your busy life for a bit and allow you to enjoy the simple and finer things in life. It’s close enough to the Bay Area that you can do a quick road trip, but it’s far enough away to feel like you are far from city life. The temperatures are cool and foggy year round, but on lucky days you can catch some sun rays.
