The sand in california.

Freshly pressed.

Yesterday I got home from a little shopping spree just to find out that my blog got featured on WordPress’s Freshly Pressed page! So exciting! I had a 4000% increase in clicks the last two days, how crazy is that? I’m a little proud that my blog was picked out of 774,173 blog posts. :) And a big THANK YOU for all the sweet comments I received. Really made my day!

Well, what else have I been up to the last couple of days?

[hanging out at a friend’s place – why can’t I have a pool in my backyard?]

[playing around with my camera. love the reflections in the water.]

[found this little gem on State St the other day. One Love!]

[saying goodbye to my lovely friend Tess who went back to Sweden on Wednesday. I miss her tons already.]
