The Color Factory in San Francsco

The Color Factory, a pop-up museum in San Francisco, California

Awhile back my friend Jordan over at Oh Happy Day announced a new venture, a pop-up color museum called The Color Factory. Although color isn’t historically my thing, I really appreciate a well-curated design-minded collection so I took my little ones to check it out. They had a blast exploring all of the rooms and it made for some really nice photographs.

Glamping in California, Redwoods & Sea

Glamping in California

This summer we’ve spent a lot of time here at home in California. The weather here is usually moderate year-round, so awhile back we took a few days to go glamping in one of our favorite places, in the coastal redwoods.

I live less than an hour south of San Francisco, but in all honesty I don’t get to spend a lot of free time there. I’m always going up for work events and meetings, but it’s rare that I get to go up for a day of fun. When I do, it’s usually in the Summer and it’s spent on the quiet side of San Francisco, the beach side! Today I’ve partnered with & Other Stories. to share a little bit of my adventure there with my friend Elisabeth and a few of my favorites in that area.

I think about the years that we’ve spent together, both married and unmarried, and I’m so thankful that I’ve had him as a partner in life for over a decade now. This year I chose to return to the places we spent the best day of our life at, and today I’m sharing it all with you, from packing to adventuring and beyond.
