A Mendocino Mama Trip

Mendocino Headlands State Park

This post is image heavy.

A few months back I took the boys with me for a little mama getaway to Mendocino. It was their Christmas gift from us and I was so excited to share with them a place I fell deep in love with during our last visit. All I could think about was how fun it would be for them to explore the wonders of the Northern California coastline. Being born and raised in California I’ve always been drawn to the northern coastline’s ruggedness. When you take time and look closer there is also beauty to be found in the tiny details, from the patterns in the rock to the tiny plants that grow along the coastal scrub areas. I’m happy to share it with you on Mother’s Day!

Last month we got to visit one of my favorite nearby destinations, Downtown Napa. During our stay we were hosted by Archer Hotel Napa. I had it on my wishlist for a long time so I was really excited to get to stay there, and from the photos I’m sure you can see why. The decor of the hotel was right up my alley and I’ve always loved to find home decor inspiration from hotels. Today I’m sharing a few more photos of our room and some tips to get the same look in your own home.

24 Hours in Downtown Napa

24 Hours in Downtown Napa

This post is sponsored by Downtown Napa.

Last year the North Bay area was ravaged by fires, including many parts of Napa Valley. As a place close to both my heart and home, I felt so deeply for so many of my fellow Californian’s in trouble. Many of my friends and family personally donated their time and resources to helping rebuild the area. This year Downtown Napa reached out to me to come check the area out and there’s no way I could say no. My last visit to Downtown Napa was one of my favorites, and I learned how walkable it actually was. This time was no different, so today I’ve teamed up with Downtown Napa to sharing my 24 hours there with you!

Fall Weekend in Monterey, California

This post is sponsored by Monterey Tides.

Last month I took a trip with my boys to Monterey, California to catch the last of summer’s warm weather. It was a beautiful weekend and Monterey Tides was kind enough to host us for it. I actually stayed at the hotel when I was in high school during Yearbook Camp, so I was curious to see the updates. During our trip we stayed pretty busy and had a blast, so today I’m sharing the details with you.
