Awhile back, my friend Reichel and I met up for a coffee date at Trouble Coffee in Oakland, California to plan one of our Blog Exchange events. I snapped some photos of the gorgeous white space, and she snapped some of my outfit. I had a coffee with almond milk, and bought a couple of lavender shortbread cookies to take home for the boys. Founded by Giulietta Carrelli, the name Trouble was inspired by the people who helped her when she was in trouble. There’s a wonderful piece about her story on NPR’s This American Life program. In short, the coffee was amazing. Have some toast too.

Maker Faire Bay Area 2016

Maker Faire in San Francisco, California

Remember that time we went to a magical place called Maker Faire? It hasn’t been that long, but it has been a year and we’re so excited to say that we attended again this year. It was my husband’s 5th time, Aiden’s 4th, and Søren and I’s 2nd. We’re yuggeeeeee fans of Maker Faire, and rightfully so, it’s known as the biggest show and tell on Earth. I’ve shared some of our favorite Maker Faire moments below, from #robotdanceparty to drone racing and beyond!

Awhile back I was invited to attend a little Mother’s Day get-together at the goop MRKT pop-up shop in San Francisco. It’s located in the Frank Lloyd Wright building, brought back to it’s full glory by Steven Volpe (more of the making here). Isn’t the space magical? Søren and I had a wonderful time shopping and mingling with other mamas and littles, I can’t wait to go back again before it closes and do some more shopping exploring.

I picked up her newest cookbook, It’s All Easy, and am super excited to try out some of the recipes. I was always scared of her others (I’ve heard stories), but I mean this one has easy in the title, so how hard can it be? I also picked up a couple of swimsuits (I might be addicted), and this awesome yoga mat made from recycled wetsuits. I’ve included some of my other favorite goop picks below!
