So Cal (Wannabe) Winter

Just a brief post to say hello!  My blog has been quiet for a looooong while as last year was one of the hardest of my life.  As many of you know my dad passed away, and it wasn’t a quick and painless goodbye.  To watch a parent suffer with cancer and slowly waste away – his last weeks are something I mostly wish I could forget though I know I never will.  I spent a couple of months quietly grieving and trying to decompress.  Even now the grief comes in waves and I miss him everyday.  Couple that with the fact that all of last year was an adjustment in terms of being a new mom.  It’s a 24/7 responsibility and it’s no joke.  To top it off, I couldn’t even relax over the holidays as I had to plan and prep for a two month trip to Europe.  Sounds great, but not when you’re location hopping in foreign countries with a feisty one-year-old and all her gear.  I spent most of the year feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Not depressed but seriously burnt out.  Although I love blogging, it wasn’t the first thing on my mind…

That being said, when I’m not blogging I ALWAYS miss it.  No matter how tired I am, I constantly desire to return to the creative process.  Unfortunately it’s a lot harder now because I’m home with Bianca most of the time.  I love my daughter to bits but I can’t wait til she starts preschool!  Until then I don’t think I’ll have the ability to blog consistently.  However, I definitely want to get back to it and I plan on posting content throughout the year even if I can’t do it all the time.  The look above was spontaneous and I felt like putting it up because I’m itching to get back to work.  Europe was freezing so when I returned to a very warm January in LA I thought OMG where did the winter go?  It’s been 100% spring weather until now.  Suddenly as February comes to an end, the temperature has dropped and we might even get some snow in the mountains.  This look is just a casual day running errands for me.  I love red sweaters and this one has some fun open-knit detail.  It’s sold out but you can shop a nearly identical style here which happens to be on sale!
