Friendsgiving in Ojai

Friends + Thanksgiving.

Friendsgiving.

STEY-02

Last November, my family and I spent a week with our close friends in a magical house in Ojai before the big Ventura fires took it away. But I’m grateful for the memories and these incredible pictures that Todd Pinckney took.

I look back on our trip to Ojai with friends and I feel so much gratitude towards them for their friendship and their faith and support in me and my family. For most of them, we’ve been doing life together for over 12 years and now growing families together is just so special to witness. God has created us to desire relationships and crave community and to have one like mine is just gold.

This month I was asked to collaborate with Susanna who is one of the 2 sisters of 4 Corners International Interior Design. She was featured on a morning segment on FOX 5 San Diego where she also gave me an awesome shout out! If you missed the segment, it’s on my Facebook page where I tried to record it with my phone but it cut of because I ran out of memory space due to taking too many picture of my kid and flowers. HA! Anyways, Susanna is so talented and creative and I was beyond honored to work with her on some florals and wreaths for her Thanksgiving Table Scape Photoshoot.  You all have probably started to see a lot of marsala and jewel tones in weddings and table decor due to its rising trend in rich, vibrant colors.  It’s no question that a little gold and brass can really bring out so much elegance and richness in those deep burgundy flowers, teal, and fuchsia.  Honestly, I am loving the jewel tones because it’s a new way to play with different color pallets.
