After a hectic few weeks, it was great to put life on pause for a moment and rest up in Santa Cruz. From dinner at Shadow Brook to vintage jewelry shopping to blizzards at Dairy Queen to a morning walk on the beach with Ziggy, I got to do partake in some of my favorite beach town pastimes. I even met with a few local artists during Open Studio's currently going on in Santa Cruz. Although it wasn't the best weekend for Bay Area sports, it's the rough times that make you appreciate the great ones. Not to worry, we'll come back stronger than ever.
1. The last hydrangea's of the season.
2. Water color painted seashells outlining a planter
3. A shell full of glass beads - I'm determined to learn how to do this.
