Happy Fall from Carmel Valley

Monday, October 27, 2014


We spent Saturday in Carmel Valley at Earthbound Farm Stand's Fall Day. The farm stand is one of our favorite places to take John Shea. He gets to freely roam and pick from the veggie and herb gardens, play with and/or eat dirt, or right now during Fall, roll pumpkins from their huge, beautiful patch, all while we sit outside eating something yummy from the cafe or drinking a coffee watching him.

Thank you Deb, Jon and baby Nora for making the drive to come spend time with us!!! Deb became like a little sister to me in college. She came and visited me in DC after I followed my heart (Cam) and wasn't able to make it across the country again for our wedding. Then we moved to Okinawa... and just like that, five years have passed without seeing each other. While we were in Oki, she got married and had sweet Nora, I had John, and now finally reunited, we got to meet each other's spouses and babies and catch up on years. It felt like only days!! Her and her little family could not be more lovely. We loved getting to spend that time together, Fosters!


I loved their eucalyptus and flower chandelier hanging in the barn!


The chilly weather we had all morning turned into about 90 degrees when we took these... lucky for John Shea we can take off his shoes and socks and let him run loose barefoot, but I was sweating!

  1. Beautiful! Love the snip your own herbs and mix and match idea. I hate having to buy a whole bunch of one kind of herb at the store and I never use it all!

    1. Me too! We started growing our own and it's so much cheaper and easier to use whatever I need!
