good day sunshine

it's always so hard to remember it's the dead of winter in santa barbara this time of year. it's almost a given that the weather for christmas will be gorgeous and that next couple weeks will follow suit.

it's rad but it can also be a bit of a tease. every year i fool myself into feeling that spring is almost here because the sun's out, the sky's blue and the holiday madness is behind me.

but i'm not complaining. i'll take a sunny interlude any time. i sure love me a cozy, rainy day but it feels like heaven to take our morning walk in a tank top and spend my days soaking in some warmth with my favorite guy – in january.

we packed a picnic and headed over to the beach yesterday afternoon. it was time well spent, let me tell you. i think both bonzo and i drove home feeling completely reinvigorated.

and picking oranges in the backyard on a sunny day? pretty delish.

oh heaven. what a day. and your orchard continues to amaze. wow. i'm torn between relishing the idea of spring-like warmth... and truly craving a dark, dramatic storm. it's just been freezing here, so either would do!

I'm in the North San Diego area so I know exactly what you're talking about! It just feels wrong to dress in Summery clothes in January, but sometimes you literally have to because its just plain hot! Such is life on the California Coast!

On a side note, I LOVE what you did with your photos with the arrow pointing to the moon. I was just out taking some photos of Heidi pointing at the moon but I couldn't capture her and the moon in the same frame. This is the perfect solution!

This makes me miss sb something terrible! ( I went to UCSB) We are having the beautiful weather up here (Sonoma county) but the beach isn't the same or as close. Great pictures.

picking oranges in my parents santa barbara backyard during the winter when it's sunny is one of my favorite things.
