A couple of weeks ago I went on a much needed girls trip (sans kids!) to Healdsburg, CA to celebrate the very belated birthday of my friend Meg. The funniest thing about this trip was that we all kept going back to this amazing store/cafe/restaurant/gardening shop called Shed. I've never seen anything like it -- from the tiles around the cafe bar to the perfect open kitchen (seriously, my dream kitchen) to the expertly curated finds around the shop, this place was a total dream. I couldn't stop taking pictures with my phone and I'm sharing many of them right here.
The weeks leading up to this day were pretty challenging in the parenting-of-an-almost-four-year-old department. Knowing full well that all the testing (of my patience) was developmentally appropriate, I was still at my wits end. So this trip was very much needed. I loved catching up with good friends Carrie, Jacinta, Nancy, and Meg and sharing stories over delicious savory and sweet treats, coffee, and ice cream. By the way, things are a thousand times better thanks in part to the best extra deep tissue massage I've ever had at Spa Dolce by Michelle, and a little refresher of The Happiest Toddler on the Block.
