I was super lucky to get to celebrate my extended birhtday up in the Yosemite Mountains with family and friends!
We had the best time exploring the gorgeous land of Yosemite, antique shopping through old towns in the Mountains, cooking together, laughing and of course having impromptu dance sessions with live music.

Can you believe I got this dress for $8.00 at Buffalo Exchange in their Vintage section?
I love how the dress has a tropical floral print and bold colors that arn't too Hawaiian but more Retro-Vacation in the Bahamas with the lovely silhouette.

I swear I didn't drink all the Champagne out of those glasses on the table.
We had the most awesome guy giving us our tastings as he kept letting us 'revisit' the Champagnes we were in favor of.
Nothing is more fun than going wine tasting with the fam...and of course taking alcohol induced photos.

I am getting a lot of use out of my 'illusion' skirt.
This skirt is not only comfortable but provides the perfect element of interest to any outfit.
I was perfectly comfortable while I shopped with my sister and brother on Haight Street. 
This band Jugtown Pirates was awesome--they had one of my favorite instruments which is the stand up Bass and they played great bluegrass music.  
A band playing in the stoop of an apartment is one of the many things that can remind me why I love this city...along with the amazing sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Spring Flowers & Ribbon Braids

I love making these ribbon braids. 
They are so feminine and I couldn't resist putting some fresh flowers from the garden around the braid to make the perfect Spring crown.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Arriba!
