I’m in Florida this weekend checking up on our house and enjoying the sunshine before heading back to California on Tuesday. On Friday I went to the sand sculpture contest at Siesta Key Beach, what fun to see so much creativity rise from the white sands of one of my favorite places on earth. I posted some pictures In Instagram stories If you are curious about the festival.
This time of year I struggle with how to recommend seasonal gifts and decor, without obsessing over buying all the things. I love highlighting creativity and ideas for celebrating the season. I’ve decided this year to post the roundups and gift recommendations on a single published page that I’ll update every day. I will share the recommendations in sections Instagram stories So you can get updates there, gifts for hosts, gifts for him and her etc.
