Cool Running

I know that I have been spoiled with my recent travels to warmer destinations...but lets get real for a second and recognize the fact that it is definitely Fall, soon to be Winter, in many places. 
We were home for a few days last week in between trips and when I woke up in the morning it was 34 degrees outside. Lets just say that's a bit of a shock to the system! Also an excuse for some shopping for new, warmer, running gear. 
For me, I love a good pair of running tights and how cute are the ones below from Nike?! Also love a good hoodie, shorts for layering and a dry wick tank to keep me warm in my core. You also can't forget the extremities; head, ears, neck & I love the headband, neck warmer and snug mitties.

After a good run, I also love to continue on the calorie burn with some yoga & abs which I like to do in a looser sweat (which are also perfect for post workout lounging).

When I graduated college in the Bay Area I worked for years in Catering Sales and during that time did more weddings that I can even remember. Although it was paid there were certainly many nights that I wished I was a guest at some of the beautiful venues, top of my list was always Nestledown. A magical forest oasis tucked into the Santa Cruz Mountains that was completely out of this world beautiful. So...when our friends wedding invitation arrived for their wedding here you could say that I was a bit excited!

It was every bit as beautiful as I remembered and our friends wedding was absolutely perfect. 

Lets just say, I could easily live here on property and never want to leave.

Happy Friday & Happy Weekend.

I love a good excuse to dress up - especially when it comes to wedding festivities. People always bring their A game...and I must keep up.

Since the pre-wedding dinner was beach side I went with one a long, comfortable piece with a low back that made it just perfect for the evening. I am a big believer of leaving the dramatic to one area - as to not over do it.

The Dream Inn, in Santa Cruz, was just as perfect as I could have imagined. Beach front, brightly colored decor and minimalistic design. Definitely a great spot for our close friends wedding weekend. 

We could not love these two more - definitely one of the best things that came out of our time in San Diego.

Last but not least my love - 10 years this year and every wedding we attend is a reminder of how lucky we are to have so many great years to come!
