military + pink

I made a fun discovery today.
My son is an awesome photographer. Not sure why I hadn't thought of it sooner, but the kid really has an eye. Their smiles and the peachy tint of twilight made last night's shoot a fantastic adventure. Plus nothing says adventurous like stopping by an antique railcar. Whatever can be done to quench the wanderlust.

My favorite time of year has finally arrived. Fiesta celebrations in Santa Barbara have created some of the best memories of my life. The music, the dancing, the food and celebrations all mingled under the curtain of stars against a backdrop of palm trees and the American Riviera is pretty surreal. It doesn't hurt that it also falls on either the week before or week of my birthday. Life in Santa Barbara comes to a halt as everyone flees work to descend upon the Mission, the mercados and the streets. Mariachi bands on every corner, Flamenco dancers at every turn. Giddyness!!
