I've been on the hunt for a Christmas tree farm since Mila's first Christmas, so I was excited to finally find Peltzer Pines (through JL Designs on Instagram). We visited their Brea farm location, which is less than an hour from Los Angeles.

Mila loved leading the way through the rows of trees. 

As a note, these trees are pines (not the firs that we're used to).

Choose your tree and they cut it down for you to take home. That's pretty fresh!

Visiting a tree farm was a fun family activity that I could easily see becoming an annual tradition. 

Mila's dress is Tutu Du Monde via Thumbeline and her moccasins are Lil'fut and Company.


The wonderful ladies of Babyccino Kids are bringing their ShopUp to Los Angeles! They'll be at Lombardi House Sunday, April 10th and Monday, April 11th. We're looking forward to all the participants and activities, but definitely need to get some shopping done with Mabo, crafting with Makers Mess and picture taking with Red Anchor Photo. More information on the event at Eventbrite.


We had a "fall" day in Southern California! So we stopped at McGrath Street Pumpkin Patch in Ventura to celebrate. We pass this patch on our [near weekly] drive to Santa Barbara so I was so excited to finally check it out.  

This pumpkin patch was just heaven on a cool, crisp day. Lots of space to run around, drive a wheelbarrow, pick out heirloom pumpkins and talk to the goats, llama and sheep.

These colors are killing me. 

I love that Mila got a chance to run through an actual patch. So much fun!
