a near-perfect day…or “friday” in california

I’m home in California for a much-needed vacation with my family. It’s glorious. The weather is perfect…like they do here. In just one day I knocked out one of my favorite runs with a stunning view, went to my favorite diner and froyo spot, and got to hang with some of my very favorite people. So I just thought I’d share a few photos with you…not to make you jealous or anything ;)

The view waking up at home in So Cal:

I picked oranges and grapefruit for the best juice you’ve ever tasted. Seriously, I can’t eat grocery store oranges because these have ruined me for all other oranges. And we have some pomegranates coming in!

The BEST pancakes you’ve ever had in your entire life are lovingly made from scratch with the original 1949 buttermilk pancake recipe at Norms diner:

And I made a beautifully simple salad with ingredients from our garden. Tomatoes with basil, balsamic, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepp. I get my green thumb from my momma :)

French phrase for fun:

J’adore la californie.

I love California.
