with eight (and a half?) separate schedules, commitments, and lives, it’s pretty difficult to get my little clan together these days. but somehow we managed to make it work last night. in honor of my aunt’s birthday (which is actually today -yay! happy birthday!), my tribe gathered at morada at the inn at rancho santa fe for a meal on the patio. we exchanged stories, sipped wine, shared cheese plates, and most importantly, fawned over my nephew who, at a little over two years old, is both the cutest and most entertaining tiny human ever.
between the weather, the company, the food, and the atmosphere, it was about as close to perfect as you can get for a monday.2
