What a crazy nice surprise! I just found the most thoughtful package on my doorstep full of books that I have been coveting over the past few years. This gift is beyond amazing. I am one lucky lady to have such a wonderful friend.

The Russian River

I love handmade maps and this one I saw this past weekend in Forestville really got me. Just look at that sweet handpainted type. Well done!

We just celebrated our one year anniversary this weekend with a little trip up north. If you ever find yourself in search of a fun California day, I recommend a canoe trip in the morning on the Russian River and then a drive down Route 1 for some Pacific oysters at Marshall’s Store. Be sure to time it right though since the store closes around 5 on the weekends. It kind of helps to paddle fast once you first launch your canoe anyway to beat the crowd a little.

I found these at the open air antique market in Santa Cruz. I was really drawn to the illustrations and beautiful typography.
