i am heading to sunny LA tomorrow and am pinching myself! This will be my very very first time to California...I will be on a shopping and inspiration trip for our team at Target looking out for exciting things for our next Spring season. These are some shots from the Viceroy hotel in Santa Monica where we will be crashing.:)

I am so glad I happened upon this blog last week. I spent hours reading through artist Lily Stockman's current adventures in India with her husband and found reading her stories especially inspiring at the start of this new year. She is a great example of seizing opportunities and has inspired me to keep all windows of opportunities wide open. Her photography also inspired me to invest in a new SLR camera sometime this year! Her blog is a must read. All photos from BigBANG studio.
I received a treasure for Christmas. My mom compiled all the recipes that we grew up with and she is still proficient in making into a beautiful book entitled, "Mother Rabbit Cooks." Every page tells a story of where the recipe came from and tips and tricks from Mother Rabbit herself. I am blessed to have a mother who values the time around the table as a family and spending time in the kitchen. She has taught me to eat fresh, local foods, to always use whole milk and real butter, and I would never ever dream of buying a cake, cupcakes, or cookies from the store. I love being able to appreciate all the wonderful things about my mom in a whole new way as an adult...thank you mother rabbit!

This is my third winter here in Minneapolis, and while this has most definitely been the worst weather wise, I must say my spirits (no pun intended;) and outlook about this season here in the North are better than ever. There are a few very tangible things that I have discovered to help me in these cold months that I thought I would share with you.
