As you can see, spoons are for combing your hair, slobbering on, tapping Papa on the shoulder with, and especially making noises on the table. Trust me when I say that there is never a dull moment eating brunch with the De La Rosa's.  We can't be beat!

Erick, Sofia and I had a delicious meal over the weekend: black bean cakes with chorizo and eggs for him, and dandelion root and leek omelette for me.  Sofia had bites of both, plus her own bowl of fruit and scrambled eggs.  The weekend was unusually warm, all of us spending most of the day trying not to break a sweat.

Pictured above:
M.Henry's gorgeous outdoor patio.  If you've never been, definitely give this spot a look. (And from what I hear, their Sunday brunch menu is even better then what we had!)


  1. It looks lovely there! and Sofia just get's cuter and cuter I swear!!

  2. Oh my goodness, she is soooo cute!!!! I can definitely understand why there's never a dull moment.

  3. I'm pretty sure we would wax you ;) looks like a lovely spot for brunch!

  4. Yum and yes, Sunday brunch is even better! We go almost every other weekend.

  5. Yum I have had a leek omelette before but not the dandelion root, that would be tasty!

    And the black bean cakes, I might have to see if I can find a recipe online for those, sounds so so good, and unique.

    I so remember when Madelynn was a babe and she'd do something similar with spoons or something and make loud sounds, I just loved it, aww miss that;)

    I love her necklace too!!

  6. Gorgeous photos, Sofia is beautiful and so full of character x

  7. M. Henry is very yummy and worth the sunday brunch wait :)

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
