Bits And Tips

Could I Have ThatIn the early 70’s my grandparents bought a ranch just outside of Sacramento in Roseville. My grandmother’s impeccable taste paired with my grandfather’s love for the land and rancher sensibility made for one special place. My memories as a child were nothing short of idyllic—riding horses, collecting peacock feathers, bubble baths in my grandmothers giant tub, collecting eggs in the chicken coup and exploring all-the-time. However as I got older (along with my grandparents) the more I got to know them and realized how amazing their ride as been. Each time I’ve gone for a visit I’ve left feeling more connected, more inspired and more motivated to be more like them. After loosing my grandfather (Oumpie) in March, we’ve been holding on to moments with my grandmother (Oumie) and feeling grateful that Elin’s had a chance to meet both of them. Over the three-day weekend we packed up the car and made the 6+ hour drive to spend some quality time there. Here are some iPhone snaps from our quick trip.

Also Elin was all about her dad this weekend—”go with dada” was on repeat. }
