Happy Halloween from our clan to yours! We cannot wait to get outside to trick-or-treat with our new puppy, who is not very impressed with her new unicorn hat. Below are some more photos of our weekend at the pumpkin patch. We wish you all a wonderful Halloween and be safe!
To celebrate my husband's birthday, we went to Acacia House by Chris Cosentino located inside Las Alcobas Hotel. The food was excellent and their one-of-a-kind- margarita was exceptional! t was nice to be able to relax and catch up with friends after two stressful weeks from the Napa fires. Acacia House had a special menu item called the Napa Valley Spirit Menu whereby $10 was donated to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund in support of the victims of the fire. The food on that special was delicious and for a great cause. Cheers to great company and happiest birthday to mi amor!
We went to Sacramento for a couple of days to escape the smoke and get relief from the daily anxiety during the Napa fire. It was so nice to see blue sky and breathe clean air. And how cute is our puppy Stella! She is definitely making herself very comfortable in the trailer.

One of my newest discoveries has been the activewear collection by Lou & Grey called Form. I would wear these on my morning drop offs, morning meetings or Saturday morning coffee run and turn it into a walk, bootcamp, run or yoga class. Sharing some of my favorite finds below.

This is by far the easiest and yummiest lemon poppy seed cake I've ever made. The whole loaf was devoured by three very hungry monkeys before it had a chance to cool.
I highly recommend to get this book if you like to bake. Happy Monday! - xx Patricia
