I managed to spill an entire Ommegang Hennepin on my computer keyboard so I'm just catching up on writing about our awesome summer. It started this past June in San Francisco. We go every summer for a couple of months but this year we were only there two weeks; so we tried to fit in Luca's favorite places in our favorite city that's become our home away from home.

summer fun

We're making jewelry, shipping orders and enjoying the lake at my family's home in Tennessee. I hope everyone's having a fun summer!

we made it to Hartwood. I stood in a very long line one day at 2:00 to get a 5:30 reservation that evening. Definitely well worth the wait. I had the grilled octopus and the ceviche. Awesome!
one morning after breakfast we walked down the gorgeous white sand beach to visit, Coqui Coqui, a small boutique and perfumery in a gorgeous hotel. It was my favorite.

Tulum is definitely one of the most gorgeous places I've been. The beach borders a lush jungle with small hotels, restaurants and shops lining a narrow seaside road. Even though Tulum seems to have hit its prime, it still has a small, bohemian vibe which we loved. We stayed beachside at La Zebra which was very kid friendly with a wood and rope beachside playground and in town at Villa Geminis condos
Our favorite things were: tacos in town at Taqueria Honorio food truck, whole grilled snapper at Casa Banana, homemade pasta at Posada Margherita, grilled octopus at Hartwood, ceviche in town at El Camello and Coqui Coqui fragrance and boutique. It was such an awesome trip. The funniest thing, almost everyone we met was from New York City, specifically Williamsburg. 


We are leaving for Tulum on Thursday for two weeks. I cannot wait! It's been a very long winter here in New York City. Tulum looks like a gorgeous, bohemian paradise. I read about the restaurant, Hartwood, on The Selby years ago and I've been dying to go ever since. Unfortunately it seems the whole world knows about it too. I'll report back whether Luca and Julian made it through the long line.
fyi - The website will be taking orders while we're on vacation but we won't be shipping until we return on Monday, April 20th. I'll have a banner posted on each page as a reminder and at checkout.
