Scoops of Ice Cream and a Santa Barbara Sunset

While I trudge through the snow in NYC on Valentine’s Day (don’t feel too sorry for me, my husband just flew out), I’m remembering one of my favorite sessions with the brilliant Leela Cyd. She captured Jeffrey and me on a post dinner stroll along the pier in Santa Barbara. We grabbed dessert and watched the sunset over our beautiful hometown. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your loved ones! Caroline xoxo

Snuggling and Santa Barbara Sunsets

I have to admit, I don’t spend nearly as much time at the beach as I should. For someone who lives in a beach town, you’d think I’d head down to the shores at the end of every day. Not so. I live up in a canyon and, whilst I can see the ocean, it seems like another world down there and my world up on a mountain is perfectly awesome. That said, it always feels like such a treat to make it down to the beach, walk the dogs and watch the sun go down with my lover.

Pedal Partners

Grabbing our bikes and taking them down the hill for a leisurely pedal around downtown is always time well spent, especially with Valentine’s Day approaching. And, while NYC is buried in snow, I’ll take as many days like these as I can… in no time I’ll be knee deep with the rest of them, trudging from one showroom to another. And as I’m sloshing around, the memory of a day spent clowning around Santa Barbara with my pedal partner, will keep me nice and toasty!

Feature in C Weddings Magazine

Caroline Diani in C Weddings

One of my favorite magazines to flip through during the planning stages of our wedding was C Weddings, so it was a total honor when they featured our wedding in their latest spring issue. It brings back all the magic that happened that day and always puts a smile on my face. Thank you C Weddings for sharing our special day.

A favorite picture from our wedding. I’ll share more of my favorites in the coming weeks.

You Spin Me Right Round Like A Record, Baby

We recently discovered a record store in Santa Barbara, thanks to our friend, Leela. This might be old news to some of you, but Warbler is so cool! My husband recently set up his old phonograph, and we merged our record collections. I had forgotten how much I love records and the experience of thumbing through all the covers is half the fun. It takes me back to the days when I first heard songs on the radio and saved all my pocket money to go and buy the record. My first record player was a portable that I would tote around to friends’ houses for sleepovers, and hauling out my old vinyl is bringing it all back in glorious analog!
