Greetings from California! Pete and I are spending a long weekend in the San Ynez Valley to photograph a wedding that's happening tomorrow. We made a last minute decision today to take a horseback ride on a 1,000 acre vineyard/farm. Everything went smoothly aside from my severe allergy to horses, which I thought may have decreased since my last ride a few years ago. But, alas, my eyes are swollen like golf balls and my nose has yet to stop running.
Sexy, I know.
Not to worry, though. We went to a wine tasting immediately after our ride (during which I really couldn't smell or taste anything—sigh) and I drown my allegry-ridden sorrows in the red and white.
In all seriousness, though, it's indescribably beautiful out here. I'll be sharing some images from our travels next week.
Until then . . . a little bit of long-distance Takeout.

+ This made me chuckle.
+ Being a teen in the 90s. Hilarious. I think #23—falling asleep under the stars—might be my favorite. Did anyone else choose to decorate their bedroom ceiling with those hideous things? As an aspiring interior decorater, I also chose to subsitute my closet door with rainbow colored beads. Sigh.
+ Super useful info.
